One more day please?!

I’ve done it, I’ve reached the point where I’m physically starting to feel the burn out from work. You know, my day job that doesn’t involve anything yarny? I feel like all I do is beg for more time to get everything accomplished, it kind of sucks.

Ah well, the bills have to be paid and until I can figure out how to take over the world with yarn this is my reality.

That said, I had a very productive weekend yarn-wise and am pleased with what I accomplished:

Tour de Fleece Day 19

A while ago my friend Carrie asked me about handspun dog fur. I have spun dog fur, my husband’s mom owns two gorgeous Samoyed’s that keep me well supplied!

Carrie sent me fur from two dogs that belonged to her aunt and uncle, Maggie & TJ. Their fur is very soft and pretty long, a lot softer than the Samoyed fur I’ve spun previously! A lovely mix of black, brown and a little gray. I blended it with some charcoal gray fleece I had on hand and the results so far are really encouraging! I am looking forward to spinning this up for her!

Because I was more focused on carding tonight I didn’t get a lot of spinning done, but this is what is currently on the wheel:
