I made yarn tonight. Great quantities of yarn. (Well, for me it's great quantities.) I plied the burgundy, the green and started plying some of the vast quantities of Colonial singles that I've spun. That made quite a large skein. I am now a HUGE fan of the Andean plying bracelet; if I was plying on a spinning wheel it'd take no time at all. Well, there's the time spent winding it onto my hand, of which I confess I am less a fan, but other than that, I really like it.

So now I have two smallish skeins and one fairly good sized skein, all of which need to be washed to set the twist. I'm terribly tempted to put them in the top rack of the dishwasher and run it without soap... that'd get the hot water at them without agitation. Wonder if anyone else has ever tried it? I mean, if you can use the thing for thawing meat...

I find myself inordinately pleased about making this yarn. I've spent the weekend watching stuff like The Ship and Surviving the Iron Age and Frontier House, so I guess I'm just feeling happy that I've managed to create something that would help my clothe my family, if I were in a position to have to do that.

In other, far more modern news, I hear that the look-and-feel that I was asked to create for a new feature on the sca.orgwebsite has been approved, so we can move forward with implementing the design throughout the section... indeed, building the section itself. I wish I could say more about it, because it's one of my favorite new things to come from the SCA and SCA.org, and I'm terribly thrilled and proud that my design is going to be its first face, but I don't think it's ethical to talk about it in too much deatil until it's ready to be unveiled. Suffice to say, it's very exciting, and I think rather unexpected (in a positive way), given the previous perceived attitude of the BoD towards electronic communication. I hope it'll be a lovely surprise for SCAdians around the world.

Erf. Way early in the morning...late at night for me. I need to get to bed -- job hunting in the morning.

I'll post to the SCA community, and there will be announcements on all the kingdom lists as well as the Rialto. If you want a really timely announcement, though, you can subscribe to the Board Announcements list, at http://www.sca.org/mailman/listinfo/announcements -- low-traffic, announcements only.
