spinning and spinning and spinning

Went to Amy’s spin-in on Saturday with She Who Never Posts. Had a great time and saw Julie and some other folks. I seem to have my spin groove back. For the moment I know, but let me wallow in it…

I spun up some alpaca I’ve had around for a couple of years that had a very little bit on a single bobbin…

Details in Ravelry page, but basically a 2 ply, sport-ish, 350 yds.

Next up… experimenting with that long draw on some fiber I’m not loving too much anymore. (Is that Amy’s alter-ego in that painting, wearing her braids with the bow in her hair???? bwahahahahaha)

    Sounds like it was a fun day. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it. Work has been crazy for me! I love the alpaca.

    I see you spun more since leaving Amy’s; you’re alpaca looks lovely! I have not spun an inch since Saturday. :-( Seems lately the only time I do spin is when I’m with a group; need to change that! It was great to see you!

    The alpaca is beautiful – even nicer in person than in the picture. I also love the raspberry you spun last night.
