Spinning for a Break

Inspired by Dave, who seems to predraft all of bump of roving before spinning it, I decided to finish up the first bump, designated to become Mike's next sweater.Little Squid is there to give you a sense of perspective. Most of that predrafted fluff spun up into this:

and these.
Around 8:30 I decided to stop for the night so there is still some unspun. I'll take care of that today so that Maria doesn't have loose roving around to deal with. Then I'll do some plying and predraft the other bump.

Now, however, a little spin on my bike ...

Woo! You're doing great with the spinning. Will there be plying also?

Oh that looks so soft! You've gotten a lot done too!

Don't you love how fast you can spin, without having to worry about stopping to prepare more? I love doing that/ it's a bit of work in advance, and the benefits are SO great later. I don't like to be interrupted when I'm spinning. :) That's some good spinning already.
