365.333 ... 20100118MI wanted to write about several projects I’ve been working on but forgot to charge the camera battery and thus there are no photos. Project write ups aren’t fun without photos.

I’ve been spinning. So far this month I’m averaging about 5 minutes a day. I’ve missed a day or two, but I’ve figured out how to work it into my day and remind myself that it is leading toward a business goal so it is not something I should do and feel guilt about.

What have I been spinning?

Some alpaca. Since this photo I’ve spun up half of the 2.75oz I purchases at Maryland last year and am 15 minutes into the second bobbin.

  1. Very nice! That will make something lovely, soft and fluffy when you’re done. Now, however, do you just occasionally stroke it as you walk past the wheel? Or am I the only one who does that?

    1. I pet it *all* the time and have been known to put my nose to the bobbin and SMELL the fibre. I’m not quite pleased with my drafting technique but I am being consistent; I’m not experienced enough yet to say, ok to spin a yarn that looks and feels like X i have to draft like this. So we’ll see how it turns out.

  2. It looks like you have some help. :-)
