She spins too

I'm taking a spinning class in--uh oh--less than three weeks and while you don't have to be an incredible spinner, you do need to know how to spin a constant thread. And while I do know this, I haven't done it for a year.

And as you may recall, I have three or four alpacas worth of fleece to prepare and spin.

So I sat down, oiled the wheel, figured out how it all works, and started spinning with some purple roving that is sitting at the bottom of the closet.

Like riding a bike, spinning comes back pretty quickly. At least I think it did--the spun single looks good, and I'll try to do another single and ply this weekend.

Juneau is maintaining her current health state, and probably improved a bit since Tuesday. Her fever is back down to normal and her appetite is great. She's a tad slower on the walks but still eager to get outside. Our first 'post relapse' bloodwork is next Tuesday so we'll see how she's doing clinically then.

Hoping for a good prognosis for Juneau.

Wish they had been able to ID the virus for this in dog's as well as cats, and created a vaccine for dogs. :(

The spinning looks very good. Soon you will have a nicely balance blue yarn to spin.
