fiber: AA Norwegian Wheel

Spinning my wheels...

So, I skeined off the 2 yarns I spun at NTIF (from ritaspins37 batts) - the green measures in at 95 yards of 2-ply, at approx. 24 WPI, and the blue at 88 yards of 2-ply at approx. 22 WPI. :boggle: Not bad for demo-spinning!

I also washed and blocked the purple/green/blue skein last night, and skeined it off this morning. *It* came in at 285 yards of 2 ply (and I think 24 WPI, but I'm just guesstimating here). I still have at least 1/2 pound to spin up - I'm hoping to get another shawl out of it, for a clan cousin (she's willing to pay! Whoopee!!)

And, I'm so blonde sometimes it scares me. :grin: I just realized - we have a scanner at work! I can scan my logo and use it on my cards/skein wrappers/yarn tags! Doh!! :lol: Guess what I'll be doing later today? :grin:

Hair: Been using the MM routine since March 1. I am impressed. As long as I remember to rinse really well, and shampoo twice, my hair looks *awesome* (if I don't - it looks good, but it's not blonde-ish). It's soft, and shiny, and feels thicker. We'll see what the tape measure says at the end of the month before I decide if I'm going to keep this up - they are expensive products.
