There is nothing going on here today. Once again everything's canceled which is fine by me. I'm no fan of sitting outside getting eaten by mosquitoes in order to watch some mediocre fireworks. There's no family gathering either. I'll be spending my day with the Tour. Here's the progress on the Ladybug for week one. I LOVE this humbug merino. I can't wait to turn it into something.
The spindles haven't been getting much love. All heck always breaks loose every morning just when I want to sit and spin. It's like the critters plan it ahead of time and take turns being a nuisance.
For some reason I have three spindles going with the same fiber. All I have left is that little bit you see. I swear I have more but I can't find it. I'll keep searching.
I am getting close to a wind off with the lovely garnet colored merino that I just started specifically for the Tour.
I am happy to say this is the year I've made peace with spinning cotton. My fingers are finally getting the message that it is nothing like wool so it hasn't been the slog it's been in years past. I really want enough to do some weaving with when I can get the loom out again.
My loom.....wow. It's been so long since I've seen the poor thing. I hope I still remember how to weave. I can't unpack it until we finish the kitchen and you know how that's going...........sigh.
