Slowly the bird houses are coming along. They are now decorated, wet down.
They have been rubbed and rolled and stuffed into the tops of pantyhose. They are ready to full. With some luck that will be tomorrows job.
Two days this week I was at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show. I was demonstrating spinning with a few friends. I took some mixed batts I made buy collecting my odd bits together and running them through the carder. They have lots of colour and neps.
On day one I spun up 2 very bulky singles and one medium weight single in pinks.
Today I plied the 2 bulkies together. My wheel is not designed for such bulky yarn but with perseverance and a few choice words under my breath I got it plied.
After that I was tired of pink so I switched to my drop spindle and the blue green batt.
I am afraid I don’t have anymore pictures that turned out. We were right in front of a big picture window that was a very nice spot but not good for taking pictures as you can see from the picture of me spinning.
I think I’ve done really well with working and playing with fiber this week. I hope I can keep it up.
