Rest days are never good for me. They take the wind out of me, and it's even harder to get back in the saddle. Last night, after I finished my Esther yarn, I prepared the next braid for spinning, but could not for the life of me, sit at the wheel and spin. So I didn't. I finished my test knit instead, and it felt really good.
Here's the yarn from yesterday: Esther on BFL, 3-ply, 259yds. I had left over singles on two bobbins, that explains the lower yardage.
and the real color is between the photos above, and this one.
Today I only got 2oz of my second braid of Esther spun. I might do a little more later on, but I certainly will not finish it today.
While I'm writing this blog post, the pups are here with me in my studio. They are tired, thank god!
Denny looks like he's shunned.
There is a thing like too much swimming for the dogs. Happy has some back ache today. I think it comes from him standing in the pool with his hind legs so much and playing with the hose hanging in from the side. No more hose playing for him, and reduced swimming time the next few days. I can't keep him out altogether though, he's so sneaky sometimes. The other two are fine. Maggie didn't swim at all today, just got hosed down, which she likes just fine. Denny did swim, but mostly sits his butt at the stairs, soaking, waiting for Happy to come out.
