It is a bit of a dreary morning. The thunder started around 1:00 in the morning and I knew it did because Brownie, the farm dog, does not like thunder. Nordoes she like me to sleep when it thunders so I just went ahead and got up to brave the storm with her. She calms down if I turn the television on so we watched Midwife until 3:30 am at which point I quietly lay my head on the couch pillow so as not to clue her in and fell asleep. This is a good day to spend in my fiber room.
I took my spinning wheel on my recent trip and finished half of the Gaillardia fibre sitting in my cousin’s art room. I have a fibre room. She has an art room. The Cheviot is a little rougher than I am used to and it is not spinning smooth to my preference but I think it will be fine. This first half of the fibre was split into narrow strips so the color repeats are faster and more blended whereas ………
The second bobbin is being spun in long color stretches as fractal spinning dictates. The first part of my morning was spent spinning the aforementioned bobbin. The second half of my time I worked on winding my recently plied silk blend onto the niddy noddy. There was quite a bit.
With the other matching skein I have a lot of yardage. I originally bought this beautiful blue fibre to go with it and it will be the next spinning project on my wheel when the Gaillardia fibre is finished.
