My starting fiber was a hand dyed superwash merino/tencel blend. Looks like it ended up between lace and fingering weight once plied.
It was a lovely heap of fiber to work with, fast and smooth. Next up I'm starting in on some Ashland Bay Merino Silk blend, one of my favorites and it is a pity they have discontinued this line of fiber.
I'm hoping to get both bags of these lovely fibers spun and plied over the next few days. The only thing I have to do on the immediate horizon is can some pear conserves. Probably later this morning.The house will smell heavenly!
Before Spinzilla started I did manage to get the 10 yard hemp bath towel warp beamed on.
I didn't need DH at all and while my "warping valet" is pretty primitive, it does a good job.
I need to remember to make my warp bouts a bit smaller though in general.
I also got Spike to the vet for a check up.
He is having some problems with Pancreatitis and is on a special diet right now to help. His appetite and energy level have improved and he'll be going back next week for a recheck. Fingers crossed we see the physical improvement mirrored in his blood work.
My little road warriors have gotten out for a walk every morning.
The group changes but Mandy is always there. That long back benefits from good muscle tone and the vet tells me daily walks are the best way to go. She loves it and there is always a great discussion as to who the other one or two "warriors" will be. It was Hazel and Robin on Monday.
While there is no sewing going on this week, a new pattern did arrive. This is a vintage pattern that has been copied and updated. Pretty cute I think although I'll have to size it way down for mini Mandy.
The stash has some very nice wool scraps I've saved over the years and will have a go at this in the coming weeks. Oh and I did start in on the linen jacket. Not much done but next week I'll finish it up along with the holiday towel warp on Ziva the Louet David loom.
I think that about covers what's happening (or not happening!), this week. The news, of course, is depressing as hell and I'm just watching it, imagine living some of what's going on.
It all calls for multiple parting shots!
