I finished the plying of the blue merino silk, and then promptly finished the spinning of some wool from dyeabolical in the colorway flower shop inferno. I started plying it even before I finished spinning it, one of the huge advantages to using spindles and wheels interchangeably.
On Tuesday, Marja dropped by and gave me a beautiful Inglenook Batt. This is the latest hobbit themed batt, Thorin Oakenshield. Marja and I went to see the first hobbit film together last year for my birthday, and we will probably do so again this year. So her generosity in picking up this batt for me is all the more meaningful.
I had told myself I would not start spinning this until the weekend, intending to get some knitting done instead. That just did not happen! It was irresistible to me and I had to start it as soon as I had free spindles last evening.
