These next few days will be interesting. Hubbo is leaving on his annual golf trip this afternoon so I'll be single parenting. I'm referring to this 2 week period as the lifestyles of the lame and unemployed. By coincidence, he was invited to 2 sporting events (basketball & hockey) last week by friends with season tickets and this week is the golf trip. Not a bad gig if you can get it.
I'm not really as resentful as I probably sound. I actually encouraged him not to bow out of the trip. I look at it like this. Some time soon, hubbo will find a new job and he'll be busy trying to make a good impression on his new employers and have much less vacation time to play with than I will. There will be many wonderful, fibery events this fall and when I give him the list of stuff I'd like to attend he'll cheerfully tell me to go have fun. See - it all works out in the end.
Speaking of stuff working out. How do you like this? This is the Bonkers top that I spun last week. It's 4 oz of superwash merino in a color they call Dragonfly. It turned out to be about 299 yds after I spun it all up. Plenty of yardage for a pair of socks for Stinkerbelle.
I thought that it was more even before I gave it a good soak and hung it to dry. I still think that it's more even than earlier efforts and it's finer too. In any case, it's not bad considering that it's been quite a while since Charlotte and I have spent quality time together. I enjoyed this spinning very much although, after all of the BFL, this merino just isn't as pleasing to spin. Next I'll finish spinning the BFL from my color family project. I can't wait.
