I got stood up for a job interview this evening!!! I had been trying to meet with this person since sometime in April… so three months now? I was looking forward to finally figuring out what this job would be all about, whether it would be a good fit, etc. and then they never showed up. Frustrating!
Instead of all that, lets go to our Happy Place and talk about wool. 🙂 I had not been spinning too much and that made me sad, so I’m trying to spin a little bit every day. I wasn’t on the ball enough to take part in Toure de Fleece (I think I missed the first few days) but I’m still enjoying seeing everybody else’s progress and it’s making me want to spin more!
Here’s where I’m at:
|Black Jacob wool.|
I’ve just finished spinning up the 1 oz of Black Jacob wool for my spinner’s study, so you can expect a post showcasing the finished yarn and a new breed within a few days!
|CY Bugga Fiber, Merino/cashmere/nylon|
This is the second cop of my Bugga fiber, I think I’m about halfway through the 4 oz. It’s amazing how long it takes to spin when you don’t work on it. 😉 I’m not sure why I’m procrastinating this one. I don’t really love the feel of the nylon, I think, and the fiber is somewhat compacted so it’s not as easy to spin as fluffier stuff. The colors are lovely and it is plenty soft, it’s just a little tricky to spin sometimes.
I think these will help me get more spinning done, though:
I have been on the hunt for good bags for my spindles since I got them and finally found a couple at a cookware store! Go figure, right? I actually cannot fathom what these bags are actually intended for but they’re made of nice plastic-lined canvas, have velcro tops, and a handle and they are just the right size for a few ounces of fiber and a spindle so I dub them perfect spindle bags. How do you store/carry your spindles/spinning?
