Canada Day Spinning

Thursday, July 2, 2009 at 12:10 a.m.
Today was Canada Day. Really, to be honest, it just means a day off. I'm not very patriotic, I don't like fireworks, or crowds, and in fact just wish all the people would get out of my neighbourhood.
However, I do appreciate a chance to sleep in! Also, I got in a few great hours of spinning!

This is a roving braid from Dyed in the Wool Handmade. I seriously love spinning up her stuff - it's so easy to spin, it's like butter!
I split the braid in half, and spun half onto each bobbin. When I was finished (after Zoolander, half of Battlestar Galactica: Razor, and one episode of Blackpool) the singles looked like they came from two different braids:

I plied them together, and this is what I got:


150-ish yards of worsted-ish weight yarn. It's pretty!

I've decided to do the Tour de Fleece again this year, and my challenge is just to spin a little every day, as thin as I can. I'm aiming for a nice sock yarn.. we'll see.

Tomorrow I have off as well, and I'm so thrilled about it. Another day to sleep in!!!!!

Also, I need new books to read. The library isn't bringing in my holds fast enough. That, or new fanfiction. Most of mine is (sadly) stuck on my Mac. : (
