Well, it was decided that since the weather ruined our official Roc Day celebration that we would reschedule our spinning celebration to yesterday. I know it’s not really Roc Day, but fun was had by all!! These are the wheels that were there, I took these while we were busy with our pot luck lunch :). The spinner below on the right (and owner of the local spinning shop, R. Rabbits Fiber Studio ,) is enjoying her unoffical Roc Day spinning. ;)
The Llama is FINISHED!! That is what I did at our Roc Day, finished spinning the 2nd spool and plyed and skeined off. I washed it and hung it to dry yesterday afternoon and used my new swift and ball winder this morning to make a center pull ball from one of them. I will wind the other skein and my son will have the Llama yarn he has been patiently (ummmm) waiting for. :)
As you can see I’ve already started my next project. I really wanted to spin the Suri Alpaca, but I have a gift project to finish first, then I can spin that Suri. :) This is the Merino Superwash that I dyed with the Wilton purple cake decorating color. The last time I used it I got beautiful shades of lavender and light purple. This time it was light purple, lavender and light blue. Gorgeous colors, but they are so unpredictable, great if you want the excitment of a mystery color, tho’ be prepared to be surprised at the finished colors. :) But before I spin any more of this I need to finish knitting my grand daughter’s blanket. She has been plenty patient and I need to get it done :).
Ok, YES!!! The Cowboys beat the Eagles again (played them three times this year and beat them all three times and the Eagles are no slouches!!) They not only won their division the week before last when they beat the Eagles, but this week’s win against the Eagles won a wild card slot for the playoffs. Now this Sunday they play the Vikings, that should be an interesting match up. I’ll be recording that to watch on Monday night :P. The Cowboys have finally started to work together as a team and what a year they’ve had!!! :) Now they just need to work on those penalties! :P
