Spun out.

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 Bath
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:
Fire Yarn Fire Yarn

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.

    Your dexter is so CUTE getting a bath and man-oh-man, do I wish i could bath my dogs in the sink! Crackers will get in the tub and look utterly defeated on command. But not Hailey. First I have to catch the dog by her tail as she runs away from me and then carry her 75 pound WIGGINGLY and SQUIRMING butt into the bathroom and into the tub. And then I have to stand there and get wet as I pin her in place with my legs and wash her down. It's quite the ordeal! :)

    OH... and I am FASCINATED by the yarn spinning! How cool is that? :)

  5. Beautiful yarn you spun! :-) Hey, we Ohio girls can do ghetto when we gotta!

    Poor Dex. My dogs, on the other hand, love baths. Anytime water is running in the tub, we have to lock them out of the bathroom. They will jump into the tub with my daughter. Crazy Labs.

  8. I don't think Dexter cares too much in that picture what the color of his towel is just as long as it's warm and cozy. LOL. Nice spinning. Maybe someday I'll get into it.
