I don't know about you, but I spun away today while watching the opening day time trial in London. I thought about all of us spinners, working along together with our collective pounds of different colors of fibers and blends.
We are spinning everything from lace to bulky. We are spinning various fibers too. Today, I spun 4 oz. of merino-targhee-rambouillet blend from Ronnie's Homespun, dyed by her nine year old grandson. I also spun some mill ends and mohair into a second skein when I wanted to spin more.
My neck hurts, my back hurts, I have a headache. I spun way too much and I am rusty. But it felt great! Today's lesson: I am reminded to have better posture at the wheel.
No pics here yet as I am still on the bobbin... but check out the awesome Craftsters who have already something to show. Also, in the Flickr pool we already have lots of inspiring action. I'm really proud of everyone showing up on the first day! Tomorrow: The road to Canterbury!
How about the rest of you? What are you spinning?
