Just hangin'

I've been a busy wee weasel since reorganising my workspace, and I've had another shift of equipment around my desk to allow for my sewing machine. 
Lately, I've been spinning some Icelandic wool after purchasing some yarn I used for a giant scarf. I figured that spinning a chunky single yarn wouldn't be too time consuming. Right now it is drying (along with a build up of other skeins I've been meaning to set the twist in). Last night my bathroom smelt like a sheep had been bathing in it!

Icelandic wool has very long fibres and it makes for a strong durable yarn. You can see how fuzzy it is!:

I have a selection of Icelandic yarn, along with the other merino/silk blends I make on Etsy...HERE
