My friend Marcela came round for coffee today and I taught her to spin! She was remarkably quick on the uptake. I started her on a spindle and then she had a go on the wheel. A new experience for her - and for me as a first-time spinning teacher!
Mrs B. has been quiet today. I think the little Bs must have all flown. One of the was sitting in the honeysuckle under the nest for the whole of yesterday afternoon, being fed with titbits by Mrs and Mr B. I think there must have been more than one baby, but no sign of any of them today. I miss the squawking, which has been quite a feature of the last week or two.
I'm engaged on another dye-card-spin project. This time I took some brown merino top and am going to turn it into a 2-ply roughly-dk weight. I have about 200g.
