Day 5: Was a fairly straightforward day. Sit and spin. Take pictures. Done. It is just more of the same. I am measuring my Russian Spindle progress by winding it only on the top so I can see how much I am getting done. It is working fairly well to keep me motivated.
It worked! I managed to get the camel color I needed.
Here is the previous lightest brown I could manage and the newest lightest brown. Yay!
Day 6's spinning total looked only looked like this because I spent my time playing with dye instead.
Another nagging issue is the quality of my spinning. I was very disappointed in the lumpy bumpiness of the blue/green Corrie. It is supposed to be for socks and lumpy isn't good for socks. I never had trouble spinning any of the other Corrie for socks so what's up with that?
I must be slowly losing it because it all of a sudden it came to me: when Daddio and I were carding these locks he was stuffing handfuls of Party in a Bag mixed fiber into the carder. Duh. That's why there is so much weird variation in texture making all the lumps and bumps. I haven't lost my spinning mojo, I am just spinning something not designed to be smooth. Whew. What a relief.
