This past week was busy! Just errand type stuff. We also had a lot of surprise guests who we haven't seen in a long time. I had a blast visiting with them all. I think everyone's trying to break this cabin fever feeling all ready even though the weather hasn't been the greatest.

I've also got the urge to spin more wool. I just got done doing a ton of lace weight alpaca for my aunt. I've got a variety of different roving all dyed up and ready to go. I dyed this up to list in my Etsy shop but it hasn't made it there yet:
I'm thinking it would be perfect spun up for some fun socks? I kind of already have it playing out in my head the way I want to ply the colors and match it all up. We'll see if I can resist and get it listed or if it ends up on my wheel.
I'm also in a conundrum over a peachish colored roving I dyed up. I recently did my first felted cobweb lace scarf. I loved how I could manipulate the wool for extra texture. I think the felted scarves that are all symmetrical with clean edges are pretty but the funky textured ones make my heart go pitter patter. There's something about them that makes me want to have one in every color for every occasion. So long story short, I'm thinking about using the peach roving I dyed for a cobweb scarf. It's such a pretty spring color that will add a nice pop of color to any outfit.
Too many decisions. The only thing I want to do is wash up some wool to empty out one bin and fill another back up but it's too cold. Please hurry 60 degree weather this weekend!
