A Day of Spinning

Well, I didn't finish the socks yesterday after all. I spun. And then I spun some more. I filled another bobbin with the Falkland (now I'm up to 4 - Woo Hoo) and then I spun half of the roving for Caleb's socks. That's the GCNI/mohair that we dyed with Wilton's during the summer. The spindle is holding 1.5 ounces of it. I've started the second 1.5 ounces on another spindle and then I'll ply to a third spindle. As far as the Falkland, once I fill one more bobbin with singles, I'll be halfway done spinning it. I think once I get to that point, I'll start feeling like I'm actually getting somewhere on it. I've never spun enough for an entire sweater before so this is pretty big for me. I've got some batts I got from MDS&W that are also for a sweater, but they are dyed, so I think I'll be able to keep focused on them once I get to them. I will definitely do something small if I ever finish the Falkland, before I start the other sweater yarn.

I also worked a few more rows on Gryffindor Mourning, but I'm still in the navy section so I didn't see any point in boring you since you just saw it. It has started raining here again and its supposed to rain all week. No sunshine always makes the cat get upset. I expect him to start meowing at the sky any minute now. Poor little thing is just sure he's going to freeze to death - even though the house is the same temperature it always is. He has taken to sleeping in his Kitty Pi bed again. Nothing like a felted wool bed to take the chill off.

I really love that blue/green yarn! Is that a Fricke bobbin I see the cream on?
