I am exhausted and in the middle of what can only be termed as Work and also Teenager Hell. I don't have a lot to blog about because I am just making incremental progress on projects you've already heard all about but, I can say, I did this. 2 ply sock yarn that actually looks and behaves like sock yarn. It is the right weight, the ply is for the most part as tight as I want it to be, it did mostly what I asked it to do, and it is the first thing I have done with intention from A-Z where that intention actually worked out.
The biggest thing? I spun it on my wheel and I plied it on my wheel. I have been, up till now, plying with a spindle after spinning the singles on the wheel. Not anymore, baby.
I can ply. I can ply. I can ply! /peter pan>
It is imperfect, but it is pretty damn exciting all the same, because it is a milestone.
