I've been spinning like a mad woman, along with working on a pair of socks.... but more about those socks later.
One skein of my new handspun I love, one I hope to love eventually. Hmmmm....can you guess which one is which? I LOVE the fact that both of these are over 400 yards - traditional 3-ply. That was my goal. The pink one barely made it, coming in at 401 yards, but the other one is 439 yards. They are both a nice sock weight fingering. The fiber is Finn, which may not be good for socks, so, we'll see. But at least I accomplished my goal.
BG and I went to the Zoo today. We had a wonderful time, complete with wonderful weather. He fell asleep on the way home - totally exhausted. He was such a good little guy - and totally enjoyed himself. Well, there was that brief moment of panic when he realized he was actually ON the train!! Eventually the choke hold he had on me subsided, and he enjoyed the trip around the zoo. In fact when we had to get off, he wanted "more". If only all the worries of the world were so short lived..... I'm not sure, but I think some of the enthusiasm he displayed for the animals was totally for my benefit. I'm sure I made a fool out of myself encouraging his "Ohhhhhs and Ahhhhhs"! Of course, the gift shop is stocked with one less giraffe this evening and the chipmunks in the picnic area will sleep with full little tummies tonight - full of string cheese!
Ahhhhh ..... Life's soooo good! :)
