Yesterday, Richard walked in the door moments after I pulled my bread from the oven. I can't remember exactly what he said, but essentially it was something like "wow that smells awesome" And it did. I rate that aroma right up there with the smell of newborn babies and lanolin rich wool. I used King Arthur white whole wheat and unbleached all purpose flours (the only flour I'll bake with!) and also some local goldenrod honey that I picked up at the shearing festival a while back. Again, the recipe was from Two Sheep, and has already passed the taste test!
Last night once the kids were off to bed, I set about plying my finished bobbins. I still have a few "fat spots" but far fewer than previous attempts. And I continue to have issues getting the yarn onto my bobbin (you can tell, can't you?) In some places it goes on loosely for some reason, others not so much. Weird. Part of the problem, I'm sure, is that I get into the rhythm and forget to sit up and switch to the next hook. If only WooleeWinder would make a model for a Baynes wheel, I'd be golden! I only have a bit more to ply then its time to wind, wash and hang to dry. For what its worth, this is plying up somewhere between lace and fingering (I was shooting for lace weight)
Edited to add.. Its done! (Approximately 320 yards)
