So after two days of bedrest with bad TV, uninteresting books and lots of surfing, I was going a little crazy. I tried to knit but it was too hard, and weaving is obviously out. Then I thought to get the electric miniSpinner Tom got me for Christmas. It works great even when I am flat on my back. So with football or baseball on I have been a spinning fool. I filled up two large bobbins with the fiber above. It is a dyed Merino and silk mix I bought at the Black Sheep Gathering. Next I will ply the two bobbins.
Then I spun this funky fiber I got at Black Sheep. It has ribbons, golden strands and dyed locks of mohair in it. The yarn is quite lumpy bumpy. I Navajo plied it which was challenging and below it is on the skein winder.
