If wishes were fibers, beggars would be wallowing in this dreamy white alpaca! I let the owner know as requested how the sample of white roving/top was spinning up. She was glad to hear it was good quality and proposed a trade - she'd give me the rest of it to spin, and I'll give her half the resulting yarn. I'm very excited, as this will be the first yarn I've spun for anyone else, and the fiber is such a pleasure to work with. Maybe I'll tire of it by the end of the project (I don't know how much there is; I'll pick it up when I've finished spinning the sample), but that's hard to imagine. Now to find more time to spin!
It's easier to find time to knit, as it isn't a "secret indulgence." I've been working away on the Abrazo vest, even though I should be knitting the sleeves for my friend's Sonnet (her birthday was, um, yesterday). I'm working on the upper back of Abrazo right now. I'm anxious to finish it so I can try it on!
That's it for now at . . .
