Spin Happy

Next up on the wheel will be 4oz of Falkland wool from Fat Cat Knits in the colorway "happy."
I bought it at Maryland Sheep and Wool. I think it was last year's festival, but it may have been the year before that (wool fumes aren't good for the memory). Here it is after a bit of predrafting.
I'm still striving for more intentional spinning, rather than the whatever-fine-weight-I-end-up-with spinning I've been able to do. So let's say I aim for a chunky or even a bulky single with this wool. My mantra will be "less treadling, less drafting." Let's see how it turns out.
