Mojave Merino

Mojave_merino

During the past week I’ve been diligently spinning Mojave merino roving into sport-weight yarn. Yes this is another attempt to master spinning so that I can have enough confidence to finally start working on the fiber for the Spin-Off sweater. I’ve had the kit for almost a year now but have been afraid to start.  Hopefully I’ve built up enough tactile memory in my fingers so that it becomes second nature. While I know that handspun yarn doesn’t have to look perfect, I just can’t help trying.

I forsee doing a lot of spinning during the next four years. It has truely become my primary form of meditation during difficult times.
