No doubt this is what Lucy does every Monday. Tough life.
Me? I took full advantage of my day off. Took Xena (my car) for oil change and safety inspection, did some cleaning up at home, went out Christmas shopping and to lunch with my dad, then to the grocery store.
Then back home to spin a bit.
A close-up of what I done spun:
This is a 50/50 blend of Black Welsh Mountain wool and alpaca. I loves me a good Black Welsh Mountain wool!
I got my two sampler packs of natural colored wools and British/NZ breed wools in the mail today from Spirit-Trail — Thanks for the great service, Jen!
I want to spin enough to make a shawl (same type as the one I’m knitting now) and knit it in stripes of the natural color wools.
Speaking of the shawl I’m knitting now, it’s nearing completion. Remeber the silk roving from yesterday? It’s all spun and plied into yarn, and I’m knitting it held together with mohair on to my shawl. A close-up:
I love these colors!

Is the sun over the yardarm? I think it’s margarita time.
