I received my order from CMF the other day and the colors just begged to be spun. Yellow as bright as daffodils that have yet to poke their noses thru the soil here in the Mountains.
I have never spun superwash merino until now and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying it, even if the texture is very different. Spinning it with a bit more twist than I normally would, as I get the feeling that this will bloom alot once it is wet. I'm hoping that I am getting the right amount of twist to keep the pills away, but still soft enough that it will be comfy on the feet.....we will see.
Teyani emailed me this week after I mentioned how much I love the names on her rovings and yarn. She thought I could probably guess she was an aging hippie....LOL. Well grrl....I am right there with you....LOL!
The funny thing is, my middle daughter who is graduating from college this year has discovered the music of the 60's and early 70's during her college experience. As evidenced in this picture, you can see what a huge fan she is of Bob Dylan who also at one time sang Big Yellow Taxi.
Music has always been such a huge part of my life. I can hear a song and almost pinpoint where I was in my life when I heard it....I bet alot of you can too. One of the very first blog contests I entered was Vicky's music questions from 1976. That was the year I graduated from High School, so I had a blast going down memory lane with her. This was the first and almost only contest I have ever won....haha!
Anyhoo.........I LOVE the names and I LOVE the roving! It feels good to be spinning again!
Leaving On A Jet Plane..
For any of you wondering which picture won out for my ad....here is the picture that we went with :-). As much as I loved the other picture, her breeder loved this one more. I figured I should probably go with her choice as she has always done a fantastic job on this yearbook.....and heck, what do I know....LOL!
I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!
