I have been doing a little more spindle spinning than my usual, as it requires nothing in the way of brain power or valuable floor space. On a positive note I did bring a bit of spinning fiber with me through both of my moves in the last 3 mnths. (Did I mention moving sucks?)
So I have been working on some commercially prepared white cotton roving, and also on my Fall (that's my name for it) wool roving. The colors are sooooooo rich and I am even thinking that it may turn out to be sock yarn...maybe.
Here are a few shots.
I still have a bit, quite a bit actually, of the Fall roving. I have one ball all nice and plied and one ball of singles. Lots more spinning before I can do any more plying of the wool.
But this is the end of the white cotton roving. It will be plied next. I have been spinning for weeks and weeks on both of these!
I was trying to catch the brilliant colors in the sunlight, still working on the best location for pictures.
