Day 20 of the Tour de Fleece and Stage 18 of the Tour de France. Pre-Orders for the new online game Star Wars: The Old Republic went on sale today. Seattle is still waiting for Summer while the rest of the country finds out how quickly a snowball really melts in hell. This podcast cast series got accepted to iTunes! Finished spinning all the Emotion colorway Bluefaced Leicester fiber and now I only need to ply it and it will be done! Done! DONE!

Chain-Plying (or Navajo Plying aka N-ply) videos:
How to Navajo Ply: Demystified and Unraveled – the slow motion video at 3:18 is what really made chain-plying “click” for me
Sarah Anderson – Navajo Plying – A good video for perfecting your technique once you have the basics down
