I have a perfectly good excuse for getting this up with only two hours left in Handspun Monday. A new baby in the family decided Father's Day would be a perfect choice for her birthday, which it was, except that now she's been born before I could finish her blanket that I'm making. *sigh* But anyway she took precedence over blogging, so now I am finally getting some quality time with my camera, my laptop, and my blog after getting sufficient quality time with the new arrival. Onward!
So you've seen Zaphod's new paint job. Now you get to check out Ford :D
I apologize for the crappiness of the photos, especially that last one. Oh and I should mention that some of the stars are glow in the dark. Oh yes. I'm so excited, and pleased with how he turned out. He damn well better have turned out the way I wanted, he took long enough to paint. Geesh. So what do you think? Teahee...
And the actual handspun... Currently on Merriweather I'm spinning Happy Hippie soy silk in California Dreamin'. It looks like this:
Ahem. Anyway. Once spun, this gloriously soft, brilliantly firey, and somewhat static-y roving looks like this:
I honestly can't spin it any thicker than that. It's so much fun. I think I need more of this stuff, in every color. Eeee!
By the way, I've started listening to a podcast called Stash and Burn. It's entertaining, great stuff about patterns and yarns and various ways to use up your stash. If I keep enjoying it, I'll link to it... (also I'm too lazy to go looking for the link right now)
Well, I hope the pics made up for me being late. Next week I'll post in a more timely fashion, I promise...
