It's 6:10 am and I've already got 2.5 hours of blogging and blog reading under my belt. That's what happens when you wake up at 3:40. I would have gone back to sleep but a curious *whirring* sound got me out of bed to investigate.

The *whirring* noise was Scott finishing up his first plied yarn. Between the time I went to bed and the time it woke me up, he had finished up a few bobbins of singles and plied them in to a yarn. He has this new medicine that is causing insomnia, poor thing. It isn't fair to have both insomnia and hypersomnia at the same time, but at least he is being productive. Too bad he's supposed to be at work in an hour and a half. I don't think he's going to make it.

Scott's new yarn is lovely, but both spinner and fiber left a minor disaster in their wake. The fiber is a from the first sheering of a colored finn cross. I carded about half the fleece, but those curly tip ends still held an unbelievable amount of dust that came out during spinning and finishing. I was taking the day off anyway (sort of) so I suppose I'll clean that up while he's at work.

My sort-of day off involves a somewhat ambitious agenda of doing the homework for my class on website development, pulling 5#s of roving in to .5 oz bundles to sell as felting fiber, cleaning (ugh), spinning some thick and thin for Green With Indie, and either rehanking yarn I dyed last week or hanking up undyed yarn to dye tomorrow and Thursday. So really, not like a day off at all.

I hope this post posts okay. The cursor keeps jumping and it tells me I have HTML errors.
