Yeah, while DH and DS are on vacation, I'm enjoying my time home alone. I've read 6 books so far, in addition to spinning and knitting, and playing with the dogs. Not doing much else, as I said, enjoying my time off too.
I took a picture before they left, of the fiber I'm planning on spinning. I'm still on the natural stuff. I found out that spinning for a specific project is not as easy, as spinning just for the heck of it. Getting the right yarn weight is harder than I thought. I wanted to do a 2-ply, but as it turned out, the singles were too thin, so I did a navajo plying with the first skein, and it looks like it's going to work. Now to achieve the same results with the colored fiber. If all goes well, these fibers will be mittens some day.Since I don't have new and up to date pictures, I found this one. I got this for Mother's Day this year. O.K. I helped picking it out, this way I'm sure to love what I get. Isn't' this tea cup pouch adorable? It holds small stuff, which would otherwise disappear in my bags, never to be found again.
