SERIOUSLY!!!!!????

Sadly snow has followed me all the way to North Carolina and BG has decided to stand out in it!  He has a coat on but I'm guessing  he's going to need a dry one when he gets tucked in for the night.
Sigh

Blog Slog

It's been a while!  I'm recovering from a serious case of Blog Slog.  I'm dusting off the cobwebs now and trying to get back into the swing of it.  It didn't affect the fiber activities in the wheel room any though....thank goodness.  In fact those activities may have contributed to the blog slog.  There's only so much time in a day after all.

I had acquired a substantial amount of bits and pieces of various fiber waste from the time I started this whole spinning adventure until now and it was time to try and find a good use for it.

I threw it all on the drum carder and came up with this multi-colored blob of fluff.

I was so pleased to see it all spun up into this oversized  tweedy bobbin of DK two ply
but then something happened on the way to the yarn swift!
I had forgotten to tie the strands before washing the skein and the result was the biggest tangled mess I have ever seen.....so yeah.....if anyone is looking for someone to tangle your yarn I'm your girl!!  Sigh
It took the better part of the day to untangle all 353 yards of it and wind it the old fashioned way into this big ball.  I'm impressed with the ball but the process was awful....just awful!!!
