Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
The straw-like fiber called Forest Floor has been spun...
I also plied this...
Jellybeans nice? I love this fiber and the yarn it spun into.
I got lucky. The brake-band on my flyer broke just as I was finishing the last bit of plying Wednesday night. I've decided that plying two nights in a row is too much plying. About 90 minutes each night. It was fun and I think I got pretty good results but there was a physical price to be paid.
My favorite thing about working in my crafty room is being able to listen to great books. While plying I finished listening to Crooked Letter Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin. An excellent story with a good narrator. Next book in line on my iPhone is Saving Ceecee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. The reviews said it was a story like The Help. If it is half as good it should be enjoyable. I'll let you know.
Do you listen to books or music while doing your craft? What is your favorite book genre? I'm always looking for book suggestions so please share your favorites.
I'll be spinning at Urban Mill on Sunday with my friends Paula and Erica but Saturday will be monopolized by parties - family and work. I'll need to go back to work Monday to get some rest, LOL
