It's official! I am a fiber freak! Well, OK, maybe not a freak. Budur graciously gave me her spinning wheel as she would not be able to use it. I lost no time in trying my first spin. Unsuccessfully, I might add; but, good enough to get addicted. Thank you Budur!
A week ago, and a trip to Greensboro on the Motorcycle, I pack on five pounds of corriedale fleece, a creme, and a very dark brown and a pound of assorted navajo-churro. (I wanted to get the feel of the rougher side of wool).
Here are my second offerings! This is the first full bobbin, I"m now spinning the second and I'll ply them together. Since it's MWK not MWS, I can't wait to knit my first skein of hand carded, hand spun wool. This is the creme Corriedale (Sheep's name: Couer de le Creme)
