You know what they say about rabbits

I think its happening with the Opalessence roving. Yesterday I decided to time myself as I spun on it and after 4 1/2 hours (not uninterrupted, but I didn't time the interruptions either) of spinning, I barely finished the second ounce of roving. I still have one more ounce to go before I finish this second bobbin and I can move on to something else. The only thing I can figure out is that maybe the Angora in the blend is doing what bunnies do best, and making more faster than I can spin. I mean I realize that spinning anything this fine is going to take a while, but I'm pretty sure the pile of unspun roving in my lap was actually getting bigger. I think this week I'm going to try to spin on the Opalessence for at least 1 hour a day and I also really need to get the pattern for Mindy's Stole written up, so I'm going to be working on that. I might have to let Finn and Ramius blog some this week.

Yes it does take a long long time to spin lace weight - After about 20 hour on my first bobbin of my recent spinning adventure - I stopped counting. I couldn't believe it was true. But it was! One thing is for sure, the end result is stunning! It is so worth it. Your spinning this Opalescence is gorgeous!

That laceweight is coming out beautifully! Am looking forward to seeing the final product.

The comment about rabbits is really funny. I'm sure it feels like it is multipling.

I've never thought that spinning can be exciting! But now I want to try it.
