That would be me spinning

Please do not pass out.

I left them as singles (because what the hell would I knit with half of that?) and tried a new blocking method. You leave you singles or over-twist yarns on the noddy noddy and steam iron it. Move it, iron it… etc.

If I had more patience, I’m sure it would have worked nicely. I have a tall iron, so I could only do little sections. About the 3rd time I had to shift the yarn, I called it good. You can definitely tell where it was ironed and not. I’ll wet finish it later.

It’s hot. Hot enough that I’m not excited about the tournament this weekend. Hot enough that I’m thinking of leaving my husband and showing up on Angie’s doorstep for the summer.  I may have mentioned to Texas that I was moving back to the lake house until October (it’s about 15 degrees cooler there) and he was o.k. with it. I figure 2.5 hours to the lake vs. 15 hours or so to Wisconsin… that’s about the same difference, right?

Besides, Angie has a creek, a new loom, a fiber room and precious kitties. You don’t think she’ll mind, do you?

Happy Wednesday y’all!

  1. I wonder why yarn makes me think of food…anyway your colors look like caramel and chocolate. Yummy!

    I think our highs for Monday and Tuesday are in the 60s. Again. Yup. Definitely cooler here than there. A stay at the lake sounds very nice.

  2. You’re certainly welcome but it is a bit of a drive. I’ll just be in the studio playing with my loom. Thanks for taking the summer heat down there because it has been a lovely summer up here, so far. :D

  3. Lovely spinning! Did you enjoy it? I’m spinning, too.

    Are you going to get the cooler weather this week? I think we are, and it pleases me no end. I hope you find some relief. xo
