Spring Break fun

The "to do" list is complete for the day....woohoo...except for a little packing later....yep another trip....this time to see my dear brother and sister in law!!!  no math involved!!  

I have some spinning to show you....I hoped you won't be bored over the next few days because there is a LOT of fiber to show off!

About a week ago I graduated to the fast flyer on my wheel...this means that twist goes into the fiber quicker....yesterday I was on the fastest setting I have and still waiting for the twist....crazy huh!  Who would of thought that I would think about getting the very fast flyer?

This is what I call the never ending brown fiber!  My first two skeins from Lindy were this fiber (it came with my wheel) and here are 3 more.  Unfortunately the first two skeins are a little thicker, but I still think I can make it work.  Let's see...these three skeins are 6.8 oz and 690 yards.

I have 5 oz and 400 yards from the earlier spinning....so I think if I alternate rows (or just do two different projects) I should be in good shape...maybe a vest? who knows? by the way, does handspun count as stash?

Love it.

Nope. It's not stash...it's spun with love awaiting more love!

Of course it counts as stash. After all, it's yarn yet to be knitted. It ranks higher than just any old yarn, though.

Ummm, 'fraid so :)

Totally stash... but isn't stash a wonderful thing?

Oh, handspun totally doesn't count as stash! Just like sock yarn doesn't count either! =)

I think handspun does count as stash. It makes me feel the same way about having too much when I get a skein done!

If it's in the house it's stash and something to look forward to. I bet a vest would be really nice
