Who Says Yarn Doesn't Grow on Trees?
So I have had a very fibery day, such a nice treat. I had breakfast with Jodie and caught up with her, also handed off my hats for Kate and the goodies that I procured for her at Madrona. Then came home and spent some time spinning...and even went that final step and soaked the spun yarn and hung it outside to dry.
From left to right: 'winter storm" (more on this below, the purple navajo plied yarn you saw a few posts back,some blue navajo plied, and the purple two ply also from a few posts back. The blue is...hmm...there's a spinning word for it...energized? I think that's it. It's very twisty. Very. But I like it. I think I'll do some type of shawl with my blue and purple handspun. I have oodles.
(Note to self: when spinning the rest, start wtih the SECOND lightest color).
All in all, a good day. I did a lot of work yesterday, and realized today that I have only a few short weeks left of my sabbatical. We have the first draft of our word of mouth book done and it's being considered by a publisher, so I feel that I've accomplished a bit.
Next post: knitting news, including some socks and my frustrations with blocking Sea Silk (if you have blocked this fiber, please let me know how you did it).
