In theory, my little break from blogs and blogging is over and I should be up and ready to get back into the swing of things tomorrow. However, I have marked everything as read because there's just no way I would ever be able to get caught up. I'm already resenting the computer and don't want to be sitting here. So having to go back over the last two weeks or so would just never happen on the best of days. Understand or hate me. You pick.
Anyway, I spun for two days and am now on my second day of rest. My hip was/is bothering me and I'm hoping resting it will keep it from falling off. I really don't have time for PT or anything. While spinning like fuck for two days, I managed to do this:
That is some of the Shetland fiber that my Jean gave me when I picked up my wheel. The ball of roving was 6.5 oz and I halved it. Then I halved a half. That's what is on the bobbin. I'm so glad I did that because, as you can see, there's no way I would have gotten 3.25 oz on a single bobbin.
I'm hoping to get myself sorted enough to spin outside one morning this week. Since I'm awake at five anyway (if not eariler), I might as well be up doing something and I'm not really into the groove of watching the Tour de France yet. That should take another week or so.
I'm still (somewhat) slaving over a Niebling pattern I sort of like. At least, it's not full of errors and shit. That's enough to make me happy these days. Well... as happy as I can be.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go back to figuring out what the fuck day it is because I have no clue.
