More roving!

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

Ok so the rest of my roving showed up today. Here are some pics. It's from Copperpot on etsy, and they are gorgeous! I'm quickly gaining experience with the spinning and it's going well. I have spun quite a bit today and the more practice the better! See how sparkly they are???This is the last of my treasures that I ordered, I went a little crazy there for a bit. I was just so inspired by my wheel. Here's an update pic of my bobbin. This is my pink merino and it's spinning up really well! Very thin. I'm not sure exactly how much is there since the white is below it, but I will have to guess when I spin onto another bobbin to have some to ply.On a sad note, the sock I showed you yesterday, well it was too small to fit over my fat foot. Ok well my foot isn't that fat, but somehow it didn't fit. So it's been frogged and I'm trying over again on size three's. I'm a little worried that it might be too big now, but we'll see. I'll try it on when I get through at least a repeat. Hopefully it fits.

That roving makes me want to learn how to spin!

There are way too many colors to choose from over at! I'm leaning towards the jade or charcoal...but who knows. Dumb questions...I just need the 2 oz. ball right?

I love the rovings you bought! The Angelina blended in them really make them special.

Your singles look wonderful. You've had your wheel for less then a week and it looks like you're already spinning like a pro!

Wow the rovings are gorgeous! The colors remind me of fairies for some reason. It could be because of how sparkly it is. Very very lovely dear!
