Happy Halloween!

I’ve got a flower girl to show off,

She made out like a bandit in the candy department. I managed to score one Almond Joy, but no Butter Fingers at all!  The neighborhood was so crazy busy and so fully decorated, so we walked and walked and hung out and looked at costumes. Now that we are home, I find myself exhausted and my back is feeling it too.

But, I do have some completed spinning to show off. The Perendale I’d been working on is complete. I have just under 400 yards of navajo plyed yarn. It is fairly thin, light fingering weight yarn I’d say. It turned out just lovely.


Since I was at a friends house when I completed this project, and couldn’t manage to just leave it on the wheel, I wrapped it around a chair back. I thought the chair itself would have enough ease to remove it from the chair back, but once I started removing the hank, it became apparent it was too tight. It really did take a bit of time to ease the hank off the chair just a few strands of yarn at a time.

Stick around and I might even show you tomorrow how far I am on that Starmore sweater!
