The Countdown Begins

It's now less than a week until Maryland Sheep and Wool 2014. I'm still trying to spin up the fiber I bought at last year's festival, though I've come to grips with the fact that I probably won't get it all done (the CVM is not going to get spun this week, I don't think). On Friday night I pulled out the second half of the natural Jacob fiber -- the lighter portion, and started spinning. This shade, for some reason, is spinning a lot more easily than the darker part.

I finished this first bobbin up in one sitting, and it wasn't even a long sitting (less than two hours, I'd say). I started the second bobbin yesterday afternoon and finished it up this morning.

The third bobbin is now nearly halfway done, and I'm going to attempt to finish it this evening. Then I can ply tomorrow or Tuesday, giving me one last finished skein for the month.

I am toying with the idea of taking my miniSpinner to MDSW, but I think a spindle might be a better bet. I am looking forward to a weekend away and all the knitting and spinning I want!


  1. So excited for Maryland Sheep and Wool! First time I will be going as it's only 45 min from my house!

  2. If it wasn't for the fact that I have already had too many vacations this year I would be flying up for MD Sheep and Wool myself!!!!!! Go crazy for me, will ya?
