What a great day. It started with a nice ride down to Maryland – easy peasy with the new “navigator” and help from my co-pilot. We made it down in just about 3 hours. And even though we waited on line to park, it really wasn’t bad – the key is, have good company with you.
I had a list and accomplished the big one on it – A Woolee Winder!!! It is fan-frickin-tastic! I’ve been spinning alllllll day today. The dog yarn? Done. Plying it? Done! Soaking it? Done!!! On to spinning up some more of the Minuet? In progress and loving it. I can’t believe how much time it saves to not stop and change hooks on the bobbin – I’m mean, it’s just downright speedy!! My Mother’s Day gift from the DH and I’m so happy to have it.
There was lots of fiber purchased, a skein or two of yarn, possibly some silk and some lovely soaps. All to be photographed this week – you know, to make the festivities last longer. Right now, it’s this blog post and then more spinning, leading to a nice BBQ chicken dinner.
The ride home took a little bit longer than I thought, but it still went quite well – it did cloud up quite a bit while we were still in MD, but on the drive back it was mostly sunny skies. After dropping Laurie off at about 7:30, I head home – well not really, I head up to my house, passed it right by and went to a neighbors house for a Cinco De Mayo get together. I’m a tired dude today – happy, but tired.
Coming soon – Fiber gifts from spinning friends, and the load o’ fiber scored at MD.
