Fair weather spinner

Yesterday the sun was shining, the weather was warm and beautiful, a swarm of children were rampaging in the yard. So guess who came out to enjoy it all? First the beast, then the combs, and finally the drop spindle. We had a lot of fun together, although things were a bit rough for the spindle and she got some bruises, until we moved from the concrete to the grass.

And with the final push from a friendly niddy-noddy, a little beastlet was transformed into this little beauty.

Not-so-technical details: an even mixture of Jacob fleece and vegetable matter, spun in a single and immediately knitted into a square, with the only purpose of seeing if I was able to do it and how it would all come out. I LOVE IT!
It is unbelievably soft and airy.

A sweater from a drop spindle does not seem an insane propositon anymore...
Somebody please stop me now.

Cool!

I love how in the picture of The Beast your cat looks like an extension of the beast unless you really look at the picture for a moment.

I'm tempted to get out my drop spindle but there's finishing to be done on deadline... sigh.

Nice work. I especially like the two-toned effect.

You're not going to get talked out of this. You're talking to the wrong crowd entirely. ;-)
