Sunday happinings

Today we became accurate in fiber weighing. I have been putting off buying a scale for so long due to the research-itis that strikes whenever I think about making a purchase.



Salter 3003 Aquatronic digital scale


Max capacity of 11 lbs. Accuracy up to 5 pounds is 1/8th ounce.

I love this.

I finished a full bobbin of Optim tonight. 7.4 oz of pure softness. I can either spin another matching bobbin or move 3.7 oz to another bobbin and ply. I may split in to three ply divisions and try to make DK weight.


Today Mrs. Twisted and I attended the South County Sunday knit group at Fashion Island. Nice to see so many old friends. Having to travel so much lately makes it hard to see them on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Special Thanks to Megann for your generous gift. You are such a warm giving person.

  1. Reminds me of an ad from the 80's for a stereo system, with some "Russian" defectors wandering around the stereo shop muttering "50 watts per channel, babycakes". If I ever *need* a scale that large, I know whom to consult for my research!

    Casting on my purple Jojoland Cashmere today. I knew you'd approve!

  2. Congratulations on your scale. I hope you end up liking it as much as I do mine.


    I usually try to get 2 ounce bobbins when I am going to 2-ply. It minimizes the manual winding of bobbins and generally means I can get the whole skein of 2-ply yarn onto one bobbin.

    It was fun to watch you, running around weighing everything. You ARE a bit of geek sometimes. :)
