Not afraid/ashamed to admit, that it has such a hypnotic effect on me that I have actually fallen asleep while spinning. My head bobbed forward and my eyes popped open only to discover that my feet and hands had never stopped...just the rest of me!
Last weekend, Minerva was a busy girl. We were able to spin and ply a couple of lovelies.
Black Diamond Carbonized Bamboo: final product is just shy of 500 yards of sport/DK weight Navajo plied yarn
Handpainted Bombyx Silk: started with a gorgeous silk hanky purchased at Knitters Nook. Final product is 110 yards of lace/light fingering weight Navajo plied yarn.
Today is an extra special day. It is the Spring Open House Fiber Event AND 2nd Saturday Spin In at Hoosier Heartland Alpacas. If you've got some time for a lovely drive, come out and see them. I'll be there spinning my life away...and oohing and ahhhing at the alpaca beauties!
