Le Tour de Fleece is over. In order to make my goal of 30 hours of spinning I brought my Lendrum up to my bedroom on Sunday to spin near the air conditioner. I finished spinning the cormo/silk but still need to ply it. I put the silk aside because I didn't want to coat my bedroom in hot pink cobwebs. I pulled out Dazzle the llama, purchased last year at Oregon Flock and Fiber. Since all my spinning has been coming out too fat lately I went super-thin with the llama. I have 14 ounces (I think) so I'll be slowly spinning myself a big pile of lace-weight llama.
To entertain myself while spinning I put the first season of Pee-Wee's Playhouse which Wes checked out from the library. The kids vowed they had no interest in seeing it. But as I watched and screamed (for the secret word of the day) and laughed, they drifted over to see for themselves. I really had them hooked by the first Penny segment because they recognized the Aardman-style animation.
The weather has cooled--praise be! Tonight is Stitch 'n Pitch. I'll try to remember to bring my camera and actually take some pictures.
