Jet stream? Global Warming? Not enough trees? I do know the reason ... but at least I know I can lend a hand.
If you haven't joined Everywun, please do! Everywun is an on-line community trying to make the world a little bit better: one book, one meal, one tree, one animal cared for, at a time. The cool thing is ... it is free! I have learned so much playing their trivia AND reading their newsletters! Isn't it great that we can all be Super Heroes so easily?
In the midst of weather chaos - the sun did manage to pop out briefly on Saturday. (I had heard it was due to one front moving out & another moving in.) I rushed to get the JOYness (Ashford JOY wheel) onto the deck and grabbed a bag of roving. In my haste ... I took one that I had been procrastinating a while over. This wool was full of VM!
What the heck! I was looking for a challenge. Lucky for me, my trusty tweezers were right beside me. Spin & pick. Pick & spin. It went like this for a while, and I am pretty pleased with the results!
I managed to complete 3 skeins. All of which are drying (HA! - in THIS weather?) now. I love the way this cormo/montadale wool has spun up. I can't wait to photograph them.
Should I mention this little sheepie's name is "Escape Artist?" Sigh ....
Yes - everyday is a great day to help save the world AND save the wool!
