Still spinning

Still working on my Water Lilies roving from Laura, in hopes of finishing it all in time for our Navajo-plying lesson (IF I can meet up with her for our Navajo-plying lesson!).

Wouldn't have a problem finishing it if I could spend as much time on it as the spider girls in the sheep fold do!

That's it for now from . . .

Your yarn is BEAUTIFUL!!! I bet the picture just does not do it justice either.. I love the colors. Thanks for sharing that. too many sick days and gray skies here and the color is refreshing.

Even though I don't like spiders very well God gave them something neat in the way they spin their webs. Just like your spinning; you have such a talent for it. I hope someday that I can learn.

Love that color Michelle!

What do you mean IF... I have to stay Sunday night to look at a traffic plan in Salem on Monday.

You are spinning spider threads, that's for sure. What's the word on Jackson?

Lovely singles! That will make gorgeous chain-plyed* yarn. You'll get the hang of it real quick once you see how it's worked in real life. The nice thing about chain-plying is the relaxed rhythm that one falls into after just a bit.

*I have a hard time with the term Navajo plyed - never saw or heard of a Navajo doing a chain ply, they always plyed the regular way. There's thought that Amos Alden coined the term. The term is not to be found anywhere until it appeared in his book.

Thanks Melanie, Voni, Becky and Sharon!

Laura, Rick was contemplating a horse-camping trip this weekend. :-/ I don't think we're going, so there's still hope I'll make it to OFFF on Friday. If not, spend Sunday night here!

Wanda, my spinning mentor Laura gave me ten lashes with a wet noodle when I used the more politically correct term! ;-)
