Spinning FOs and a carded batt.

I have Spinning to show you!! I am still working on getting better pictures but it's coming along! :)

This first skein is the sock weight yarn that I spun from the superwash merino I carded at Manda's. I think I might need to convince her to let me have a couple more ounces. It's a three ply and I think it came out to about 150 yards. I think I need about 200 or so more to do a good pair of socks for myself. I'm sure Manda and I can work out a trade. :)
This second skein I've been working on for Tour de Fleece. It's a Ramboillett and it's navajo plied. I love how it came out and have already started spinning up the 2nd 2oz of it. Once I'm done than I'm going to knit this into a shawl for my sister Luz. I think she will love it!
Last night I got to bring home the drum carder that is owned by my weaving/spinning guild! It's a clemes and clemes and so far it's working good! I ran some of the dyed locks I have through it and it is SO pretty! As usual there is still some VM in it but it's so soft and lovely! I plan to spend some time tonight with the drum carder and card up some more batts from what I have dyed. I also scheduled a dye/fiber day with Manda next Sunday...yes...I think there is a theme of fiber days at Manda's lately. hehehe

This week at work has been super crazy, we are down a person in our dept and it's been SUPER busy! I'm glad SK called me today and offered to go to the grocery store and make me dinner tonight! I'm feeling a little clammy today which isn't good. Hopefully a good night sleep tonight will prevent me from getting sick!

Ok..hope you have a great day and don't forget to run over to the DOT post this week!
