I was all excited when I heard about Cyber Monday. Then I found out what it was. So disappointed. Talk about false advertising...

Remember the 12 oz of fiber that was really 13 oz of fiber?
Yeah, me, either, but our Joan keeps telling me to show the meat sheep yarn. Even though, the fiber was NOT from a meat sheep. (She asked me what color it was while I was spinning it and I told her meat sheep because it was the only thing I could think of. Yes, I know that's sad.) (Shut up.)
That is 2583 yards of cabled yarn, weighing in at 12.8 oz. I plied 2 singles together. Then I put that yarn onto my ball winder and plied from both ends of the yarn cake. I guess that sort of makes it a 4 ply yarn, but not really.
Or, at least, not in my world.
Over here, I'm looking at and pondering plying it again to get something slightly thicker.
Yes, I know.
I'm a freak.
Not exactly breaking news, ya know.
(Assuming I survive taking my mother to an appointment. o.O)
I'll show you some handspun and talk a tiny bit more about what Joan and I are doing next year. We also may play a round of "does anyone remember this yarn?" because even I don't know where some of it came from and I spun it. Well, most of it.
