Kind of excited and not at the same time... thinking about entering to win an ashford blending board.. but I don't know just yet. Only a few days left so I better get on it I guess. If I do wind up going for it, I will let you know if I get it, if not, you will never hear about it again :p

Aside from that fun, been working on getting some of this wool I've spun knit into a pair of winter socks for my Husband. I thought I would have enough, but I'm starting to re-think that now..

Also placed an order over the weekend, so EXCITED!!, for a bundle of new dye. Really been wanting to dye this merino/tussah silk blend that I have. Wondering if I ought to spin it then dye it, or dye it then spin it. Only problem is, I don't know if I want a single, or to ply it... and if I ply it, how many?? I'm still hung up on Navajo(chain) ply but thinking I might have to try an actual three ply using three strands. If I do it this way, I can dye it using either three different colours or different shades of one colour. So many choices!!!! Mind you, I still have a pound of corridale and a littler over half a pound of southdown too. Oh the fun I will have!!! And don't worry, pictures will be posted!!!

Oh yeah... Poor thing is mostly done save for the finish. I don't know yet if I want to add more to it or just leave it as is...

Ok, so I broke down, convinced my Husband to take a pic of me and my wheel to submit. Too late to go back now, so fingers are crossed and I am hoping that I might actually have a chance to win.
