The hobby/craft/fiber room was getting a little messy with stuff all over the floor. So we headed back to Ikea for another Billy Bookcase. Buying a spinning wheel = bags of roving all over the place.
Much nicer now. We may move wall units right and slide the table on the left side. This is where the winder and swift reside. This would let me spin in front of a south facing window or read with some music playing. Hard to believe that we drove to Ikea, came home, assembled the unit, and re-arranged the fiber and roving in just a few hours.
Top shelf is dyed roving. Corriedale, Silk, Merino/Silk, Falkland, Merino/Tencel, and Romney.

This was out latest purchase. A little mid day excursion to Purl Soho Wednesday and this was just begging to come home. It's sock yarn so it's ok. Fannies Fingering weight by Farmhouse yarns. The softest merino nylon sock yarn we have ever felt.
On a knitting note Mrs. Twisted finished the Lily of the Vally socks in Colinette Jitterbug colorway Marble.
I'm making slow progress on my Malabrigo Vee-Neck sweater but not far enough to justify a picture yet.
Men's knitting Group on Friday night and Spinning Guild Saturday Morning.
Life is good.
