I only managed to spin 1 1/2oz of Henry yesterday, and finished it off today. But that's it for today. That's all I've got. I need to give my fingers, and elbows a break. Who knows though, I might start plying Henry tonight, if I feel up to it.
I made an interesting observation today. I pinch the fiber with my thumb, and index finger of my right hand, and draft out the fiber with my left hand. Since I've worked a groove into my index finger, which hurts (it's like a cut made with fiber, slowly but surely), I thought I'd try changing what I do from right hand to left hand. Oh boy, I laughed out loud, because I could have hung two wet gloves there, and had the same result. I could not do it at all!
That's 4oz on the bobbin, and it's not even full to the maximum, which means I've spun it thin. I also have the feeling it's thinner than the first 4oz. I will chain ply it, and we'll see.
I have decided on my next fiber. It's FatCatKnits Esther on BFL. This is a stock colorway, which you can get on all the base fibers Ginny has to offer. I bought mine some time ago, but it's this month fiber of the month of July.
The following is something which happens often, but I only got some photographic evidence yesterday afternoon. While Happy is swimming happily with his beloved rubber bone between his teeth, Denny waits for him to come out so he can grab it and run. Of course Happy does not want that, so he swims around in circles, until Denny loses his patience.
That's when he decides to swim over to get it. That makes Happy start flapping his paws, and give Denny (to his annoyance),
a good dunking. After that both race to the stairs, just to start it all over again later.
I almost forgot again. I have a question for all knitters who read this blog. I got into an argument about garter stitch knitting. It's a long story, but the one question I have is, does anybody knit garter stitch purling each row, just for fun and giggles (or because they love purling so much?). I said, I don't think anybody would do that, but what do I know?
