Spinning!

DSC04225
I sat down this weekend and got some spinning done. Caleb even wandered in and commented on how long it's been since I've spun and he told me he missed me spinning! He likes to come in and curl up on the floor with a blanket and read or just lay there and talk to me while I spin. He told me once, when he was little, that he liked the quiet sound of the spinning wheel going around and around. I think he still enjoys listening to it.

This (on the left) is the second bobbin of the Kiwi colored Border Leicestershire Lambswool and Kid Mohair. I'll spin a total of three bobbins of singles and I'm aiming for a fingering weight finished yarn. I think this second bobbin went faster than the first bobbin, but I've never actually timed myself to see how long it takes to spin a bobbin. I've started the third bobbin and with Caleb's encouragement, I'm sure I'll get it spun up pretty quickly. I may have to see if he's interested in learning to spin - he's definitely big enough (to reach everything) now. Or he may just enjoy laying on the floor listening to the soft whooshing sounds the spinning wheels make...

Something else happened this weekend: Finn turned 4 on Saturday! He was happy. (He's really always happy, but he does enjoy it when we sing to him. That's even more happy!)

Happy Birthday Finn! I'm waiting on new bobbins before I spin again but it's starting to drive me crazy so I might have to spin something smaller.

Happy B-day to Finn. Our dog turned 4 on June 1. I am learning to spin and am in awe of experienced spinners.
