I'm spinning.

I am working on a new piece called "the new do".  I think i posted a sketch a while back. In summery, the birds sheer a sheep and make aristocratic wigs for themselves from the wool.

I needed a specific color and style for my "wigs" so I decided it wa worth making it myself. I haven't spun in years and even then didn't do it much. It took me a bit to recall the process. ( I must take time to include a shout out to the undergrad that just happened to be in the room and helped me out a bit) i was lucky enough the store (Wild Fiber) had the perfect colors i could mix. the product is chunky and uneaven but it will be perfect.
