F is for First Bobbin

I am not ready for G… I am not yet done with F! Well, maybe this can also be G for goat babies!

Did I have fun yesterday at Pogo’s? You betcha!

Lorna Doone and I forget the chocolate boy’s name… begins with L. Pogo had to help Lorna Doone into the world. The chocolate boy is special, I don’t know much about goats, but maybe this color is unusual in angora goats? All I know is they’re wicked cunnin’!

Another wicked cute girl kid (her name also begins with L),

More goat pics here.

I rented a wheel for the month… Here it is in my native environs…complete with dog bones and

in the dark because I’m spinning to a background of Super Mario Smash Brothers and the shades are down… oh look, light!

First bobbin!

So I’m a person obsessed at the moment. I got to worrying…what if I spin up the pound of roving by the end of Sunday? What will I spin with? What odd things do I have around that I could spin? Should I get those cassette tapes out of the closet? Then I remembered… I do have some fiber animals!

They need some touch-ups (and I need a better clipper, as in one where the guard doesn’t fall off if you look at it, AND I should take some lessons), but this can all wait a couple of weeks.

F is also for Family

And some old photos of mom with her first love.

My niece said, “Memere, you were such a hottie” (!) This niece looks much like my mom at this age. Mom and Bill don’t quite look like this anymore, but they are very much enjoying each other’s company again.

    The goat babies are very cute! That first picture of your mom looks like it should be on a pin-up calendar!

    A word of warning: anything spun/knit from dog hair will forever after still smell of dog. Especially if it gets wet, say, with snow or rain. Ask me how I know…

    Yeah for your first bobbin! It can be addictive, but a pound is a lot of roving for one weekend. Happy spinning!

    Oh my – looks like I have fallen behind again. Nice “f” entries, by the way – I have yet to see any flowers of any kind myself, though I did see a robin pulling a worm out of the ground, just like you read about.

    Looks like you have fallen hard with the spinning bug – can’t wait to hear how your weekend was!
