Spun during the news and channel surfing with The Man after the kids had gone to bed. (I tell you knitting and spinning save my sanity sitting in front of the TV with him. He can watch 20 things at once - and if you don't believe me, ask my parents, who refuse to ever let him have the clicker - EVER)
I have those two bobbins with leftovers and I can ply a little bit from those. Then, I thought, I'd split up the bobbin singles and ply those, so I at least have all the yarn to use for a project.
I'm proud because it is the smallest diameter yarn I've ever produced and I worked hard at it. I've tried to spin with a project in mind - some sort of wrap or a shawl, so I'm happy it worked. I think I need to take a class here in Boulder from the Shuttles Spindles and Skeins guru Maggie Casey. One starts in January. Man I miss my old teacher from San Diego. And, I feel badly that all I did was spin in there and not really pay attention to most of the stuff she taught for spinning, all the good technical stuff.
On the knitting front? Not so much. I kindof hurt my right arm knitting up a storm a few weeks ago, so I'm giving it a rest. Since I spin as a lefty, or long-draw as a righty it doesn't hurt it, so I'm getting it healed up and ready for some crazy knitting coming soon.
Show me what you've got on your blog - I need a kick in the patootie to get my knitting mojo back. Anyone out there?
Knit and spin on everyone!
And..... THAT is all she wrote.
