Secondly, I have officially run out of the blue yarn for the wedge weave. I ran to Asheville over the weekend where I had bought the first skein. Unfortunately, they were out! So I now have it on order. But I came home and started weaving and weaving and weaving and now have the green block only one row from being finished. After that, I can't do anything else on it until the blue yarn shows up! I just couldn't stop going and going and going....
Thirdly, while I was in Asheville, I did buy MORE yarn! If you remember the Noro yarn I purchased from Theresa. I've been wanting a chocolate brown as a background color for that piece. So there it was and I bought it!
Lastly, I asked someone a couple of weeks ago if it was possible to spin Dakota's hair. He was mostly a German Shepherd and it's not exactly what I would assume one spins. She said yes and volunteered to spin it for me. So, for two weeks I have walked around with a paper bag picking up hair in all those places that dog hair ends up. And yes - I even resorted to the vacuum cleaner bag. All the hair I would curse all those years have now become VERY precious to me. I wasn't able to provide the best fur for spinning. We used to take clumps of that out every time we bathed him! But tonight I took all that I found and she was able to make about 2 feet of two ply yarn for me. My plans are to weave a mat for a picture of him and his yarn can be an accent.
A word to the wise - if this idea appeals to you, collect hair now while it's easy to obtain. You really don't want to know what's in your vacuum cleaner bag!!!
