Thursdays are for Spinners

 This Thursday morning was spent sipping coffee and knitting wraps from handspun wool I had spun in the past.  Its interesting to see how the thread weights change depending on my mood.  This pale aqua and violet-teal-orange mix was spun late at night when I was tired.  It is chunky and erratic, which is how I was feeling at the time.
The wool for this wrap was spun slowly, carefully while I concentrated on my treadle speed.  It had much more of a regular twist and a much more relaxed feel to the wool.

There is a crispness in the air.  Crunchy leaves are under foot.  Slouch beanies are warming heads.
