I've spun half of Mim's roving, using the tech-nique that Sara suggested in her January 6th post. At least I tried to follow her instructions. I'm don't think my color runs are as successful as hers. I'm going to spin the other 2 ounces, deliberately mixing the colors and then I'll use both in hats to see if I like one method better than the other.
This is now I spent some of my afternoon. I had to fix some errors and in the end, ran out of steam. I had to hoped to finish the threading. I need to weave more often so my back doesn't tired as quickly.
I've started doing some exercises that our potter neighbor showed me. He says he's always working in front of him so the muscles in his back doesn't develop at the same rate and leave him vulnerable to injury. I figure that applies to what I do as well.
This is my view from where I'm sitting behind my loom. A month ago retirement hadn't even entered my vocabulary and now I think about it every day.
Charlie is bird-
watching. I think he's dreaming big.
