Red Rock

Here's what I'm spinning as I speak with my friend D on the phone.
It's a hand dyed silk-wool top from Fibreworks. I chose it from the Handweavers and Spinners Guild craft supply a few months ago. It's a delicious 50-50 blend of silk and fine merino. The colour is called "red rock"--a real Australian outback type of ochre colour--selected mainly as a change from my usual cool blue-greens. It has no particular destiny so far, but you can see I'm spinning it quite finely as it deserves. Sitting spinning and chatting are a good combination. Having my friend in the room rather than on the other end of the phone at the opposite end of the country and being able to share a coffee would only improve the situation.
