This past Saturday, the MadTosh store hosted an ice cream social. I could only stay for the first half, but I had so much fun! There were tons of people there, a lot of which I knew. I didn't eat any of the ice cream, but I had a lot of fun shopping around, chatting, and enabling people to buy things. I came home with two skeins of Noro Taiyo sock yarn.
This blue/purple skein is one I actually have a plan for. It, along with a skein of madelinetosh's Tosh Merino Light, will become a Spectra by Stephen West.
This one has no plans, but it had to come home to live in the stash for a bit. Hey, I had a Groupon and had to spend $30, so I had to get something else! This was the skein I originally picked up for the Spectra, until I found a skein similar to my Tosh Merino Light at home and realized it didn't go well together.
Tour de Fleece (goal is 30 min of spinning daily):
Day 8 (July 7): 32 minutes
Day 9 (July 8): 44 minutes
Day 10 (July 9): 30 minutes
Today is a rest day for the tour, so I will not be spinning. Honestly, I'm glad,because I was getting tired of spinning. That's probably why I rarely spin regularly. I'd bet if I had a wheel and could blow through 4 oz. in a day like a lot of people have been doing this tour, I wouldn't get bored of it.
