Got to go round

Spinning Wheel Lyrics
Artist(Band):Blood, Sweat & Tears


What goes up must come down
spinning wheel got to go round
Talking about your troubles it’s a crying sin
Ride a painted pony
Let the spinning wheel spin

You got no money, and you, you got no home
Spinning wheel all alone
Talking about your troubles and you, you never learn
Ride a painted pony
let the spinning wheel turn

Did you find a directing sign
on the straight and narrow highway?
Would you mind a reflecting sign
Just let it shine within your mind
And show you the colours that are real

Someone is waiting just for you
spinning wheel is spinning true
Drop all your troubles, by the river side
Catch a painted pony
On the spinning wheel ride

I know it’s a cliche but I just had to put the lyrics here.  Look what I did today!

 newbie spinner 1st efforts

My first effort is on the left, my second on the right (on the bobbin).  I’ve put a significant dent in my bag of corriedale roving, and I’m flirting with the idea of handpainting after I make another bobbinfull and ply.  I think I’ll get fiber-reactive colors; Hands on Dyeing is making me feel brave.  I’m hoping to get “colours that are real”.  Someday.
