I finished spinning the Merino/tussah singles last night. It took three hours to finish off the pile of roving, then another half hour to rewind the bobbin onto another bobbin. I like to ply from rewound bobbins, so that the singles go together in the same direction they were spun- the first end of the singles gets plied first. It seems to make a smoother yarn. It was 11:00 by the time I finished, and I was tired.

That's the problem with spinning really fine. It takes forever to fill a bobbin. I'm not sure of the yardage on each bobbin, but it seems like miles!

Emma has been exploring a new pastime- feeding Cobalt (our dog) Cheerios. She was very cute last night right before dinner. She had her little bowl of Cheerios on the table to keep her occupied until dinner was ready, and she would eat one herself, then give one to Cobalt, eat one herself, etc. She also enjoys throwing things off her highchair tray. As soon as Emma gets into her chair, Cobalt runs over and takes up her station under the chair, poised and waiting for the treats from above.
