Pt. 5: Taking the pictures
The Sandpit

I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it.

I know! I know! I just talked about fiber incessantly for days and here I am again with it. You would think that nothing goes on in this house but the dyeing and the yarn spinning.

And you might actually be right about that.

Anyway, I just got this great new fiber that I'm so very excited about and I've dyed it up and I'm sorry I didn't buy more. Next time I will buy much more.

Because look!

my roving 002

Seriously, I would eat it if I could. Or marry it and have its babies. Do you know how much I hated my editing job? Gosh, did I ever. So. Very. Boring. But this thing? This handspun yarn that takes so much of my time and energy? On days like today when I go downstairs to find this loveliness all dry and ready to spin - it's so very exciting.

As my grandmama would say, Goodness gracious, great day a'livin'!

UPDATE:  I've been toying with the idea of selling my hand-painted roving occasionally, just as I can, no custom orders, and possibly one of a kind. I thought I would start with one of these since they're so pretty. It's in the shop right now.
