Once it was washed I just had to sample it. Well, I couldn't just let it sit there and look pretty in a basket! It spins up easily.
I ran the hand cards over it lightly, once or twice, and from there I rolled it off onto a size 17 knitting needle, and spun from the end of the "cigar". Here is a close up with the infamous dime shot on the Quebec wheel.
I've also been experimenting with a new toy. Grace let me borrow her Inkle Loom so I could learn about sheds and pick up patterns. I am having fun.
Too bad there are other responsibilities in life that cut into my fiber time. When creative ideas run wild, I find it hard to think of anything else. Right now I have about 6 projects that are in progress...and still more percolating in the background. I keep taking off on different tangents....
