This day is not over yet, and I might get some more spinning done, but I doubt, that I'll finish it all today.
That's how far I've come so far.
This is going slower, because I'm spinning it thin to make sock yarn. It's Falkland colorway Henry. I do have 8oz of it, but I'm just spinning up 4oz right now. I'm thinking to spin 4oz of all the 8oz bags I have first, to mix it up, and go back to the second batch later.
I might have finished spinning today's fiber, if I hadn't have to ply some of yesterdays yarn this morning. I lost some spinning time yesterday, entertaining a dinner guest, and you can't throw guests out, when they still chew their last bite, can you?
So this morning I plied, some, I wound the skeins, bathed them and now here they are.
This is 10oz merino/bamboo/nylon from FatCatKnits Mixed Blessings Fiber Club November 2010. I 2-plied it with merino cobweb lace yarn in orange. It's very soft, and a little bit shiny.
I've got a total of 338yds of the lighter colorway, and a total of 386yds of the darker colorway.
The pups were soaking up the sun (like the skeins after their bath). Sometimes I don't understand how they can ly in the sun, especially Denny, since he get's hot really quickly. Only Maggie was smart enough to stay near the cool air vent.
Happy is just handsome.
So, after a short break, to let my fingers relax back into normal position, I'll spin a little more, but since last night's spinning was encroaching into my reading time, I'll be sure to get more reading in tonight. That's if I can hold up my iPad.
