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. : (

Niagara Falls!

Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 10:59 p.m.
Today mom and I went to the Falls. Since I'm "working" at the ROM, I get in free at lots of Ontario attractions, through the reciprocal program.
First, we went to the Skylon Tower.
365-11 The Falls!!!

It wasn't very busy, which was nice, though it was raining.
We also saw a lame-ass "4-D" movie, which was lame, and we were glad it was free.
Then, we went on the Whirlpool Aero car.
Aero Car!
It was also really cool. We went over the whirlpool, and apparently crossed the Canadian-US border 4 times in the process.

Then, we attempted to go to the butterfly conservatory, but they told us that we could only use the pass Monday to Friday. So we walked around the botanical gardens. It was fun, but since it had stopped raining, I wished I had a better camera.





All in all, really fun day.
