I can't have a blog post without a photo. It just looks empty. In my eternal search for THE hobby, I've worked in stained glass. I've made a handful of windows and two or three lamps. This photo looks kind of weird because I color corrected to get the color of the shade to look right. It was photographing all washed out.
There was some actual spinning tonight but it was the never-ending Cormo and it's white and you've seen it before. I think I'll get the third bobbin spun this weekend so I can make my first 3-ply yarn. Hoo, boy, a 3-ply! And then I'm either going to spin the gorgeous BFL roving that Georgia sent me or some Superwash Merino for sock yarn. I found and joined the Tour de Fleece today. (Sorry, I can't find the link at the moment. I have a suspicion there may be more than one.) What the heck. I spin every day anyway.
Back to the Cormo briefly: This may be obvious to everyone but me but I found that when spinning from the lock, the wool drafted so much easier if I held the lock with the tip to me and the cut end away. The wool drafts with the grain instead of against it. You know, all the little scales that snag on each other when wool felts. It's made a huge difference when I spin.
Have a good weekend everyone.
