Saturday June 30th, we held our first Spinning lessons, Lou Ann gave us a quick look at that on July first. In one of the photos you can see my eldest daughter working hard.
She is back on the swing dressed in teal. She really enjoyed the morning, and ended up taking my electric spinner home that next week. I also gave her some white shetland roving that she dyed with food coloring.
Last Tuesday, while I was at the center with the Weavers, I received a text from her with a picture.
After we finished up, we went upstairs to "shop in mom's stash". She took home 4 ounces of some Moorit Shetland I use to teach spinning, I have a lot of it! She spins at least 15 minutes a day, and is feeling better about it all the time.
She told me that when she washed the skein at home, she had to change the water at least 3 times before the excess dye was gone. The colors are still vibrant, just toned down a smidge. So there you have it! I have someone else in the family as crazy as I am! We may get through those 15 fleeces after all!
Until next time, Happy Weaving and Spinning, Tina
