Yarn I'm spinning
This is the Corriedale roving I was spinning. The first photo shows the single and the true color of the yarn. The second photo is the yarn plyed and is a little bit bright because of the flash. In the first photo you can see the bag of roving behind the spinning wheel. I still have enough roving for one more skein.
Weaving is hard!!! I can't seem to get the hang of it and I will probably be taking a lesson soon. I decided to knit this shawl I have a pattern for and since I can't read patterns I will have to get some help on that as well! But I am going to use the Corriedale and the Cormo/Angora I am spinning right now to create the shawl. Purple-blue and gold will go well together. You have to knit with two yarns at the same time. (fun) I have problems with some of the stitches and need to be shown how to knit them. I will get some photos of the Cormo/Angora yarn and post those tomorrow. I am also spinning some giant angora on my drop spindle which I have an order for. I can do that while at work and I also taught my friend Norma to spin today and she is going strong. Only took her 2 minutes! Almost like she was born to do it.
