So last night we discovered that with all of the leaves in it our dining room table becomes 8’ long. That is awesome. And also way bigger than any of our tablecloths. So we took a little trip to JoAnne Fabric and bought some green felt. Oh yeah - we’re not using this table for dinner parties, yet. Nope. It’s now the poker table of Matt’s dreams.
Anyways! After we got home I decided that I wanted to spin right now. But I was exhausted and it was late so I wasn’t quite up for starting a big or important project. And most of my fiber stash is handdyed that I don’t want to screw up because I’m spinning tired. Luckily this weekend Jacki gave me a little fiber ball:
I didn’t weigh it so I have no idea how much it was… or what it’s made up of. It’s some sortof yellow wool with blue/purple sparkly stuff in it.
An hour later – including a particularly frustrating 10 min where Dexter decided that the roving ball is his new toy and he needs to attack it with much ferocity - I had this:
The ball was a dream to spin. And so much fun. I ended up with about 10-15 yards of about a sport weight. Not very much at all. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it but it was fun to make!
Also thanks to everyone who added my mom as a friend on Ravelry! She's thrilled!
Oh and if you want to see some actual pics and info from the Boston trip Michele has been much, much better at blogging it than I have. Perhaps next post...
