No, I have not had some work done. :p
Last winter, our Jessica sent me a lovely surprise package. In it, along with my beloved I Hate People wallet, was some of her fiber. Recently, I was in rather desperate need of a break from spinning purple and pulled out the braid of merino fiber that she has so kindly sent me. Of course, I was too busy pre-drafting and spinning to get any photos. Are you really surprised?
I added A LOT of twist because I want socks out of this yarn. Extra twist makes for a stronger yarn and that's always better for something like socks. More so when they are socks for me.
That is 409 yards of 3-ply sock weight yarn. There was no name on the tag so I'm not sure if it has one or not. Our Jessica is currently at band bassoon camp, which means there will be a bit of a wait before we know anything. Assuming we ever do.
Currently, I've got a sink full of homemade purple yarn (!!!) and no clue where I'm going to hang it all because it's still in the 60's F here with rain on the way. It may or may not be dry by Monday. We'll just have to see.
Oh! And if you're a member of Ravelry and haven't already heard, you need to go check in on the front page and find out the latest regarding a password issue. Not a huge deal since we're all careful not to use the same password for all of our accounts (right?!), but still something to be aware of.
Three days in a row.
Y'all shocked, impressed or bored at this point? ;^)
