    @Sfgwife Thank you for the encouragement! I think this winter I will get back into it and give it a shot!

    Fresh off my wheel and ready to dry. This might become a sweater for a rabies case due in dec. It looks like fall and i think ok for a boy or a girl.

    Really beautiful work! I crochet , spin and knit, and in a pinch I can sew as well.
    I am envious of your beautiful yarn!

    Thanks! I love spinnin. It took me a bit to get my handspuns like i wanted them. Cause i cannot stand thick and thin yarns. I struggle to get anything thicker than a sport weight though lol! Once in a while i do but it is work to get it for me. My sweet spot is fingering to sport weight. It just depends on the fiber. And i absolutely hate using a spindle while some people love it.

    I am plyin agan today and cannot wait to see it! I pulled the fiber into colors.... pink, white with spots of color, grey.

    We have had real rabies around here lately.... a bat, an owl and hawk. Not on our place but in the area. That is scary!

    I loved this spin. It is not a super soft wool so it will become hat, mitts or socks i think. Our dil and my mama are fightin over who gets the finished thing from it. Hahaha.

    No thanks. No time to crochet. But I bet any finished product you make with it will be lovely.
