It's a new year, and a new season of Friday's Hunt, hosted by Eden Hills. This week, to start off the new year, our prompts are: Starts with A, Week's Favourite, and Beginning.
Starts with A
I went for a walk in the woods and found some of nature's artwork on display. What does this look like to you? Perhaps an antelope? Or is it just abstract? To be honest, I think it looks a bit like a unicorn, but we have a long way to go before the letter U!
My rabbit, Pippin, is often a favourite photographic subject of mine. This week, he's the star of my favourite pictures. Sometimes he runs around the home office while I'm working and this week, he felt it was necessary to check whether we're sorting the office garbage properly, since he is a strong advocate of proper recycling practice. He hopped into the garbage basket to do an audit (bonus for "starts with A"!), and I managed to take a few quick shots of him during the inspection.
Hmmm...what do we have here?
This is a private audit. Move along now. Nothing to see here!
Very well, you have passed today's inspection.
Every skein of yarn I spin has a beginning, and an end. I showed you, in last week's Friday's Hunt, some blue-faced Leicester that I was in the process of spinning. I finished the spinning, and the yarn is now plied and skeined. Here you can see the yarn, on the tool called a "niddy-noddy" (my talented father made me this beautiful tool!) which helps the spinner wind the yarn from the spinning wheel bobbin into a skein. It also helps me measure how much yardage is in the skein.
So, is this the beginning of the skein, or the end?
Either way, I'm at the beginning of a new year that I hope will be full of the joy of spinning!
