Whose Idea Was This, Anyway?

How many yards can one person spin in one month?

I think it's time that I admit that I had NO CLUE that the Tour de Fleece is as long as it is. Granted, I did read the dates, guidelines, etc, but I really had no idea what an utterly wonderful time suck this would become! I've been averaging at least one hour per day.

Saturday, it was bad.

I watched the entire Season 2 of the Tudors in under 24 hours. While spinning. And perhaps a bit of knitting. Do you see?

Los Monos Locos/The Crazy Monkeys, from the toe up
Knit on US 0s, using Ms. Babs Yummy Sock in Holly

Two finished cuffs.

You all know what this means. I've finished a pair of socks.

And hey, look at this!

A swatch! Done with my own handspun. Will wonders never cease.

Spinning updates to come tomorrow.

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Loving those monkeys!! Also, the swatch came out great!

As for "whose idea"? Um.... er.... that would be YOU! HA! I have yet to post anything on there even though I've been spinning. I am a bad bad girl.

At least, today (Monday) is a day off spinning. Isn't that good news?

Yeah, I feel you. I cannot believe how much time I've spent spinning. I wish it was just an hour. /sigh

Great socks!
