While it's sizzling hot outside (35C feels like 40C), we enjoy some cool air inside. In the basement we have 21C, which is perfect, and doesn't make us immediately sleepy, like upstairs, or outside. Anyway, it lets me still enjoy touching fiber, and yarn. The pups appreciate the cooler temps too, after staggering around, jumping from shady place to shady place. The cooling water from the hose was very much appreciated by two out of three. Number three went into the pool to cool off.
Last night, after I thought I was done for the day, I grabbed some Petey Pete on super wash Merino fiber (long time fiber stash inhabitant), and started spinning. I filled one bobbin quickly, but left the second one for today.
It was quickly plied, since I was trying to spin thicker this time.
It was dry within the hour, and here it is, some squishy, super soft Merino yarn, 2-ply, 120yds.
There will be more of this fiber, I have another 4oz, but I'm going to do another 3-ply with it, to mix things up a little. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to tomorrows rest day. I've got to catch up with housework, and laundry etc. before we go into the last stages of Tour de Fleece. Can't wait for it to be over.
