Thought I would take a minute with a cup of coffee before I did an hour of spinning. It's one of those gray winter days that make me feel like I should be hibernating. Instead, I made myself go out and put the chickens in, got the mail and put the supper in the oven. Now that chores are out of the way, I can indulge in a little me time. Am hoping to get this roving spun soon so that I can work on my idea for the warp I have in mind. I am going to spin a pre-dyed merino/silk roving and then ply the alpaca with it, thus creating color in the gray, but not by carding it in. I am not sure what the weft will be yet. One yarn at a time. And I just agreed to be a spinning mentor to a college student for a class she has this semester. I must be nuts.
