During quiet time when Bill rested and didn't need me, I spun the pretty navy roving.
I spun up both bobbins and even began the plying.
I spun off and on for hours while watching Rosemary and Thyme on Netflix.
I like to ply pretty tightly so that it will make a good sock yarn. The softer (looser) the ply, the more easily it is to have a sock wear too quickly.
These socks will go to my best son-in-law, Bruce.
Now that the big quilt is done, I dug out some unfinished projects.
I put the rest of the clamshell shapes together and have them all pieced now.
Then I trimmed the edges to make them squared and even!
This will be the center of a medallion quilt I have in mind!
