so, I consider this video to be in the same category as train wrecks. You can't help but watch in disgust/fascination. There's nothing blatantly wrong about it... but probably would be considered NSFW. I just don't understand men. At all. The gang at weebls made a parody of it. Which is both lame and hilarious rolled into one funny taco.

What kind of yarn are you?

So, as an addendum, I had some questions about limegrass on the spinning section of the Craftster forums. The metreage of the yarn is 1212.5m (approximation based on the equation: 100m/8g= x/97g). The WPI (wraps per inch) is ~35. I <3 the colour of this yarn so much; it makes me keekle on the inside.

First Post!

Woo! So, my first post for my blog. What to say, what to say...

So, I actually made the blog like... two weeks ago, but I've mostly been busy studying - first for my comprehensive final (which I freaking aced!), and now for my PEBCs and OSCE (in pharmspeak it means my liscensing exams which leads to a big ol' EEEK!).

So, this stuyding thing... leaves me stressed. Which means that I need things to de-stress. Which means I've been at my spinning wheel a lot when I'm not studying. And by not studying it means I'm slacking from housework which I oh so despise.

Oh well. I'll soon be moving to a place with laminate flooring and *gasp* a DISHWASHER. Oh dishwasherygoodness... how I've missed thee in these long years past...

Anyhow. Enough of the boring prattle. What everyone likes is pictures. I know I like pictures. So here's some yarn porn of what I've spun.

This is some thick to thin sorta sock weight yarn.
Two ply: centre pull ball method
Atomic Melon roving from Spunky Eclectic
Type: Wool blend

This is a very fine sock weight or leaning more to a lace weight yarn.
Three ply: navajo plied so it should have some stripey action going on
Roving from: hoxierice as part of a Craftster hand dyed roving swap
Type: Superwash Merino. Soooo very soft and delightful to work with

This is a thickish to thinish sockish weight yarn.
Two ply: centre pull ball method
Roving from: The Wool Emporium; hand painted by me with Wilton food dyes
Type: Perendale. Kind of itchy and hard to draft.

Well, I think that's it for me tonite. Probably time to go and sleep.
