There has been some spinning going on at my house today, and soon there will be mating of the yarns. Mountain Color's Targhee Top in Crazy Woman will be mating with Louet Dyed Corriedale in teal when I finally ply them together. I hope the offspring is as beautiful as I imagine it will be. I'm also hoping for at least enough to make a hat, and if I'm lucky, some mittens to match.
I'm having much better luck with a spindle than I seem to be having with the wheel. What I'm hoping for here is that the principles of spinning with a spindle will transfer seamlessly to the wheel the next time I'm behind one. I won't hold my breath.
