A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

I had my second Beyond Beginner spinning class last night. It was much better. No talking, straight to work. We spent a little while working on Navajo plying. It was good to work on this with the instructor and it will be very helpful for plying all of our class samples. I remembered to bring my camera to class but forgot to take any pictures. When I got home I also realized that the camera battery was in the charger.

Here's my first little Navajo-plied skein with the combed Corriedale top we spun last week.

The top photo shows my rolags of handcarded Romney. The second are my batts of Shetland made on the drum carder.

The last shows everything else I need to do for next week. There's Lincoln cross and a different Romney that I flick carded when I got home. There's Romney X that I'll comb in class next week. And there's CVM(!) that the instructor gave us at the last minute. I have no idea what I'll do with it.
