Spinning

Last summer my friend Lizzy went home to the Minnesota state fair, and brought me home a lovely little bag of the most beautiful hand-dyed roving from this farm. I have been trying to decide what I want to make out of this little piece of heaven, and after staring at it for months, I finally broke out my spinning wheel and started spinning.



It took me a while to set the tension on my wheel, (It's been so long since I looked at that thing!) but I finally got into my groove, and quickly spun out this small amount of yarn. I also spun a little bit of white roving while I was at it, so that I'd have enough to knit something, too. I don't know what I'll make out of the yarn yet, but when I figure it out, I'll let you know!
