Exploring the world of fiber, one draft at a time

My posting can be as frequent or infrequent as my spinning, so be as patient as that fiber, sitting in my stash.

I finished the spinning on the Romney/silk roving that is to be a hat for hubby. I had a pound of roving, and so far have a total of 370 yards of a two ply yarn, and used 12 1/2 oz of the roving. The color is a light apple green with flecks of white silk. There is a definate sheen to the yarn, although it is moderately soft in feel, even after washing.

I do not know how this 'blogging' will work, I had to leave the computer three times just to get the above information :)

My current spinning project is a forest green heather wool top, that I am spinning into very thick yarn. The sheen is unbelieveable. I have no plans for this yarn, except to try and sell it.

I am considering buying some mini wool combs. I have the large Viking 5 pitch combs, and really love them, but find the are NOT at all portable. So I would like something small to use as I sit as my spinning wheel.
