Plying


Most times when I ply I end up with stuff left on one bobbin (sometimes quite a bit), this time I had 3 bobbins with leftovers all in various shades of rosey pinks, so with a full bobbin of merino-nylon also in close to same shade of rosey pinks I plied the 3 with the merino. Ended up with way more than I thought I would, just over 1300 yards on the three. All are close to fingering weight, not yet sure what I will do with the three.

After 47 days of sub arctic weather a Chinook finally blew in, instead of temps in the -20 to -30 range its now +5 with a strong south wind, even had a day and a half of rain. Snow in yard is about 50% gone and my driveway would be what I call challenging, wet ice, no thanks will stay home.

Just put Bisquick-ed chicken tenders in the oven, first dipped in a beaten egg then the Bisquick mix (with a bit of onion soup mix, paprika, seasoned salt, pepper) wish I had salad fixings, nothing except a few baby carrots. When I do get to town (its been since November 17th) first thing I will have when I get home will be a large salad.

My planned trip into town was put on hold when Chinook blew in, roads were a mell of a hess and so canceled dentist app't and ate last of lentil soup last night.

  1. Love the yarn! I'm hoping to ply off some partially filled bobbins to open up space for a large project. Mine aren't likely to coordinate so nicely....

    Sorry about the nasty roads, and hope you make it to town for salad fixings soon.
