Spinning fancy yarn!
I recently finished spinning this "fancy" yarn. It is 8oz. of dyed coopworth wool & a strand of gold sewing/quilting thread. You can click on the photo to take a closer look, if you want. I am rather pleased with the way it turned out. I bought the coopworth from Leslie of Greenberry House, Meadows of Dan, VA when I was at the sheep shearing day at Tazwell, VA in April. I try to spin a little every evening, when the work for the day is done and I can listen to a classical music program on NPR called "Performance Today". Sometimes I listen to Celtic music or some of the Japanese CD's my daughter sent me when she was living in Japan.
My daughter's other cat, named Grace, will be tested for FIV & leukemia today. We are praying that she did not catch anything from poor Ace. A progress report...I am almost through piecing the Yellow Brick Road blocks (bought the pattern in 2002). Photo when finished.
