I started spinning in the morning again. Every morning used to have some sort of fiber work (play), but then it just stopped. I stopped, and didn’t realize that I was missing it. It’s been nice to start the day with
Sometimes I’m like that shoemaker. You know, the one who has no shoes. The only difference is I have no hats… and I’m not a shoemaker. I’m a crocheter. It’s kind of the same. The weather has turned, and I need a hat. I’m cold. Apparently I’m so cold that all I did with this hat was play yarn chicken. Yarn chicken is when you may or may not have enough yarn to finish the section(s) that need to be finished. I won these rounds.
Today’s shop update is a quickie. I have a few hanks of lovely DK yarn from my Monster Spawn dye sessions. The smaller hanks are single sections of Cheviot, while the larger hank is what happens when you take two of those sections and spin them.
I’m a little bit of all over the place this week. The end of school and some unexpected doctor (AND DENTIST!) visits have thrown my original “plans” out, and I’m replacing them with being a little scattered. It’s all good.
She is overdue for an update, my Green Monster. I took a break from working on her after I made her arms. They looked awesome… and like wieners. Ahem. This wasn’t the design I was looking for and needed some time to think about what to do about her situation. It took a few weeks, but I think I have come up with a solution. Her one arm no longer looks like a wiener. The other arm is in the works.
I think I found a way to do this that keeps it fun for me and makes really, really nice yarn. I think. I haven’t actually spun the yarn yet, so I could be off about how great the yarn is going to look. Nah, it’s going to look amazing. I can tell.
My creative need to MAKE ALL THE THINGS has come back. I think taking a serious break to regroup and reassess and being outside in my gardens was just what I needed. Apparently the winter can be a seasonal creative suck vacuum that I will figure out how to handle before next winter shows up. Anyway. I’ve been busy.
This was so much more difficult than I thought it would be. Who would have thought that giving a rabbit a haircut would be hard? It’s a rabbit. Priscilla’s haircut also proved to be humorous and now I have the best picture of all time to remember our little experience together.
I’m trying to take more pictures of what’s going on around me. This is proving to be challenging, as I’ve been putting my phone away and just living. Trying to keep myself disconnected from the gadgets hinders photo taking at times. Here are a few shots that I did manage to snap over the past few weeks.
