78 yards and 2 miles

Dear Mom,
Thanks to the sanctuary of your kitchen, which besides being clean and quiet is most importantly Patsy free, I made a wee dent in the box of roving (formerly known as the bag o'wool). I thought you might like to know that after filling that second bobbin, the yarn you witnessed me plying totalled up to a whopping 78 yards. Just need about 1425 more yards to go if I am going to spin enough for a sweater. Less if I don't put any cables in it, but this seems to be a cable-wanting yarn.

The humidity is cranking back up and as much as I hate to do it, the house is closed up so that we can be comfortable. Pink tongues were hanging out and I was "glowing" after this morning's walk.

But this makes it all worth it.
