A Little Rough Stuff

My walnut dyed Cormo batts are spun and I am in the process of chain plying them on a spindle. I get quite a good workout throwing that spindle all over the place while pulling the loops through each other. I am still pretty terrible at it but it gives me that "just learned to spin" look that I want for this "guy" hat. It has a rustic look but not a rustic feel. I know I have said it before but I just have to say it again. I love Cormo. It is so light, soft and springy. Not an itch anywhere in it. If I hadn't washed it myself I would never believe that this came off a sheep.
