Heads up for Moms- to-Be

How to entertain a small baby :

1. Lay baby on her back on the floor
2. Stand over her
3. Split and pre-draft multicolored roving
4. (optional) Sing silly songs

Because I know I will get asked - the fiber is merino, dyed by methis morning in a rush to have something to spin that doesn't need close attention at tonight's spinning group.

How fabulous that the baby is entertained by predrafting fiber! The color you dyed is lovely.

This is good entertainment. Hopefully, watching you predraft fiber will encourage her to spin when she gets older.

Those look like giant rosy peaches or something equally as wonderful. :) Balls the color of pure happiness, I tell you.

Sounds great, I'll have to try that! My little daughter loves watching my spindle as I spin. I'm really thankful that they can be so easy to entertain sometimes.

Pretty! That's great that she's cool with the fiber. How long before she starts grabbing at it?
