Why is it that plans never work out as one intends? So I was supposed to take tomorrow off and become reacquainted with my spinning wheel, but instead I got sick over last weekend with a cold, had to miss Monday of work because I had a fever, and decided I didn’t want to take any more time just to get reacquainted with my wheel. But alas, all was not lost, last weekend after I cleaned up my wheel, I couldn’t resist and started spinning, and have done a little each day since. And then, I decided another fun project, while I was avoiding knitting the bedspread, was to start making myself a Dr. Who scarf with my homespun. So I hunted down my previously spun yarn from the same batches of roving and started the scarf. And I finished up two bobbins of single plies, and I plied the batches together last night. So the yarn in the spokes of the wheel are my newly spun yarn. I say this is a Dr. Who scarf because I intend to make it over 20 feet long. I’m using a color sample bundle of roving I purchased ages ago from Paridise Fibers and plying it with some nice cream. The effect kind of reminds me of fruit stripe gum. I should have taken a closer pictre of the yarn, but alas I didn’t. I always envision taking this gorgeous artistic photos. I never do.
I attempted, not so well, in this picture to show you how Django often sleeps, with all his paws together in a pile. And usually his ears are pointed directly up when he’s relaxed and when he’s awake they flop over. He is backward boy. Well its time to get back to the Dr. Who scarf, while I avoid for one more day the bedspread.
