Coincidences

My sister-in-law, Mr. Truck's big sister (we'll call her Mimi), has been doing all the work with Mother-in-law, and sometimes she feels a bit overwhelmed. We can't do as much as we'd like, we're so far away, but we serve as cheerleaders and pseudo-psychologists and just good listeners. Now Mimi has been very fascinated by the whole spinning thing and has lots of questions so as little present I got this to spin for her. She's a crocheter and makes some really pretty things and potholders for me.





It's called Surelyto the Sea and is made by Brianna . These are the perfect colors for Mimi.





So I spun it up as pretty fine singles, at least the finest I had spun so far. And then I three plyed it to make maybe a light worsted weight. And last night Evan and Olivia helped me wind it into a cake. I wish I could have taken pictures but I only have two hands and they were occupied by keeping the yarn and Evan and Olivia from becoming one big knot.




Oh and the coincidence? Brianna is from Palm Coast, Florida and so is Mimi. In fact they live really close to each other. So the yarn is going back home.

Beautiful yarn! I can feel the sea breezes just looking at it.

That's really pretty! Do you have any idea what the yarn is going to look like before you spin it? The pre-spun fiber is beautiful. The yarn is beautiful, too, but different from the unspun fiber.

Adventure!
