A New Haven

I'm spending some time at CampKIP this weekend and I took a little excursion to check on the river. Thankfully everything seems in order. I checked out the John Colter Memorial and enjoyed the view for a bit and now I'm back at camp and playing with fiber.

I spent most of the past couple of weekends spinning some lovely 100% superwash English 56's wool.

I love the colors and the long color lengths in the singles. I think I decided this roughly in half so I'm hoping the colors somewhat line up and give me some nice long repeats in the final product.
