It doesn't take much to impress me, but look at the size of the lemon I picked off one of the trees in our complex today. It's as big as my hand!
The lemons and grapefruits are ripe and delicious, but the oranges are still sour. I have trouble getting a good orange here; either they're dried out from last year, or not ripe yet. My quest for the perfect orange from a tree continues...
In other news, I finished spinning a pretty skein of yarn. I had a batt from Butterfly Girl Designs that was merino, bamboo, and firestar that had been languishing in my fiber stash for quite awhile.
I brought some of my stash and a spinning wheel down here to the desert (can't live in a place without a selection of yarn and fiber, ya know) and started spinning this pretty batt the last time I was here. It was only 3.2 ounces, so I wasn't sure how much yardage I'd get. I didn't split it before starting, so I decided to just spin the whole thing and see if perhaps it would suffice as a single. It's pretty fine, but not too thready and I wound it into a ball and then onto my tabletop swift and it held together fine and didn't look too uneven. The colors are really pretty, too. I counted about 825 yards, it straightened out a lot when I washed it and I think I'm going to find a lacy pattern for a shawl and use it as is. Always fun to experiment!
