My beads are here, my beads are here! #excited

We (well, my husband and my MIL) put a garden in yesterday.

Not sure what kind of tree this is, but the new growth is red!

Happy May Day! I’m spending today with this fiber, kicking off Project Spectrum spinning up some red. I’m taking the red/orange theme to entail challenge, too, and this wool/silk blend is living up to that. :) I’ve never spun this blend before, nor anything with silk in it, truth be told. I was a little worried about it, but I decided to tackle it anyway. As you can see, the silk just runs alongside the wool in this combed top, rather than the two actually being blended together.
