I'm very happy with this skein. It's not quite my first skein off the spinning wheel, but it's definitely the nicest so far. For my previous attempt, I overspun one of the singles by a long shot, so the skein looks really mangy. This, however, looks nice and balanced. I'm quite happy I've finally figured out plying satisfactorily.
You might be wondering why I haven't taken any pictures of the Fiesta Feet socks yet. Well, I can't find one of them. Hopefully it will turn up soon so that I can take their picture. Perhaps the one is simply camera shy.
The cats were in this pose this afternoon, with Mab's back leg thrown over Spoot's back. I guess they found it really comfortable.
This was a shot from Pigtown Fling, a huge contra dance weekend in Covington, Kentucky. It was so much fun I can't even begin to describe it, nor can I really tell you what exactly contra dance is. All I can tell you is to go find your local contra dance and give it a try if you haven't already. No previous experience or classes needed!
