Still no big news on the pands cory eggs. Meaning no babies yet. I lost one of the eggs (the one we were watching, that I was sure was developing) to mold, unfortunately. Waaa! I'm still not sure if the remaining four are doing anything. I guess I'll let them go as long as I can. It's been six days since they were laid.
I do have fibery activity to report, shockingly! I spun for a while yesterday! I've been in such a slump recently. I brought the wheel out onto the back patio yesterday, and spun while Emma had fun with bubbles and on her swings.
(That's the spiffy denim rug I wove, under the wheel!) It was a lovely couple hours outside. The fiber is from the 2002 Sheep to Shawl event in Friday Harbor. It's a Romney cross that we dyed in the fleece. We didn't use it all at the Fair, and I snagged some of the uncarded leftovers. I carded it sometime in 2003, and found it again last fall when I was reorganizing my fiber closet.
It's very easy to spin, though typically Romney in it's coarseness. After plying, though, I think it'll be nice.
That's about halfway through the spinning session- I finished filling the bobbin last night before bed. Maybe I'll fill another tonight!
