Long distance spin-in

For the last 5 months (I just counted that out in my head & I'm horrified!) I've been slowly (you're not kidding!) working my way through a kilo of white roving. It does have the odd fleck of colour through it, but it's soooo boring ...

On Wednesday, I received a lovely email from my lovely friend Textile Teresa. She said she had a portion of a fibre sandwich from Harrietville for me! When I arrived home from spinning group today, guess what was waiting for me?

It usually takes Australia Post a good 4 working days to get anything from Melbourne (Vic) to Lismore (NSW) so imagine my surprise & joy to get this so quickly!
Mmmm ... colours ... Mmmm ... different fibres ...
Mmmm ... it's not white!

I think I can feel my spinning mojo returning - I just have to spin this!

Now that we each have a portion, the idea is that we each spin our bit up, & pop it onto our blogs. Thanks Teresa!

Stay tuned!

  1. Great! I can't imagine persisting with a kilo of white--that's what dye pots are for!!!
