april the 7th


i played a bit on the pc ( a long bit actually)
then i dived into my locks - click on more to see my treasures
digged out my white wenslaydale locks, digged a bit more for the kool aid i got a few weeks back
and gave it a try
my camera HATES HATES HATES all with the slightest bit of red in it … so its impossible to show the real colours ! :(

first foto - still wet - at night - in the kitchen
2nd foto - dry and inside at good light


first foto - outside in the shadow
2nd foto - edited with gimp - thats closing in to the right colours - but much brighter and shinier :(


then i combed a few balls of wool and knitted half a repeat while watching tv


and then some spinning
this time some black alpaka, i am not sure if it is now or if it isnt baby alpaka quality …
and its not a lot - just 59 gram - divided onto 4 bobbins - makes it 15 grams each
and i spun 2 :D
no sleep again
