A Little Gulf Coast Native Wool
Here's a little Gulf Coast Native wool top I'm spinning. The yarn will go into a group project done to promote public understanding of handspun.
The past half year, I set out to focus on making useable handspun items for myself and it's laughable how little the stuff I've done meets the criteria. I set this large goal and then consequently got even worse at meeting it.
Not that this is the Gulf Coast wool's fault. Plus, extra spinning is a bonus: I get the fun of turning my spindle and none of the responsibility for making yarn into cloth.
I'm spinning this wool (rather than wool of my own for me) because there is a deadline for turning in the yarn so the project can go on to the next stage. And so it was with the Christmas hat and the card weaving samples: people were expecting them. Maybe it's helpful to think in terms of due dates for deliverables.
