Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You Any Wool????
Yes Sir, Yes Sir, THREE Bobbins FULL!!!!
Now comes the FUN part.....according to Elizabeth I have a few more steps before I start knitting. Seems I have to soak the yarn and then "whack it".....now I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not but for some reason whacking the crap out of skeins of wet yarn appeals to me!!! LOL!!! Major Stress Buster???? LOL!!!
This is some pencil roving that I bought in Huntsville to be used with a drop spindle. I wasn't able to get the hang of the drop spindle and decided to put it aside until I could get some help. I completely forgot about this until I was "digging" for something else and came across it!! Don't you just love when you find things you forgot you had??? Once I get this off the bobbins I can move on.............
To Spinning THIS!!!!!! Blue Faced Leicester roving!!! This is SOOOOO soft!!! Hand dyed by Elizabeth herself!!! I can't WAIT to get this spun!!!!!!
