My 8 ounce baby...

I finally finished the 8oz of corriedale-rambouillet combo I have been spinning for the Tour de Fleece.  Gee willickers, it took much longer than I had hoped and is so kinky, x-rated kinky!  I am sticking with it as a single right now...just because I have no clue what to ply her with.
See my initial thought was to spin 4 oz on 2 different bobbins and ply.  Then I thought, what the hay, let's test the bobbin capacity on this little Spinolution Mach II wheel and see if we can get all 8 on it....well I did!  Now I'm stumped.

I spent most of today's TDF time prepping fiber for tomorrow.  I believe I will spin this batt (same combo, different color) on my Cherub wheel.  I KNOW I won't get 8 oz on a bobbin, but will let her get some use.

I went to a jewelry class tonight and made a cute pair of dangly earrings that I will have to take pics of...since I was not productive enough to get that done before hopping on here.  I learned how to make loops and wrap the wire and it wasn't as hard as I imagined.  I see more dangly earrings in my future....crap, there goes more money!

I also was able to steal about 30 minutes to knit today, while watching Rescue Me on Netflix.  Have I told you lately how much I LOVE Netflix...and don't get me started on Hulu....man I have issues with TV.  See, I like having the noise and I feel like I am not such a sorry booger if I am doing something productive while I watch...but actually half the time I don't see the screen, just hear the noise.  Anyway, that is a whole visit on the psych couch..don't you think????

Okay, time to take earring pics and eat my sub.  Who is bringing over ice cream??????????
