My first hand dyed roving!


My first hand dyed roving!

Originally uploaded by ThePaintedTiger

Yup, I stuck my hand in a whole huge can O’worms this time….yarn just wasn’t enough, I had to dye roving, too. Next I suppose I’ll have to buy a wheel and spin it. Hubby will be so pleased for me to have another hobby that requires expensive equipment…*grin*.

I have my eye on that Louet Hatbox spinning wheel. It is so cute, and the wheel is protected when closed (a must for our home if I want to leave the wheel out). I imagine myself spinning at the park while the children play, and all the moms will be fascinated by the wheel and the spinning. Or I can start selling my yarn at craft shows and attract customers with the spinning (hubby is pushing for me to do Art in the Park, but the Iowa Sheel & Wool Festival is the same weekend…. we’ll see what wins!)  I know, I know, these fantasies won’t play out, but it is nice for a girl to dream.

Anyway, I’ll post this bit of fluff in the shop tomorrow, along with this week’s yarns and rovings, tune in there, or stop by the blog again for Fiber Friday!
