Now that I have the pound of grey Targhee/
Corriedale spun, I've begun to spin the black Corriedale, also from Black Sheep Gathering. It might be too optimistic, but I'm hoping that by weaving with handspun, I can finally make a dent in my out-of-control fiber stash.
The bobbin and the fiber in this basket are a pound. I figure two pounds, including the grey, is more than generous but I'd like my next lap robe to be a little longer and a little wider than the last one. Anything left over can become a hat. Leftovers are good, running out is bad.
I've decided to take a little break since I've been spinning to task for the last month. I bought this from Mim in September at our guild retreat. I get weak at the knees when I see her hand-dyed rovings and I plan to pair this with green. We're weeks away from our guild Christmas party. She always brings roving for sale, and I know for a fact that I'm going to buy more. This is my rationale. I must spin what I already bought so it will be okay for me to buy some more. Or something like that.
