2721  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / 3 June Fiber Friday on: June 03, 2011 07:36:45 AM
I FOUND IT! I FOUND IT! But before I go there I will share these:

Last thing I spun on my wheel before the kids lost "it":

100% Polwarth, 190 yards. This stuff was really light on one end and gradually went to really dark on the other end. I split it in half lengthwise, spun each about the same, then plied the light with the dark so they met in the middle. I think I did OK on that.

Then since the kids lost "it" and I needed my fix, I spun up this on my Drop Spindle:

112 yards WOOL. I got this wool from Ptarmic_wumpus in a personal swap. It was a small batt of blue and a small batt of orange so I ripped them into strips and spun it thin and variegated.

AND THEN I FOUND IT! I had spun up 3 bobbins of wool from the same Wumpus and planned on plying them but then the kids lost the top of my last bobbin before I could glue it back on and I've been so sad for weeks now. BUT I FOUND IT! I am the MOTHER of AWESOME. For now. Here's what I plied up:

Total yardage: ~300 yards. One bobbin was a greasy feeling brown, one bobbin was a dark blue, and the third bobbin was variegated blue/green. I love it. I think it will felt good. Also, I got my 2 yard Niddy Noddy in this time frame and have been wanting to use it. I like it. It works for me. Tempted to go through all my bigger skeins and re-wrap them but we will see. I do need to get ready for the Farmer's Market starting July 2...

Um, yeah, what have you guys done recently?

k-Cat, I meant to say last post that it sucks about your RA. My MIL has it and she just had to get her thumb surgeried. Yikes! Yay e-spinner! Post pics when you make it, I wanna see.

Belladune you are so cute with your bandana and sheep. I need to get pictures of the sheep I get my fleece's from. I should remember that when MOPS starts again. I don't envy you the smell, but as long as there is not cat pee in it I can tolerate it.

I AM THE MOTHER F'ING QUEEN OF AWESOME! You know what I found?!?!?! The top of my last bobbin, right where I thought it would be and right where I already checked for it at least 3 times. I CAN SPIN AGAIN! Oh, I need to go start FF. It is Friday, right?

JUNE GOALS
Find the top of my last bobbin and ply the yarns I have on the other 3.
Spin up 2+ more skeins, on top of what I have on the bobbins.
Get ready for the Sheep to Shawl challenge.

My fiber stash last month exploded, I am now comfortable saying I have a stash! And shortly thereafter I lost that part and now I can't do anything unless I want to use my spindle, which I have a little. *sigh*

I just stitched up the back and then realized I forgot to add the ________ connecting the ______ to the ____! But I was debating about leaving it this way before anyway so I hope Dearbluebird likes it. I do, but will she???
