Felicia's Notebook, Spinning, Taking Back Friday

Spinning Rolags

So, today I wanted to pick up where we earlier left off. In a previous video, I talk about the rolags I made following our Blending Boards: From Rolags to Roving course at the School of SweetGeorgia. These are the first rolags I’ve ever made on a blending board, and today I want to show the next step of spinning them up.

Join me at today’s Taking Back Friday vlog as I spin these rolags using long draw on the beautiful Lendrum Saxony wheel. This is not the wheel I typically spin on as it’s always here, safely enclosed, in my attic space, but when I do get a chance to come up and spin on it, it’s the best thing ever.

Thank you for joining me here at today’s vlog – we’re here every Friday with a new video sharing something that makes us happy. We’ll see you in the next one!
