A Little Bit of This

And a little bit of that.

My friend who has been in the hospital for the last 12 days is now in surgery. Waiting to see no longer was an option. So, I am spending my time today getting stuff done around the house and waiting for news.

I intend to get a bit of gardening done today. I’ve got two boxes of bulbs that need to go in the ground this fall, but today may be more about moving more flowers out of the veggie garden. I have a friend coming to pick up some excess mums today, which is great. I don’t have a taker for the elderberry bush that Mr. Ink has carefully tended but now does not want. Ah well.

I did do a bunch of spinning yesterday. Or rather, plying. I had been spinning up the singles on spindles for ages and ages. I never measured the amount of fiber before hand. So, I was quite surprised to find that I ended up with over 900 yards of 3 ply! I am guessing those little batts were more along the lines of 8 ounces instead of 4?

I did a nice long 3 ply gradient, moving the colors one to the next fairly seamlessly. It was a pleasant plying job, and I am glad to have my spindles free again in case I decide to work on another project.

I also spent some time with girlfriends, took a long walk, and made some rolags yesterday. All in all a very pleasant day. I won’t show the rolags yet, as I am only halfway through the project. I had assumed I was done, but then when I weighed the fiber, I only had just over 3 ounces, and you KNOW I kind of hate under 4 ounce projects. All in all, a pretty relaxing day which was just what I was looking for!
