Oh, My Feet

I’m ahead of schedule! Two and half hours on my feet running the Great Wheel has paid off in these five little beauties. They’re right around one ounce apiece!

I spun two of them this morning, and the other three while we watched Miracle on 34th Street. I’m so happy that I got ahead! It means that I might not fall behind in the next couple days. I’ll just forget about the fact that my arms and back and everything else are complaining loudly.

And I added two more big fat skeins to the unnamed yarn.

More and More

And that is a lot of fiber chunk babysitting. And I got fed up with it. And I decided to take a break and spin some of the black wool/silk mix.

And I have practically done nothing but spin today. I think meals entered into the picture vaguely. Let me see, what else did we do? Oh yes, we made Christmas cookie dough. I remember that. Someone suggested that I was trying to figure out how to spin the dough into yarn, but I deny that. If I was going to try to spin an eatable it would be old-fashioned taffy.

By the way, last night I spun up a whopping three-eighths of an ounce of pink silk during The Bishop’s Wife. Rather depressing, isn’t it? On the drop spindle I manage three-eighths during a movie. On the Walking Wheel I did three ounces. I’ve seen classes on maximizing your drop spindle production, but I’ve never been able to take one. Well, I say “classes,” I saw one class, and it cost too much. Not to mention it was being held a few states away from me.

And speaking of disappointments, I noticed another, oh, ten ounces of fiber that should have made it onto the project list. The New Zealand roving I’m spinning on the drop spindle is technically part of a larger sweater project. There is a large ball of the same roving sitting in my closet, waiting to be spun. I had just decided that I would try to spin five ounces of it during December. I think I shall just let it sit. I’ll need some project to carry me into the New Year. I can’t just rush in without any thing planned to do!

    The black silk blend reminds me of hematite. Which I like a lot!
