FO TdF Spinning

I made my goal with time to spare this year!

Finished the singles and wound them onto a plying ball.

Plied up a 2-ply yarn on a Turkish spindle ... it almost didn't fit on there.

154 yds 2-ply - ranges from laceweight to very, very fine fingering.

Traveling Monsters Vol. 7

This is Scrappy.  Scrappy is from Florida, so didn't mind the heat we've been having recently.

I wasn't a very exciting host for Scrappy.  We only went out to run errands.

While doing that I stopped at the local ice cream / seafood place for my favorite, a Raspberry Lime Rickey.

And I showed Scrappy the duck pond there.

Friday Felines Vol 17 2015

This is LadyBug.  She also lives with my in laws.  Another rescue from the shelter.  She is missing a leg, but makes up for it in super happy-go-lucky sweetness.  She is the SWEETEST cat I have ever met, aside from their last diabetic cat with a missing leg - Sheba - I loved that cat too (weird huh - that they ended up with another one??). 

This cat is just SO HAPPY to see you.  She immediately purrs and when you stop petting her, she reaches out and taps on your leg - so gently and you just want to pet her FOREVER.  She is such a love bug ... I almost took her home this time ...

Tour de Fleece 2015

I don't have such lofty ideas for this year as I have in past years.  Just getting some spinning done is my goal for this one!

I have a small batt (0.9 oz) of Coopsworth, Alpaca and Silk that is a lot of fun to spin.

I joined Team Mirkwood and am using my Mirkwood spindles.

My lovely Mirkwood spindles!
