It's always a pleasure to spin SAG flowers into fine yarn. This time I decided on a real 3-ply yarn. I used a scale to divide it into three equal parts, or so I thought.
I've planted five Hydrangea in my front yard this year. There are blue ones, pink ones, and yellowish/white ones. We'll see what color they'll be next year, since it depends on the PH in the soil. I like them all.
When Shelby offered Hydrangea as a colorway, I could not resist.
The fiber base is BFL, 4oz, and I've got 231yds of 3-ply yarn. To my surprise I had left over singles on two bobbins, and navajo plied those into 46yds of left over yarn. The weight of the three parts before spinning was off by about 2grams; at a certain point you can't divide it anymore. So I guess even a couple of grams make a big difference, since the finished yarn was the same weight. It looks like I've spun it fairly even.
Lately I've been thinking of selling some of my handspun yarn. I'm certainly producing more than I can kit right away. Would there be some interest in general?
The boys are still swimming, after a good run in the back yard, even though the water is ice cold by now. Afterwards they do feel chilly, so they welcome a blanket until they are dry again.
Turns out, while I'm playing fetch with Happy, Denny is either digging or chewing on a branch. He's a lazy pup. He does not like to run around, and he has zero retrieving genes in him. Maybe once or twice while we are outside, he chases Happy, to bite his tail, or his hind leg (still, has not outgrown that stage), or they both chase a bird, of all things! They both hate birds, squirrels they don't care about as much. Even a little running, makes Denny feeling hot and tired, so he goes for a lovely swim in the pool. He seems really to enjoy just swimming around, while Happy always has to fetch something out of the water, and does not swim around just do cool off. He needs a purpose.
On the reno front: They've put in the wood floor in my bedroom. Now they can install the new closets and cabinets there as well. They didn't work on the kitchen yesterday, because they are waiting for the counter top to be delivered, and other little things. I don't care as long as they do SOMETHING. Today only a painter showed up to do touch ups, and a million other small painting things. I'm so glad I don't have to do this myself.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
PS I've been really bad in answering emails lately. I think it's because I don't have five minutes at times, without being interrupted. This drives me crazy, and makes me cranky. I hope to get back into it soon.
