Thick white frost on the grass outside, 6 deg celcius in my kitchen but here by my fireside and my sunny window - bliss. Today I'm spinning real wool with the luxury of pre carded tops that my brother sent to me as a present. Though I enjoy spinning the natural wool straight from the sheep's back, this is much less work and very pleasurable. Plying the yarn comes next and then dying it. Haven't decided what colour yet. Something to look forward to. The last lot was this rather vibrant green, I think I'm over that. Toddling down the yard to feed the magpies this morning in my jammies and slippers was a chilly experience. Those birds really have very good staff. The man of the house says I need my head examined. Hope you're warm and comfy wherever you are. Bye for now until next time. PS the towell under the spinning wheel is to protect the carpet from grease when I oil the wheel.
