It was so pretty today that I decided to spend the afternoon on the deck and finish spinning up this roving. It would have been the perfect opportunity to wind a new warp, but it's been so cold and gray, I just couldn't make me stay inside.
The bobbins didn't end up exactly even and I had expected a little more display of color from the lighter roving since they are both from the same dyes.
Plied up, the yarn takes on a pastel quality. It may look a little different after its fulled, but I doubt it. I'll do that tomorrow morning so I can wind the balls in the afternoon. I'd really like to get this into the mail to DSD Shazzy Monday or Tuesday morning so I get back to spinning for natural dyes. I am viewing this project as an interlude.
There wasn't a cloud in the sky. These aren't clouds, they're jet contrails and because it was so clear and still up there, they took a long time to dissipate. It was only in the mid 50s this afternoon but in the absence of wind, it was quite comfortable on the deck.
A day like this makes me aware of just how much air traffic crosses over us. I am curious if all of these are going to or coming from Reno.
