To Market, To Market

Off I go to the farmers' market to demonstrate handspinning.

I was thinking of bringing an attention-getting pink wool, but merino felts instead of drafting in hot weather.

Probably a slick fiber like Blue Face Leicester wool or silk would be suitable, but instead I am going to choose a crunchy local wool roving to bring along.

This local wool is what I'm working on at the moment.  I am spinning it at a fast pace without worrying too much about consistency, so whatever I spin while distracted and talking to people will match what I've already got.

If you were wondering what I've been occupied with when I should be working on something handspun to wear to the upcoming festival, this local wool is the culprit.
