The weekend can really fly by…. We had a fine one here, with a trip to the library,
a nice visit to a (still to to us) park,
and a great afternoon with good friends, friends who are really good at feeding people.
I made some decent progress in my current spinning project, which is about 13 ounces (if I remember correctly) of Rambouillet. It’s the most rustic roving I’ve ever spun. It’s so full of vegetable matter that I don’t even stop to pick all of it out or I’d never finish. The singles are turning out mostly fingering weight, which is my default weight for spinning, but there’s a lot more thick/thin than I generally spin. It’s fine with me, part of the fun in spinning is making original yarn, stuff you don’t find in stores. I don’t know what I’ll do with such a huge amount. My idea was to stripe it up and make a cardigan, but I don’t know if I want such a rustic sweater! So we’ll see. Maybe it’ll ply nicely and fluff up to some gorgeousness when I wash it. Who knows….?
