Sneak Peek

Gah, I REALLY want to expose these--they turned out so well!

But for now all you get is little snippets.




I also realized that I've had my wheel for exactly one year this week.

I'll be honest, I still don't know shit about spinning.

I can't tell you what a long draw is, spinning from the fold, what skirting a fleece involves, or what the micron count of merino is...


But I can spin with a squirmy Moochie on my lap!

I'm terrible at guessing, so I won't even try. But the button/flower detail on whatever the second picture is really pretty.

Moochie looks a little concerned about what you're doing. LOL

I don't know anything about spinning either, but I think you're quite talented to be able to do it while a little one watches from your lap!

Nice waffling! Alas, I don't spend much time worrying about spinning technique, underwear, or toenails. I must be one of *those* people.

Do you think that our foremothers did that? Spun with a child on her lap? Do you think that was the early way to teach the child a trade? Just a few ???'s
Can't wait to see those things! I like the flower.
Love, Mom

Whatever the knit is, it looks likeit will be super cute! And at least you are getting spinning timein. Somehow, I can't find time. Of course, the Neverending Noragi might have something to do with it...

(Started to write a small novel and thought better of it.)

I'm amazed you can spin with the Bebeh on your lap. That takes awesome skills and a mellow baby.

Spinning - it's like baby crack but not.

Is that a fin in the top one? Maybe omething dolphin-y?

love the spinning pic. as long as you are happy with the yarn that you're producing, i say go with the flow.

and believe me, you don't want to skirt a fleece unless it just came off your own animal. i'll take my fleeces pre-skirted, thank you very much. (i found some poo bits on my romney fleece and it was pretty gross)

I can't believe how big he's gotten, and so fast. Seems like just yesterday. And, to think I was gonna ask you if you wanted me to make you a sling.

I think that Moochie's doing the spinning and you're just covering his hand so we wont discover the truth.

And my guess is that your sneak peek is a dolphin wearing a sweater with flowers on it.

You don't need to know all that stuff to spin. Looks like you have the importatn part down pat! Moochie looks more like Chunky every day!

Hell I don't know any of that stuff either and I've had wheels going on 2 years now! Heck though, I gotta give it up to you for being able to spin with Moochie on your lap!
