Since my Kleenex box is my new best friend, my shadow, my confidant (I don't think that's anything to be ashamed of, but hey, I'm medicated!), I really should blog it today. Instead, in the spirit of this blog being mostly about spinning, knitting and other adventures of the fibery kind, I will show you some spinning. This is the Merino/Kid Mohair that I'm going to make a cabled yarn out of. I have 8 ounces of top. As you can see, I have 2 ounces of singles completed on one bobbin, and I'm working on the second bobbin of singles. I'm going to make myself get all of the singles spun before I ply and reply because I think the plying part, while twice as long as regular plying, will be pretty fast. I try to spin on this at least a little bit during the day, but some days I get more done than others.
The Kleenex box and I did get a tiny bit started on writing the Mystery Stole pattern yesterday, but as you can see, we still can't spell the name without looking it up. The Kleenex box was supposed to look it up, write it down on a sticky note, and stick it to itself where I could easily see it, but its slacking off. It seems to think that being there for me when I sneeze is enough. Honestly, I'm high maintenance, and I need a Kleenex box that will be there for me. I may have to replace it with the lotiony kind of Kleenex.
