WHY SLEEP WHEN YOU CAN SPIN?
Or, truthfully--What to do when you wake up from a middle-of-the-night nap:
This is just over 51oz of handspun yarn, over half of which I spun on my Journey Wheel during the Night Float rotation. The green is Bountiful's Alpine Meadow "Springtime" blend. The blue is Louet 70/30 merino/silk. The salmon/coral was spun from batts from Lucky Duck Farm (click here for their Ebay auctions). The heathery skeins are spun from Hatchtown Farm's roving and Bountiful's Wildflower blend--made up from the end-of-day carding leftovers.
This was my best attempt to spin through my fiber stash, but it backfired in the end. I got so enthusiastic about spinning again that I went a bit wild online. There's about 5.5lbs of roving and batts on there way to me as I write.
What to do with these skeins? I'm thinking of another Obi, since I liked the first one so much. Hmmmm.
