3rd Day of Christmas

In looking for something else in my stash I spied two plastic bags with partial spinning projects. All total, that’s three more bobbins to finish. How fitting on the 3rd Day of Christmas.

I think this is Polwarth fiber, can’t find the label or the vendor. Anyway, I have two finished bobbins, the third started, and enough fiber for a fourth bobbin.

As the label states, this is Polwarth/Rose/Silk blend fiber from Bethanne at Allons-y! Fiber Arts. I have one bobbin finished and another braid to spin.

As for the current spinning project…I misremembered how much BFL/Tussah fiber I have. I will not be spinning two bobbins with five ounces each. I have just shy of another eight ounces of fiber. So, that will be four total bobbins, approx four ounces each, of BFL/Tussah to spin. I’ll have the first one finished sometime today. I think.

I didn’t knit like I planned yesterday so I’ve got about half of the last mini skein to finish on the cowl. I spent most of yesterday afternoon puttering around on the laptop, playing games on Pogo and watching reruns of West Wing.

Today is chiropractor day. We both need adjustments and should probably pick up a few things at the grocery store on our way home. I have enough turkey breast left that I can make a pot of soup and there is a quart of turkey broth in the pantry that Audrey canned last year that I need to use. I’ve got carrots, celery, red onion, and egg noodles to toss in the pot.

It’s time to think about breakfast and get some more knitting done. Then I’ll work on my spinning this afternoon. Have a blessed Tuesday, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
