Buffalo gal

The buffalo spun up pretty well - I love my charkha! - but the plying went less well. I'm going to have to figure out a better way to ply. I may end up using my Ashford, but we'll see. I got about 30 yards of 2 ply at about 18 wpi. I don't know that I can make anything out of it, but it's wonderfully soft. Maybe an accent yarn?

I'm almost done with the STR socks, and I'm going to give them to my sister as a mother's day present. I gave my mom a bottle of wine, but we all drank it last night :)

Mother's day is pretty depressing for me, because it's a day that I have trouble not thinking about motherhood. Man proposes, God disposes, I guess.
