BOW BEFORE ME!
Well, not really. Y’all don’t have to do that. I’m just being silly.
But! I have washed like 10-12 lbs. of (local) alpaca today and dyed it and a bunch of domestic wool, silk, merino, and mohair today.
I may not have gotten my studio cleaned today, but I did do this…basically, so I had more stuff to spin.
Which means, I’m going to have to card all of this first.
…I’m never going to get the black to come our right. *is sad*
Mind you, this was about 10 minutes before I managed to face-plant into the (mostly) empty vat and bruised the hell outta myself. I’m graceful, I am.
Never let it be said that artists don’t sacrifice for (to) their art. Art gets pissy if it isn’t sacrificed to on the regular.
I’m totally not joking.
Oh! I classed on Saturday, and it was the largest class I’ve had yet: eight people. I even sold some yarn.
So, if y’all wanna know the super-basics of drop-spindle making, here’s vidlet.
I love drop spindles. They’re totally physics in action!
quiet set-up before the storm class.
Okay, I’m gonna go and tend to my various bruises by flumping somewhere comfortable.
