What's on the bobbin

Someone on my fiber list asked what we had on our bobbins.  I'm spinning a fleece from a corriedale sheep named Peaches. I can't remember whether she was a Coneflower Farm or a Whitefish Bay Farm sheep. I think she was from Martha at Coneflower, who sadly has stopped selling fleece.

I'm spinning it rather finely so I can use it in weaving scarves. However, the other night I started a gauge swatch to try to make some socks from it.

Edited on 2/22/11 to add link for WFB Farm and clarify Coneflower Farm's status.

Beautiful! It's so nice to have faces to put with names, isn't it? I haven't managed to learn to weave yet, though I have a small loom I got to try to learn, but I need someone to show me how.

I'll try to get my bobbins up on my blog. Technology can be as much of a pain in the ass as it is a blessing, no? =]
