This is a pic of what I've been working on spinning. I've been following Ted's method and have been rotating bobbins each night that I spin in order to see if this seems to help with producing a more even yarn. Even Ted admits that he's not sure that it makes a difference, but I figure it can't hurt to try. I'm at a stage, though, where I couldn't honestly say whether a more even yarn would due to switching bobbins out or just improvement in my technique, in general. In any event, the plan is to ply this into a 3-ply yarn.
The fleece is Madelyn's from last year. I suppose I'll have to wait and see how much comes of this 3-ply project, but at some point, I also have some wool I bought at Fiber Frolic that I want to play with - a good bit of merino roving, as well as some Shetland/Icelandic cross roving - and I have some wool (unspecified breed) that I've Kool-Aid dyed (grape turned it a bright, flaming red) and plan on blending with a little sample baggie of mohair David didn't have any use for.
Work was very busy last night, but I did have a little down time to sit down with TSKP and managed to finish the third out of 19 pieces.
And just 'cause, here's a pic of David (on the right) and myself (on the left) at Grindstone Point in Winter Harbor, Maine - where my paternal grandmother grew up - last summer.
