You Spin Me Right 'Round

Like a drop spindle, baby!  Yes, completely cheesy I know, but I just couldn't resist.

Yesterday, a group of women gathered at the Riverwalk to spin.  I was one of those women.  Of course, nobody thought to take pictures during the actual spinning get-together, but that was when I realized that my roving matched my shorts!!  My friend Erin came back to my house later to watch movies so I snapped some pictures then.  How funny they match, and I didn't even plan it!

I've actually been spinning this roving since I learned how to spin in 2008.  I think I made a lot of progress now and should have the rest of the 2 ounces spun in the next week or so if I keep spinning on a regular basis.

Speaking of spinning, I think I am totally going to do the 2010 Tour de Fleece!  I'm not sure what my goal will be other than to spin every day.  I have 4 ounces each of two other colorways in this same gorgeous merino roving I've been spinning, and I think I might spin all of one of those...

Thoughts?  Anybody else want to spin the Tour de Fleece?
