go a roving

go a roving, originally uploaded by Sophie_vf.

I barely have room in my closet for more yarn, and I am really, really trying hard to make a dent in my stash. So even on holiday, I have been very good about not buying more yarn - I still have holiday yarn from years ago - from shops that don't even exist anymore!

So, I can't use the "yarn doesn't count if you buy it while on holiday" thing that has come in handy the last several summers.

But hey, roving is not yarn....yet. So, I bought roving at Knitopia Wools, which, unfortunately for me, relocated to my home town, where I visit family each summer. This is superwash blue-faced leicester. I'm trying to spin it a bit thicker than I did the stuff I bought last year (and which I'm industriously knitting up into the lace ribbon scarf) and since it's superwash, I'm hoping to make it into socks.

this looks fabulous - your spinning is so even. it's nice to see what you're doing.

i've been doing some spinning with my spindle and it's uneven - but i'm having fun with it.

and no roving is not yarn. it squishes up smaller too.
