We Interupt The Quilt Show Posts For........

Cubs Win!!!!! Cubs Win!!!! They won their division on Saturday.

SnoopyHappyDance

I know I'm late, but Friday really wiped me out. Not a Cubs fan? Not a baseball fan? Sorry.

I now, Queen of Wipsluts, have a challenge before me. Remember the wool in this post. I have one more bobbin to get spun up, ply, then get those socks knitted by playoffs. Will I be able to stick with it? Not get diverted by all my other lovely projects. Check back later and we shall see.

This photo is as of yesterday afternoon. I finished the second bobbin last night. I will set the twist when I kettle dye to even out the dye.

Now for a contest. Guess how many yards are on this plying bobbin. Leave your answer in comments with someway for me to reach you by Saturday. The answer closest will win this skein of kettle dyed, by me, lace weight merino, 440 yards. If there is a tie, I will look through my bins for more lace weight.

Here's a hint, there's five ounces of two-ply lace weight merino/angora/silk.

If you have been following my blog this year, then you know my bunny Dammit is an enthusiastic Led Zeppelin fan. He was a bad bunny a week ago and chewed the satellite cable, so no Zeppelin for a week. Saturday, I relented and played How The West Was Won cds. When Dammit heard Moby Dick, he ran out from under the secretary (his daytime den) and bounced about the living room doing triple binkies. I picked up my digital camera, but smart arse that he is, he flopped down.

Sunday night I stayed up trying to capture evidence. Ran out of batteries twice. Grrrrr Please excuse rusty closet door, it's from the rain off Gd's stroller. I get to fixing it one of these days.

Hope you enjoy, it took all afternoon to get it on You tube.
