I worked from home yesterday, and at lunch checked my personal email….there was an email from someone saying that if I wanted company later, she could come over ….that sounded good….
Spinning outside with a friend is really nice – it was a beautiful afternoon, and we spent a couple of hours chatting and spinning (and the dogs enjoyed having someone new to bother). It also makes spinning go quickly….and I finally finished the Cherry Tree Hill roving….I had a little roving left but just couldn’t get anything more on the bobbin.
Now I just need to skein it up. I wound it on the niddy noddy for a while last night – and I’m not even half way down on the bobbin, so this is going to take a couple of days to get it off the bobbin – this highlights my need for a skein winder. Good thing Chris’ husband makes them!
I definitely have enough for a shawl….I’m wasn’t going to ply it, but just use singles. I’m a bit worried how that will work, so I’m going to watch how the singles look once I get it off the bobbin and then decide. I suppose it will depend on how much I have – I really want to use this for a shawl, so if plying it means I won’t have enough, I don’t want to do that. But it did break once pulling it off, so I’m concerned the singles aren’t strong enough.
All in all, a wonderful afternoon!
One more day and a wakeup and its Maryland!
