I spun up the last four ounces of the Ramb x Cormo last night, and plied two bobbins full of three-ply. I'll probably ply up the rest of the singles tonight, then I'll have to do some more carding.

I may take a small break from spinning/carding, though, to finish the alpaca shawl. It's grown to the point now where each row takes about half an hour to knit. I just want it to be done. All I have left is three rows of the last pattern repeat then the top border, which is about 44 rows, half of which are unrelenting garter stitch. I hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend. I got a set of blocking wires last time I was off island, so I can get it all blocked and steamed and everything.

Finally, I'll leave you with a funny art photo- This is the outlet that I plug my laptop into in Shaun's lab, a fairly old building. Every time I see this outlet, it makes me laugh. The plugs look like surprised and yuck faces.

Oh how funny! I didn't notice the different "faces" on the outlets until you mentioned it. You're absolutely right!

Good luck finishing the shawl.
