Spunday: the Struggle

Happy Spunday!

This week has been crazy busy… like collapsing in bed as soon as you’ve finished the to-do list. Pair that with spinning struggles, that makes for a measly amount done on the spun-front.

This week I was ables to start my Unicorn roving…

As you can see there’s barely any there. I’ve been having a ton of trouble drafting it… I’ve never spun alpaca before, so is this a character trait? Does it draft differently than sheep’s wool? I would love some help with this!

In the meantime, thanks to its portability, I’ve had some great advancements on my knitting.

This is a Ribbed Beanie for a friend that is being made out my Shetland from last week. I’m loving how its turning out but I love how much I love working with homespun!

So now its your turn! What’s on your wheel?

Remember the party continues on Instagram #spundays and @threadybear!
Keep spreading the word!!

And because civilization would collapse without rules, here are the Spunday Laws:
1.) Link up to any specific post dealing with anything homespun.
2.) Somewhere in your post please link back to my blog.
3.) Try to comment on one other link to spread the love!
