A Little More Spinning

When I'm not knitting on Mindy's Christmas Stole, I've been spinning some more of the Corridale roving (Beach from Kendig Cottage-mine doesn't have any of the shell pink color that's shown on the website). I'm almost finished with the second bobbin of singles. (I have 12 ounces total of this colorway and I'll spin 4 bobbins of singles before I ply.) I don't have any definite plans for this yarn, I guess I'm just spinning it for the sake of spinning, and having some color. My original plan was to make it two ply yarn and just let the colors fall where they wanted, but a tiny voice in my head has been suggesting Navajo plying to keep the colors separate. I don't know yet if I'll listen to the tiny voice or not - this is not the voice in my head that I HAVE to listen to or I end up regretting it - that's a completely different voice. This is more the little Hmm, That's Not A Bad Idea voice. Yes, I have more than one voice in my head, don't you?

We picked up Finn last night and he's being really good. We haven't had to put an E Collar on him yet since the couple of times he's tried to lick at himself, he's quit when I told him to, "Leave It." I hope he doesn't get more persistent about it when he feels better because the E Collar we have was Bear's from when he was a full sized, 80 pound Golden (Finn now weighs 48 pounds, by the way.) I don't want to go buy a smaller sized E Collar because he'll out grow it pretty quickly so the vet tech and I discussed ways to adapt Bear's big collar to Finn's slightly smaller head and neck. Let's just say that duck tape might be involved - you know, to make it really classy! That will teach him to pick at himself. Right now though, he's just taking it easy and sleeping a lot. (When we brought him home, he smelled different and Ramius thought we had a different dog. Let's just say the cat wasn't very happy with any of us last night.)

Glad to hear that Finn is on the road to recovery. Hopefully, the next few days will speed by and he'll leave his stitches alone.

He might pick at it more, later - as it starts to heal, it will start to itch more. Love your blog!

Glad that Finn is doing well. I sure hope he leaves his stitches alone - would hate to see that big E-collar/duct tape contraption around his neck!

The spinning is lovely, those colors look so soft and peaceful. Can't wait to get my spindle in and give this spinning thing a go!

Nice spinning, is it really bright colourwise or just my monitor?

Alys says to tell Finn he REALLY doesn't want the e-collar on. She suffered along with our knees for two weeks! ;-)

Glad to hear Finn made it through ok. Although he probably isn't too happy yet? :-) Love the spinning colors!

Hugs to the lad! When Diesel had a tumor removed, he broke his E-collar the first day. Sigh ... his second collar - he broke the following day ... sigh again. Suffice to say - that one was put together with packing tape. WhEEEEE!
