The ramblings of a fiber-affected single mother of twins who makes a living as a code monkey

One Crazy Fiber Lady


February 24th, 2014 · 2 Comments

I did quite a bit of spinning yesterday. I’ve split the 4 oz into thirds and have the first two done. I’m about to sit down and start the last bit while I watch the Bachelor.

 I included a standard Schact bobbin to show how very huge the bobbins for the Norm Hall are. They are immense! And yet the wheel is very fast. The hugeness makes it look like I’ve barely spun anything but there is well over an ounce each. They should all ply up to a nice fingering weight. Have to love the speed of a CPW with more than one bobbin, and a giant one at that!

Today only sucked a little. I went to the mall for lunch and did a little retail therapy. Made my first stop in a Vera Bradley store and picked up my very first of her bags. Much lighter than the leather Coach bag that I’ve been toting around. Though it is far more colorful than I am used to!

 Craft on!

    I got my first Vera Bradley bag for Christmas! Check out the two way tote. My Aunt was told it’s a big hit with “the knitters.” You can only get them online or an outlet because they don’t make them anymore. It’s a really cool bag!

    Ahh. . . The Bachelor
    I would much prefer that spinning fiber over Wan Pablo.
