Wall o’ Roving or Wool As Art

You know how some people put up canned veggies for the winter? How squirrels stockpile nuts?

Feast your eyes upon this.

A dowel rod, a set of cheap aluminum shower curtain links, and three screw-in ceiling hooks are all the hardware – the “soft wares” are my entire collection of roving, (well, except for the alpaca, which proved too soft and loose to hang safely,) which I spent a couple hours happily braiding a la Fleece Artist.

I ran a length of cotton yarn through the top loop of the braid, and hung them on the shower curtain hooks. Voila! Wool As Art!

I’m actually a litte surprised at how much I’ve collected during the six months I’ve been spinning. I’m going to have a busy winter!

And the best part? It’s a direct view from the sofa, so I can admire my wool as I sit and knit.
