It was so beautiful in the WI Northwoods today I just had to take my spinning wheel, chair, and basket of roving out onto the lakeside porch, this afternoon, and sit and spin. With only the peaceful sounds of nature, the breeze blowing through the pines, birds, crickets, a pileated woodpecker flitting around the nearby trees, and manmade sounds, my windchime and the whir of my spinning wheel, it was a pleasure to spin more of the Coopworth roving I brought home two years ago from the WI Sheep & Wool Festival.
The Coopworth roving is spinning up beautifully, and I’m wishing I’d brought more home this year. I plan to make this 2-ply for some winter knitting.
When I look up, this is the view of our little lake, with a bit of autumn color in the trees across the way.
Meanwhile, back at the woodshed, I heard a crash the night before I left for southern WI. As I drove out I found “someone” had been in the woodshed, and knocked over a good portion of the front row of split wood! Weasel? Raccoon? No clue, just hope it doesn’t happen again. Tomorrow? I’ll be stacking wood before splitting anymore.
