Ready to Concede

It is hours away from the challenge deadline and I think that I am about ready to wave the white crocheted doily... The 4 oz of Black Cherry BFL from Susan's SpinningBunny has been spun and skeined.

From that fiber: 151 yards of 16 wpi, dk weight yarn.
The color looks complementary to the Crosspatch singles that are still marinating on their bobbins.
Is it possible that they may have a future together?...Things to ponder, over holiday ribs and Asti...
Hopefully, my headache will have subsided and I can ply that tonight before 11:00pm.

What is most doubtful to be plied tonight is the 4 oz batt of Grafton Fibers Corriedale.
I loved, loved, loved the colors. Too bad that by late last night I hate, hate, hated to spin. My wrist hurt and I got real crabby, real fast.  I confess, 16 ounces was more than I could handle. There, I said it. Sniff, sniff.
It showed up in my spinning too. Plying will be hellish as I try to get the over spun kinks out along the way. Howmever, it is spun and I'm counting those 4 oz towards the challenge goal. So that's 12 oz from the 16.

Stats on these singles will be posted tomorrow. Meanwhile, it's time to eat, drink and ply some more.
