I haven't had a chance to post. Things have been busy.
Day 5 - Weds. the 6th
Had to do a lot of work. Think I only spun about a half hour or so.
Day 6 - Thurs. the 7th
Spent some time spinning. Can't recall exactly how much.
Day 7 - Friday the 8th
Didn't get a ton of spinning done. Spun about a half hour in the morning. Had a ton of work to do before taking vacation. So I didn't get done until about 9:30. So spent about a half hour to 45 minutes on spinning.
Weighted the fiber. Thought it was close. But still had 1 1/4 oz left! But getting there.
I actually may have some more pics from this day. But the net connection is a bit iffy where I am staying. So I suspect I will post additional pics in a later post. Otherwise, I won't get this posted!
Day 8 - Sat. the 9th
Spent 4+ hours in the car. Drove to the Adirondacks to drop my daughter off at an overnight camp for a five nights. Spent the day with hubby and my little guy. And then spent the night at a hotel.
Day 9 - Sun. the 10th
Got a good chunk of spinning time after arriving at our final destination in the Adirondacks. Finished spinning my singles of the Beautiful Nightmare Loop Bump. Love it.
My thought was that I would start on the next Bump. But I didn't have an empty high speed bobbin! Oops. So I figured I could ply the Into the Whirled Into The Whirled 50/50 Tibetan Yak Merino to get it off the bobbin.
Note to self... Don't ply in the dark when you want to keep the colors district. *laugh* I didn't do a great job with that...
Day 10 - Mon. the 11th
Finished plying the Into The Whirled 50/50 Tibetan Yak Merino in the Vampires of Venice colorway. Did somewhat better with the plying. But the purple and brown are close enough that with a shady cabin, I didn't do great. But I still think it will look pretty cool. *fingers crossed*
I want to let it rest a bit before skeining it. But digging in my bag, I found the Hobbidedhoy Battlings that I had started before the TdF. So I can skein that and free up the bobbin! *laugh*
Other Bits -
I packed a bunch of different Into The Whirled fiber on the just in case theory. I really don't think I am going to get that far...but who knows. I did take the 8 oz. of 221b that I have. But unless I get the other Bump done in a day or two, there is no way I will have enough time to complete it. I brought a bag of Bits that I bought as well as 4 oz in the Rhinebeck colorway. We shall see. I suspect I was overly optomistic about getting more spun! *laugh*
Since I will be away Days 19-23, anything not completed by day 18 is unlikely to get completed. I can try some wheels at SSK. But I am not bringing my wheel. I am transferring flights & fear it getting lost. Should I ever get the opportunity to go again, I would drive if I want to bring my wheel. *smile*
