weekend spinning. it's always more of a challenge with life obligations. with summer, it's picnic's, graduation party's, festivals, and just finding time to enjoy summer. friday i worked on the ombre roving... every little bit i would make time to sit and spin just a bit more.
i tossed the stash and found this, merino/tencel in 'bermuda'. i can clearly remember buying this at rhinebeck way, way back in 2008 from a vendor -the sheep shed-. i have no idea why i got it, but i'm sure that the reason i didn't spin it was that i was a newbie spinner and i needed to hone those skills. well, honed or not it's on the wheel. the colors are lovely, still bright enough for summer spinning. i'm going very fine with this and mixing all the colors to hopefully get a fingering weight.
yesterday it rained all day. with the limited tent space, i was able to stay home to do house chores. yeah! so, i kept working on the ombre roving.
rhubarb oatmeal squares. these require a bit of effort but are worth it! i was able to use fresh rhubarb (thanks to amytherhubarbgoddess) and my own strawberry jam. the family was very happy to find these for dessert in the evening.
to i'm still slogging through that ombre roving. such is life on the tour....
