Fiber Update

All this cria and belly watching has given me plenty of excuses to sit outside on the deck and spin some yarn. I have a great view of the alpacas, and I get to play with fiber.

This past weekend I spun some of Tucker's fiber into yarn.

Here I am drafting:

And here is a strand of Tucker's fiber as yarn:

I plan to ply this light silver grey with a strand of the dark silver grey I spun up a week ago.  This will make a small skein of contrasting yarn for a neat knit project.

This has become my favorite place:

Your bobbin looks beautiful. I like how Tucker is spinning up. We just about have our pool opened which means my wheel will be with me while the kids swim and the Alpacas graze in the pasture nearby. I love summer spinning.
