I've written this post partly in advance, because I was not sure if I'd have Internet access this week, but as it turns out, I still do.
This is how I feel these days.
I haven't been spinning for a week now, and there's no knitting going on whatsoever. I miss both, but am too exhausted at the end of the day, to do anything. Good thing I've still some things to show for a while.
This is one half of of June's Mixed Blessing Fiber Club. It's wonderful fiber, so soft, and slippery, and it has wonderful drape. I liked the pre-drafted fiber best. The finished yarn looks a little boring to me.
I made it 2-ply, ~ 197yds. Only the finished yarn showed the hairiness of the Alpaca. Oh, did I mention it's 70% silver Alpaca and 30% silk. It was nice to spin such luxurious fiber for a change. I've been spinning a lot of Falkland lately, which is very different from this.
Denny is doing very well. Because they play rough most of the time, they can't be together all the time during the day, so either both, or one or the other have to chill out in the crates.
Funny thing happened today, while I was checking emails. It was Happy's turn in the crate, when Denny tried to open the crate door for Happy to come out! He can do that with his own crate, when it's not locked, and he gets stuff out of it, as well as the blanket inside. But of course he could not open the locked door, but he sure tried hard, and got frustrated, and left in disgust to chew on a bone. I think that was so sweet!
The surgery seems to have little effect on Denny so far. He's not licking his wound, it's looking really good. Happy showed some interest, but I shooed him away. This morning Denny could not wait for the door to open at the Vet's, and he scratched at it impatiently. He greeted everybody like he hadn't seen them in ages, he's not holding a grudge! :o)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Oh, almost forgot! Scoot over to Mia - she finished a pair of socks made with my handspun yarn! :o)
