tdf day 1 and 2

Day 1
Into the Whirled's June club. Romney 4oz "cerulean Dreams."

I spun a total of 20 hours that day. Cara stayed right along beside me combing and carding the freshly washed wool that I plan to spin for A Spinner's Study.

Two singles rolled into a plying ball and the beginning of plying. I took this picture at 11:50. Just in time to post it to the tdf day one thread. Cara and I worked for 3 more hours after this picture to get it plied.

It tried to ply itself.

It fuzzed up and created balls of fuzz that chain linked the two ply's together.
After many failed attempts, swearing, hysterical exhausted laughter, and paper cuts, we decided to call it a night at 3am.

Netflix and DVD's watched: Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog (3rd watching), Dr Horrible's extras, A Hard Days' Night (? watching), a bunch of episodes of Fraggle Rock (2nd watching), Styx in concert, Simon & Garfunkel documentary, M*A*S*H documentary, tried to watch Legend but couldn't stomach it, and listened to Dr Horrible's cd several times.

Day 2

I slept in, then started plying again. It took me somewhere around 3 or 4 more hours to get this mess plied. My fingers are covered in rug burns and cuts but it got finished.

160 yards of 2 ply Romney.
