Sooooooo, I passed the point of this being fun last night. I was ready to just not finish the 4oz of Henry, but I'm stubborn, plus my son kept cheering me on. So I finished it in good time, which means before 10PM.
This is FatCatKnits Henry on Falkland. Yes, I know, I have a lot of Falkland, but I think it's good sock material. I chain plied it, and got 282yds. I still have another 4oz to spin. This is so much softer than the old Falkland from 5 years ago. Ginny sure learned a lot about handling fiber, and dyeing it, plus she said she has a different supplier now too. I could spin Falkland all day long, wait, I did that already.
It's hot out again today, in the morning we had some rain, but now it's searing hot. This little skein was dry in no time at all. I did have to ply it this morning, so I started on my today's fiber in the afternoon.
I've got two bobbins done. It's going to be another 3-ply yarn. It's another old fiber from 2007, but it's 100% merino combed top. Ripping it into strips helped counter that it's compacted from hiding under all the other fiber. It's a lovely colorway, called Toadstool. I think I'm going to finish the third bobbin tonight, and ply again tomorrow morning. I haven't made up my mind yet, whether I'm going to spin the second 4oz of this colorway right away, or not.
With all this spinning, the pups are bored. Not even the smell of pork chops sizzling in the pan helped lighten their mood. They can't be swimming all day, can they? Well, I know they think they can, but they are not on vacation! I could really need some cheering, instead of making me feel guilty. They are really good at THAT!
