Hooray! My math skills tell me that I have at least 400 yards of 3-ply here (426, to be precise). I’ll figure out wpi once the skein is dry, but I am thrilled! There should be plenty here for a pair of socks.
I gave this an extra long soak because of how energized it seemed. (Am I supposed to let my plyed yarn rest, too?) You can see that it is a little curly-q-ish down near the bottom of the hanging loop, indicating some overplying, but on the whole, I’m quite happy about this. I’m still looking for that balance between overspinning/underspinning and over/under plying. (And maybe I’ll be forever looking for it!)
Anyway, I was so excited about how this turned out that I just had to sit back down at the wheel, even though it was WAY past my bedtime.
This is the first bobbin of 2 oz of CVM from cosy in a colorway named sunset. I just sat down and spun, without a plan. I am already seeing that my default spinning is getting thinner, and that I need to really think about what I’m doing to make a thicker, even yarn. I love the richness of these colors — the perfect antidote to a rather rainy summer?
This guy thinks so (or not). I looked up from plying/spinning several times yesterday to find Boh hinting that he might want more attention. We took an extra walk around the neighborhood last night, and we have plans for either a hike or a trip to the d-o-g-p-a-r-k today.
Also, it is getting to be that time! I realized that this is the last week of my calendar yesterday, and stopped by the campus store to pick up an 09-10 replacement. I love starting a new planner. (Yes, I am a big nerd.) Yesterday I copied pertinent pieces of the fall campus-wide schdule into my calendar and thought a bit about classes/plans for the coming semester, which felt good to me.
That’s enough school talk for a Friday. Have a great weekend!
Yay! I’m so excited to see the socks. Congrats!
Those are going to be socks made of awesome. Love the color!
So much pretty spinning! Boh must be an awesome fiber muse. Good work, Boh! Starting a new planner is always very exciting … I’ve been debating my options, as mine is about out of pages too. Happy weekend!
The one thing I miss most about being a student is my Perfect Planner(tm). Unfortunately, in the digital age, I haven’t found anything that quite measures up as well.
Weird…10 years ago, I started a planner from the UCLA bookstore (I am a total nerd about planners, too) with an almost identical cover. I am absolutely sure it was the same exact font. I wonder if the same company makes all college planners??
That is extremely gorgeous sock yarn! Great job! I wish I could achieve such loveliness and yardage. How many ounces of fiber did you use? The only thing I miss now that I’m done university – every fall I wish I had a crisp new planner. And pencil case. I miss those, too!
