hazy hot and humid...

I'm hot and sweaty and really hot. Even the cat is hot.... poor cat

I don't feel like doing much of anything at the moment. I do feel like spinning. Perhaps it's because I don't really have to think while I am doing it. I dunno. I made another spigot spindle and to test it out I have spun up some super wash merino. I could only get about an ounce on here. Comfortably for me, others I am sure could fit more.

I decided to ply it on my wheel and see how it came out. It broke in one spot (crap) so I tied the ends together and kept going. I got about 110 yards of a very fluffy worsted weight. I was going for fingering, but when I washed it, it just bloomed!

Pretty pretty!
I wish I had some Popsicles.......

  2. I just love all your handspun-this is especially gorgeous!
