Lots of spinning

About a month ago, Riv was at a craft show. In addition to her shiny jewelry, she also took along a bunch of my yarn and roving to sell. And my business cards came a few days before the show, so I gave a bunch of those to her as well.

Unfortunately, no one bought any of my stuff, but some people took my business card, and one person was interested in commissioning me to spin up some of my rovings.

So I contacted the woman who was interested in the yarn a few days later, and she commissioned me to spin up three rovings.

Peacock Feathers:

More Leaves:

and Jewels:

I think Jewels was my favorite, and it was really nice to be able to spin with it.

So now they are pretty yarn. Huzzah!

I still have more things to spin! And my last dyeing session had some felted rovings, so in order to salvage them I might spin them myself and sell the yarn, since the yarn will be fine (though the spinning will be annoying). Or maybe I'll give it all away to my friends who are spinners. There are only 4 of them, so it's not so bad.
