a thing I did for a few minutes, several days ago (spoiler :: it’s spinning)

 

look at that red!!

look at that red!!

I was so excited to get this on the wheel and it was spinning up so quickly, and then I got interrupted by something, and another something, and another something, and I never got back to spin the second half of it. It’s killing me how little spinning I’ve done this fall, and this gorgeosity sits on the wheel just taunting me. But I am trying to work on a pair of knitting designs that are taking priority right now, as well as a list of must-knits a mile long (’tis the season, yes?).

The fiber is Hello Yarn August 2013 Fiber Club – “Spirograph” on Falkland (Falkland! One of my faves!). It is spinning up so fat and floofy. I love it so much.

What I need to do is just take spinning on as a daily discipline the way I have blogging, and just do it even a little bit a day. Ten minutes really shouldn’t be too much to muster, even with holiday knitting and design deadlines. Doesn’t that sound manageable? Of course, I don’t usually tend to do things the manageable way, so we’ll see how this works out.

  1. Yes, that red is perfection in that fiber. Adrian is a wonder with color.

    I should join you in allowing time for daily spinning. It is my favorite thing to do, but I seldom give myself permission. (If only I was so disciplined with chocolate.)
