Handspun Friday - FCK Early American

I can't believe it, but it snowed all day yesterday, with a few sunny breaks. We spent a lot of time outside. At the same time it was warm and the snow was melting throughout the day at almost the same rate it came down. This morning though there were flurries again, with the sun coming out at the same time.

That's Happy's ears you see in the picture.

March 22- early morning

He's squinting a little here. Denny had to stay inside, because he was barking mad, I mean barking like a mad dog, when he saw the camera in my hands, and it was too early for that ruckus. Maggie's still sleeping.

Now about todays handspun yarn.

FCK-Fiber Club October 2011-5oz Polwarth-Early American

It's FatCatKnits Fiber Club, October 2011, 5oz Polwarth, colorway "Early American". I made it into 2-ply yarn, 488yds.

I'm still spinning away for the Extreme Plying SAL for Southern Cross Fiber, but one of my fingers shows some signs of wear and tear, mostly it's slized open where the freshly spun fiber runs over it, before the wheel pulls it onto the bobbin. Which means I have to take longer breaks to let it heal. Oh well, there's always knitting, right?

Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm just learning to spin and finding all your handspun so inspiring! I've always loved the puppy pictures.

How nice to have a little special time with Happy. Maggie and Gilly are alike in their love of sleeping inside!!
