I spent a good chunk of today sitting on my front porch with Maddy, my spinning wheel. It was a gorgeous day and I wanted to be outside…but I also wanted to spin, so I did both.
It got me a few looks as vehicles passed by and my neighbour paused at one point to ask if “that thing really works?” to which I said “Uh huh.”
I forget sometimes how odd spinning seems to those who know nothing about it.
So, I sat on my porch and started working with a heathered red 100% wool roving. A good amount of time was spent fussing with the tension as the darn yarn kept breaking as though I hadn’t spun it enough to give it strength.
It is my opinion that you should not have been working or been otherwise occupied…you should have been in Orangeville, Ontario to see the amazingly cute and squishy alpacas at the 14th Annual Alpaca Spring Show!
I went with two friends and we had a fantastic time!
I’m not a “squeee!” kind of girl…but I freely admit that alpacas bring me close to squee-ing. I have no words for how darn cute and cuddly they are.
Just look at that face!
Look at it!
I just can’t express how adorable I find these creatures.
I have always thought they were pretty darn awesome and then today…. I heard a number of them communicating by humming low and soft! So endearing!
