Afternoon Tea Anyone

Lots of wooly stuff on the crafting front. I found some dyed tops called Autumn Flair. It was in my stash so I'm not sure of it's origin but the colors are a perfect match for the change of seasons.

I prepared the fiber by dividing into equal amounts of each color and rolled wool into rolags. To store the sausage shaped rolags I coiled them up.

What does this have to do with afternoon tea I hear you ask?  The dark centers of the circles with strands of grey over the golden colors reminded me of cinnamon scrolls. A childhood memory of a wonderful treat from the bakery. Sitting at the table waiting for the taste of cinnamon and frosting. YUM.
Join me .....

My plan for spinning is to divide the wool into two lots and ply the resulting singles.

Starting with the bright gold and finishing with the warm cinnamon brown each time.

I don't have a project planned but hope the yarn will result in sections of solid color and not just a mash of color. Show and Tell when done.

Weather forcast is warm and sunny. A true Indian Summer weekend with time to enjoy the wonderful warm afternoons.

Enjoy. Terry

Lovely colour for this time of year. I haven't touch any wool this year, but I'm sure I will. Enjoy Indian summer - Hugs Nat

When I was in my teenage years my family would get Cinnamon scrolls on a Saturday morning and we'd all read different parts of the Saturday paper. I haven't had a cinnamon scroll in years, Thanks for reminding me. Your woolly bits are so lovely, such beautiful colours!

Lovely-looking afternoon tea!

It doesn't feel as if winter is around the corner here, either.
