I must be feeling better because I did this today.
It's like spinning Easter eggs. (I didn't dye this stuff. I bought it like this.) If you look closely, you can see a thick and thin sort of thing going on. After working for two years to learn how to spin evenly, now I'm figuring out how to do this instead. What's hardest for me is the random aspect. You may have noticed I'm a bit obsessive about order. (At least when it comes to patterns. My work space is another story.) This is a test spin for the Gear Yarn. Said gears still need prepped - little pointy bits trimmed off. Maybe this weekend.
Then, just as I was getting into it, the husbeast came home and I was forced to live up to what I said, and we took the Goober to the museum with her new glasses. At rush hour. Down town. Never doubt that I love this kid.
The glasses are REALLY working, because I was standing there reading about T Rexes and Allosaurs, and the Goober looked up, pointed, and said "LOOK!"
It's a fuckin' PTEROSAUR. AND I MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME. It is bigger than my Jeep! I do believe I said "Holy SHIT!" when I looked up and saw it. I said it loudly. People glared.
I'd say Mumma needs new glasses, but I just got a pair.
So we dragged home again, and I did a couple loads of laundry, and I should really get my butt to bed, but I wanna spin more singles.
Maybe tomorrow I'll finally get off my ass and cast on all those stitches, for the tapestry bag. My mother-in-law will be back in Ohio soon, so it'd be good if I caught up with her by then. Since we originally agreed to knit it together.
While I was getting the pterosaur photo off my camera, I spotted this one I snapped last summer.
I thought you guys would get a kick out of it.
