I finally finished spinning the green stuff. I think this has been sitting beside the wheel since, gasp June. Ok, so I’m not a fast spinner. There is 568 yards of Navajo plied that is around 13 wpi. It’s wool but I don’t have any other specifics on it. The tag that came with it said spectrum. Now I’m putting it in the stash pile. Just wanted to make note here what it is so I don’t forget.
My next spinning project is the blue stuff. I got this from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I don’t have much of a local source for this kind of habit so I get almost everything at the MSWF. I’m going to double check my receipts to see who I got this from because if you look real close you will notice there is little pieces of grass all through this roving. I’ve been spending a lot of time picking it out. I do love the color though.
I’m currently waiting on the yarn to do the pirate socks. I have to admit it feels really weird to not have some kind of sock project going on.
On the family front we made some Wookie Cookies. Dax was the helper on this adventure. I’m not really sure if we are suppose to post the recipe from the book because of copyright stuff but I did see that on this web page the recipe is published. I don’t think we got the exact same cookies as the recipe calls for. Dax mixes all the stuff up in bowl and asks me if I will stir it up because she is tired of stirring. So I start stirring and stirring and stirring. There is constantly a bit of flour in the bowl I can’t seem to get to mix in. I ask her if she is sure she put the right amount of flour in and she says yes, 2 ½ cups. I’m looking at the recipe and I let her know it says 2 1/4. Her comment to this is what’s a ¼ of a cup. I also noticed she had cinnamon all over the counter. I think it got a larger dose of cinnamon to but that’s fine because the cookies turned out pretty good.
Last but not least here is a snap shot of the shower Rudy was working on. He is done with this one. I noticed it is kind of hard to take a picture of a shower. There is not a lot of room in it.
