Spinning Out of Control

I'm on a bender. I sat down in my office and picked up my knitting this morning. I glanced over at my wheel. Nothing on the bobbin. The wheel seemed to speak to me. I'm so naked and alone. Then it caught my eye. Alpaca. Two ounces. And Coopworth. Also two ounces. I told myself I would just card a little. Next thing I know it's dinner time and I have this.

127 yards of worsted (?) weight alpaca/Coopworth blend. It's so soft and fluffy. I love it. I want to make fingerless mitts from it. I hope there's enough.

I also took some of the twist off of the first few skeins of the pink Romney. Now all the skeins are having a bath.

Hey, the bobbin on my spinning wheel is empty...
