To all of the spinners out there, how do you determine, while you are plying, that you have a balanced yarn? I know that there has to be a way.

School is out and summer still has not arrived here in the Pacific Northwest. People have been calling this month Junuary. It was a sweltering 59 degrees yesterday. Of course, this makes for perfect knitting weather.
Well, my brain said, "Hey, Hunnicutt, take that $50 gift card to Powell's and by yourself a bunch of really cool knitting books." For once, I agreed with my brain and off I went.

This is Dutch and is our newest family member. Now that all of his sibs have gone off, he has definitely become the center of attention in the house. He is huge for being just ten weeks old. He can go up and down the stairs, eat out of the adult food dishes (they are raised) and lift his leg when he pees. We are so proud of him.

Well, the last puppy is on a plane to Canada tonight. We kept one of the boys but it's still a little bittersweet not having a ton of puppy cuteness around the house.

So, I'm going to delve into spinning. I found a place near my house that does lessons starting next Tuesday. They also rent wheels so you can practice at home.

So, I find spinning rather interesting. However, I started wondering if was really practical. Can you get the a really good quality of yarn? Is it cost effective? Is it too time consuming.

Just finished the sleeves on the Carlito Cardigan. Thank God! Now all the pieces are finished. I'll block them tomorrow.
