Summer Spinning

During the summer months some of the members of the Chilliwack Spinners and Weavers Guild gather together during the day, on a weekly basis, to spin and enjoy each other's company. This week we were in Agassiz spinning in Lynn's beautiful garden.

Lynn has a gazebo that provides some shade even if we end up chasing it around the yard. The shade that is, not the gazebo!

It only looks like Lynn's beautiful dog is about to eat Bunny. He is just watching intently for his favorite toy to be thrown.

In an effort to escape the heat and burning rays of the sun I have backed myself into one corner of the garden where I'm combing and dizzing hand dyed wool in preparation for spinning.

Its nice to see the pictures...looks lovely there. You look great!...are you wearing gloves for a special reason? (I have to ask at least one question don't I? Imagine getting together every week...I can't really. How nice that must be.

Yes Maggie Ann, I wear an old pair of weight training gloves when I am combing wool, especially for extended periods of time. Otherwise the friction causes caluses or blisters on my palms at the base of my fingers. It's much the same sort of abrasion that you get when you are raking leaves.

That looks SO wonderful. What a pretty setting for spinning! I was curious about the gloves, too =)
