    Hi all - I posted over on the Roving Regulars but wanted to wish everyone happy spinning. I got butterflies thinking about today and I made a bit of progress so all is well.

        Yay for a clean house prior to spinning - well done!

        Yah, it did cut into my spinning time, but I can relax and enjoy it much better if housework is done!

      Good Morning! Well, it was a good thing yesterday was a SdF Day of Rest, my hands were still sore from the spinning and plying I did the previous few days! I did finally pick up a crochet hook last night and was able to do a few half-hexies. Hands feel good today, so I think the rest did a world of good. Perhaps I need to set a time limit instead of thinking of it as a minimum???

        Are you sure it's overplied ('cause it looks awesome to me!)? Did you wash it yet? Beautiful - it will look great worked up! (I forgot yesterday was a rest day so now I don't feel so bad about only working on a couple of miscellaneous spinning chores.) I'm glad your hands are up to it today - hope you can resist overdoing it (but that is so hard when you're having a good time).

        I haven't swatched it, but it is washed. Now I know why people weave...to get rid of their handspun that doesn't feel wearable!!!!

        Have you ever tried running it back through the wheel to remove some of the ply twist? I know people who do that all the time and I think I did it once. You have to mount the skein on a swift and then treadle clockwise (if you plied counterclockwise) - of course one would try a little and see if it's better.

      Happy Tuesday spinners! As we were discussing What To Watch along the lines of Tour de France, I offer up a different kind of "spinning" and I hope you enjoy this take on it:

        That was spectacular! I'm glad they didn't get run over by the sheep!

        PurlgirlButtons I agree - I am shocked at what they did, with only the necessary special equipment. Glad you could watch.
