Will wonders never cease?

I bet you didn’t think you would see any handspun on here again ever!

But, I got some plying done this weekend on some roving I have had sitting around forever!

4oz of domestic wool from Poppy Flower Fibers in the Royal Flush colorway.

This spun very nicely, but when I started to ply it, well … I got sidetracked, now I wish I hadn’t!

4oz yielded 281 yards at 17 wpi!

Maybe I will ply the other 2 full bobbins I have for next week – totally different colorway! Since I am still toying with the idea of going to Maryland Sheep & Wool I figure I better do some spinning! Maybe I will spin something new tonight after yoga!

Speaking of yoga – awhile back I mentioned my weight loss goals. Just a quicky update – I am now down 21.6 lbs. this means that I am ALMOST halfway to my goal – more importantly, I have lost 10% of my starting body weight. Now…to figure out what I will reward myself with…suggestions? (I feel great about this loss – I am happier with my body and that is what is important – not necessarily the reward!)

It’s absolutely gorgeous and reminds me of the iris Cristi posted this morning. Any connection?

Ooooooh purty handspun! I don’t suppose you’d consider Ruby the reward :D Has The Yarn come in at Fuzzy Mabel yet?

Very pretty handspun! As for prezzies…you should buy something pretty and/or shiny. :)

Yay 10% Congratulations! That’s fabulous! You need to go get your red star from Lisa. You know how she loves giving the stars. =)

That yarn is bee-u-tiful! Great job on it! Also, great job on getting your 10%! That’s awesome! (Ok, so I’ll stop with all the exclamation points!)

Great job on the weight loss goals! Pretty handspun there too! :)

Tantej is right! It totally needs the name of that gorgeous Iris!

Wow, that’s some amazing yarn. I’m all agog. Congrats on the loss of weight, you reward yourself with an awesome pair of shoes…

Why are you having a problem thinking of a reward… (congrats on weight loss by the way)…you’re going to the Maryland show, you don’t think you’ll find enough inspiration? :) Calorie free and high fiber…perfect diet food!
