Yarn Roving Pr0n Friday the 10th 1st!

I got the most wonderful R.A.K. yesterday. I've been spending more time in chat lately, and lamenting that I couldn't find any roving around her to learn how to spin on. I wasn't sure what to look for online, and didn't want to get anything too extravagent for my first attempts with the drop spindle. The fabulous spinndiva (or just "spin" to the chatters) offered to send me a bit of Corridale Top to learn on. Great. Fab. Wonderful. Well, she didn't send me Corridale. She sent me a giant heap of Swaledale Roving! I have no idea what that means, but it's gorgeous and I had fun taking pics of it for today's pr0n. So, without further ado, the first Roving Pr0n Friday! Thank you, spin! Swaledale Roving 8 Swaledale Roving 12 Swaledale Roving 10 Swaledale Roving 9 Swaledale Roving 7 And a little gift tucked inside as well. A WPI tool! Wraps Per Inch Tool The entire photoshoot can be seen in the Flickr Set. Please check it all out.

You are that much closer to getting a pet sheep. Yummy shots--really tactile which is a fancy way of saying I want to dig my fingers into that roving and squeeze!

When I read "Roving Porn" I thought at first you were taking your pRon shots out into open public! Ha ha!

Can't wait to see how it turns out. I need to dust off my spindle and become more proficient at handspinning myself--I'll need inspiriation! Get to it! Ha ha!
