I made some more yarnahol! This little number is made up of 85% wool, 15% mohair, homespun and hand-dyed. It's 60 yards and weighs 2 ounces. When I dyed the roving I was trying to make colors of summer berries like raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, plus grapes and peaches. I guess I wanted some fruit then. Man I could go for a fruit salad now too!
More good news. The thread finally arrived! I get to experiment plying with thread now. Yeah! How do I do that again?
But the best news of all: (heralding trumpets) Soprano Spinner has offered to help me submit my yarn to the L.A. County Fair!
It means a lot to me because of my affection for the fair and how last year I promised myself I would figure out how to participate this year. And then when I blew it and missed the deadline I felt like a loser. And then someone reaches out a helping hand? Let's have a toast to the good people of the world. Cheers!
Moral of the day: even if you feel like you are a complete idiot and make big mistakes, someone may take pity on you, so that in the end it all works out. A thousand thanks!
