So I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
Sorry the blog sortof disappeared there for awhile – Life in Cleveland has been a bit on the crazy side lately. Big long update post coming… no big news or anything just lots of celebrations and parties and out of town guests and travel and well… Life.
Dexter does not like all of this Life because it requires him to have a bath.
And yes, I used the pink towel to further embarass him. Heh.
So last night we spent recovering from the weekend of busy and for me that meant dusting off the spinning wheel and getting back at it. There is really nothing more zen and relaxing than spinning. I love it. I do not, however, love that it is dark when I leave in the morning and dark when I get home at night. That makes for some un-good pictures of the pretty new yarn. So I threw together a super-ghetto “lightbox” out of a sheet and a desk lamp so that I could at least show you this:
That would be 2 entire bobbins full of the fire fiber. I probably have enough left to spin at least 2 more. And because I’m definitely improving I’m going to wait until I spin two more bobbins of singles to ply it together. I labled the yarn cakes “1” and “2” in the order that I spun them. Then eventually I will ply bobbin “1” with the future bobbin “4” and bobbin “2” with the future bobbin “3”. That way the last and theoretically best bobbin will be plyed with the first and theoretically worst bobbin. Hopefully that will even things out quite a bit.
Also this should result in a lot of yarn. I have some ideas for what I want to do with it… nothing completely concrete though, yet.
For now I’m just going to enjoy the spinning.
