Alexus, supported spindle IS a real spindle!!  Looks great!

Bella, I love, love, love corriedale.  Hope you have enough for a squishy cowl.  Just beautifully spun!

No spinning for me for a while.  I broke my fibula and ankle (actually, the tibia was totally separated from the talus) at the end of December.  Two surgeries, an external fixator and splints later, I'll finally be ready for cast on Monday.

Bonus:  when time comes for PT in a couple months, I'm betting spinning will be high on the list of good things to do!

Gorgeous, beautiful, loverly!!

I'm out of the spinning department for a few months .... broke my ankle pretty badly, should have lost the foot, but I have plenty of yarn stashed and knitting to do.

Jexxi, I can see why he wants a scarf like that!  You might want to do a final rinse using unscented conditioner though.

Bella, loving on that yarn.

I really like the English Shepherd breed.  They are so smart and learn so quickly!  Bonus is they have a nice crimp in their undercoat and it is wonderful to spin!!!

I have just a little bit on the bobbin this week.  Went to spin some more and discovered my new English Shepherd puppy chewed the drive band in two!

He's adorable though ...

Loving the alpaca locks ... I'm a real sucker for crimp!  Thunder & lightening looks mah-va-lous!!

niks ... perfect name for that skein!!!  it's almost edible!!

rovings/bits/tails/et al from SS ... I always open it up before dyeing and then again after dyeing (while it is still wet).  Got that hint from Carol Lee.  So much of what she sells has been compressed for so long, that it needs to be opened up and allow to breathe a day or so before doing anything else with it.

No photos of spinning this week.  I spent my time at the homestead of very good friends a couple of hours away.  They are completely off grid, although will generate their own power once a week for the Speed Queen washer and sometimes in the evening for a movie using a gas generator ran off one of their tractors. (in the works is a water fed generator!!)   Their small fridge/freezer is powered by propane.  No piped water into the house, although they have a couple of wonderful artisian springs on their place.  Best tasting water ever!!  It is my home away from home and a place I can truly get away from it all.

I visited other friends in the area and made a new friend who wanted to learn to spin ... even though I hadn't brought any of my spinning tools with me, I borrowed a wheel from one of my friends down there and carded fiber (ready to spin) plus hand cards & washed fiber from another friend and went about my 'DUTY' of the NW IL Fiber Enabler (although now I have to extend it to Central IL Fiber Enabler!!) It went something like this:  Ms D introduced me to Ms S.  Ms S wanted to learn to spin, so I borrowed a wheel from Ms J and fiber from Mr T and went with Ms D over to Ms S (who is also totally off grid!) & taught her how to spin ... then watched her spin up at least 50 - 80  yards of some real nice rambouliet (sp?)

My student spinning after just 20 minutes of my tutelage:
