Borrow a person?

Got to love the library world. First we have people complaining about people hanging out in the British Library, now we have the first UK "living library". Check it out here. Actually, this is a kinda cool idea.

Fugly yarn

Well, usually I LOVE spinning BFL fiber, but this time, I hated it. I'm thinking it wasn't well prepped. Usually BFL spins like butter - smooth..... but this time, there were lots of short clumps and such. I was very disappointed. To make matters worse, the color sucked. It was part of a fiber club so sometimes it's just not a good match. I'm sure someone would love the color, but not me. I gave up spinning thin and spun the 2nd half thick/thin. The yarn is now sitting calmly in the soak pot and will soon be simmered in purple wilton food color. Hopefully it will look much better even if I hated spinning it. It's always interesting to see what overdying looks like. Here is a photo of the original yarn:

A library actually being used! Horror of Horrors!
