Lest you think all I've been doing is crocheting, I wanted to post some pictures of a spinning project I've also got going.
It's Blue-faced Leicester roving hand dyed by frabjous fibers in Vermont. The colorway is Potash. This is the second batch I've spun from frabjous fibers - beautiful colors and spins like a dream. Boy, that link is dangerous. I got a little lost there - but I'm back now.
I'm spinning part of it on my new Fricke spinning wheel.
Since I haven't had time to share some pictures of my wonderful new wheel, here's a view of the whorls. Very industrial, right? I like it.
And that's a view from the front.
And part of the fiber, I'm spinning on my Ashford drop spindle.
