Don’t judge me.
Do you ever feel like you just can’t wait to see something get done? I think I feel like that about 99.9999% of the time. I have spun on projects that I felt took way too long to get where I wanted to go. That whole gray spin during the Tour last year drove me a little bonkers. So much gray, so little patience…With this spin, I can see that I did put a sizable dent in the fluff…But it still feels like there’s miles of it left!
Girl Child and I went out back this morning. She went to ride her bike and I went to spin the rest of this cotton.
The sun had other plans for us though. Within a half hour, we were back in the house, grateful for the ceiling fan.
It was as I was packing up my things to go right back in that I had a thought that was oh so familiar to me…, “Man, I wanna see some yarn.” We had just come out and now I had to go right back in and get started all over again?? Nahhhh…It didn’t even have to be a ton of yarn. But something had better had’ve appeared in my hands by the end of the day or…Well, we would’ve had fireworks today. But they might not have been festive.
Sidebar: Am I the only one who is given to delusions of melting into a pool of green slime if they don’t get an FO within a week? Seriously, my mind replays footage of Judy Garland throwing water on the Wicked Witch of the West when I think of it. Is it just me? Honestly, this spin has been going on for more than a week, so I’m still normal. Right? Well, no matter. I got a skein and I’m keeping it. (sticks tongue out)
And here we have it!
I was good. I only plied half of it! I still have some left to spin, so I’ll use the last half of the bobbin to finish that off.
I got a skein of cotton yarn! My very first skein of cotton yarn. I see room for improvement, of course. Lots of it. But look at it! I got a skein of cotton yarn!
I feel better now (sits back, and crosses legs).
Wishing you all a day where you can enjoy breaking away from the usual, being independent and just doing your own thing. Have a happy 4th!
