Goals: SAC'd

Today's run/walk: treadmill says 4.1 miles in 53:55. Half-mile warm-up walk, 5K run, half-mile cool-down walk.

My LSG (Lazy, Stupid and Godless) peeps on Ravelry have put together an October SAC.... Spinning Asskick Club. Set some goals, assign point totals to each (summing to 100), and - do them. Just what I needed to get myself back behind the wheel more, so to speak.

One goal was to finish spinning some fiber I started last month. Done - 20 points. Next goal - ply it. Done for another 20 points. This is 770 yds (4oz) of a 2-ply merino/bamboo/tussah silk blend from Miss Babs that I got at Stitches Midwest last year.

50% Merino, 30% Bamboo, 20% Tussah Silk
A third goal was to ply some California Red that's been sitting on bobbins in singles for a few (or more) weeks. Done - I'm up to 60 points! This is 372 yds (4oz) of 2-ply, at 12 wpi.

California Red

California Red sheep earned their name from the unique red fibers in the cream-colored fleece. It's not the softest stuff on the planet, but the color is great and it'll make something durable and warm.
