I opted out of this fucked up week a few days ago and it was one of the better decisions I've ever made. I don't know what day it is, what time it is or WTF is going.
Thankfully, I have BBC America On Demand to keep me company while I spin and try not to think too much. So far, so good. Lots of spinning and plying and other stuff.
The above yarn was spun last week... whenever that was... and plied on the first day of the Tour. Then I got down to spinning the Cupcake Fiber Co fluff. I've done a box of sock fiber. Lovely 3-ply in a great colorway that I'll show you once I count the yardage. Assuming I survive the counting. I'm not totally sure I will, but time will tell.
Currently working on that sweaters worth of Shetland from the Meat Sheep Industries. It's going well and I'm already thinking about the plying. Should I fill all my standard bobbins and ply on the jumbo flyer? Or should I ply onto a standard size bobbin? I've got time to figure that out but not that much time. Ya know?
& No, using cores is not an option. I know someone would like that but I really don't relish the thought of having to wind off singles onto cores and ply from them. I sort of feel like it's better to limit how much handling the singles get before plying.
Does that even make sense?
There's more lace weight to show off but you'll have to wait. Unless the bitches hiding out in the azaleas want to get photos and share them around. They might, ya know. They do need a proper hobby. Hanging out in my azaleas, waiting for me to do something, so they can be in the know is not a proper hobby. In fact, it's a sign of being mentally unstable, but whatever.
At least, they scared the squirrels away.
Happy Whatever The Fuck Day It Is!
