No, I didn't have an accident on our snow covered roads. I was perplexed last night when the city sent the snow plows out at 1 in the morning. Now that doesn't bother me because I'm just getting off work at that time, but I'm sure it annoyed all of my neighbors who work the day shift. And, um, duh...the street has cars parked everywhere up and down the street at night. There's not a sole parked out there during the day because they're all at work. As a result, the no parking side of the street got plowed (nice), but the parking allowed side is still deep with snow.
Wednesday was a slowwwwww work day for me. And I do mean slow, so I did quite a bit of spinning last night while I waited for the hospice hot line to ring. It never did. Well really, I wasn't technically spinning, I was plying. Although there are only a few votes for the yarn selection for the mitts, it looks like the hand spun is winning the vote. I thought that photo I showed you would have let you know it wasn't quite done (you know...still on the bobbins). It still needed to be plied and the chocolate yarn needed a bath. To be exact, it took six baths to come clean. There's a chance that I'll fall a wee bit short on the brown yarn, but there's more fiber where that came from and will only take a few hours to spin up.
Maybe the phones will be just as they were last night. Now that would be a miracle.
If you haven't voted on the yarn I'll use for my mitts, have at it. The poll is in the top left corner.
I'm now ready for whatever you choose.
