I Hate My Camera
Still working the spinning wheel. This is a Grafton Fibers batt. And yes, it is as bright pink as the photo shows. (A neighbor came over to ask what I was doing and The Boy pointed to the wheel and said, "Wheel, wheel." Said in a tone like, "You dingbat- it's a spinning wheel!" Very funny.)
This is the first time that I'm seriously working from dyed roving and I have to admit, there is a noticeable difference. The BFL literally melted out of my fingers. With this, I can feel (maybe a) stickiness...not stickiness, but more of a not natural wool feeling. Maybe it's my imagination. Maybe it's my wheel being cranky.
Today is a busy day. I have an algebra exam at 5, 2 homework assignments due at 7 pm and packing to do for 3 people. Of this, I've only packed my suitcase so far. Is that any indication of where my head is at? Probably. This weekend is Maryland Sheep and Wool, a hockey tourney for Hubs and The Boy is going to Grammie and Papa's house.
Please don't rob us while we're gone.
