I just finished this yarn yesterday. It was so windy, it dried in record time after its bath.
This is Perendale fiber from Southern Cross Fiber shop update, 4oz.
When I saw this fiber in the shop, I really wanted to try it; I've never heard of this Perendale (from New Zealand) before. Well, I've got to say, it will be a one time experience for me. I haven't pre drafted my fiber in a long time. I used to think it's necessary before spinning, but it's not. This however needed it desperately. It's rough fiber too, not for next to skin, not for me anyway. The colorway however is just gorgeous. The shades of green, so pretty, I really like it a lot. I'd like to get it on a different fiber some day. I have no idea what I'm going to knit out of this scratchy lot.
I've got 282yds, chain plied out of it.
Plus it's a little over twisted. Not even the bath got it all out. The last two photos show the true color.
In other news. We didn't get Maggie to be x-rayed after all. She did not limp all week, not even a little bit, and needed no medication. Thursday morning we decided to call it off. We can always do it, if she's limping again, but for now she's like her old self, a pup full of energy, wanting to get it all out. Running like a lunatic, jumping, and by accident, swimming also. She fell in the pool again. I didn't see how it happened, because I was just picking up the hose, when I heard a splash, but Denny was chasing her, so he might have something to do with it, or not, she's very clumsy too.
So, the other day was lovely, after days of rain, it was finally just cloudy, and a little sunny. I took that opportunity to sit on the deck for my afternoon tea.
Maggie was there.
Happy was there too, still being Nanny to her.
Denny, who shall be called Peeping Tom from now on, was there too, watching the neighbors daughter sunbathing. He stood there at least for 15 minutes, without moving a muscle. I don't know what's so fascinating, but he sure was interested.
As I said, I was there having my afternoon tea. I really wanted something sweet to go with it, but didn't even have sugar to bake something. The only thing I had was a very ripe banana, so I made myself a Banana/Almond milk smoothie. Does it go well with tea? Not really.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
