That trait was something I wanted to have today. Since my surgery in January, my body's been going through a gradual change as the hormone levels drop. So while I still have my ovaries, I'm going through menopause. Today I was experiencing hot flashes that made me want to shave my head. But my hair at this point is a nice length with plenty of curl. So could I just shave my head now and wake up with my hair back tomorrow morning?
I took the rovings I got from BSG to work today and couldn't resist test spinning some of the Ferndale Farm fiber while waiting for a report to run. When I got home I had to do some on Goody Baynes. It's a hot sultry summer evening but how can one resist practicing on such yummy fiber? Yes it's fat but it's reasonably consistent. We'll see how it turns out.
I've been putting off posting any pictures of Ted's yarn being knitted up because I want the pattern to be a surprise. With knitting any lace in the round it looks like what Franklin calls used cheesecloth. I attempted to put a plate in but snapped off one of the point protectors in the process and dropping a couple of stitches on the edge (thank goodness for sticky yarn!). I'll have to go back and make sure I picked up the stitches correctly (fortunately it's on a plain knit row with a few--nope, can't tell ya). The color changes are subtle, ranging from teal to turquoise as he plied the two colors together. He told me it was uneven in thickness but so far it's been pretty consistent and not too whacked out from fingering weight. It's also knitting very nicely, not splitting or being weird. We'll see how it turns out after dressing the piece. **Shameless propaganda warning** Ted's posted that the Fibrefest North 2007 registration is now open. To find out more, go here.
Off to go jump into a cold bath.
