I love to spin. I love the meditative process of sitting at my wheel and turning fleece into yarn. Give me a perfectly chilled glass of buttery Chardonnay to go with it and I get to have my own little piece of heaven right there in front of me. I have lots of pretty fleece that is waiting for my attention and any time I’m at one of my wheels spinning I remember why I love it so and always think that I need to spend more time spinning than I do. For some reason though, it always seems to be lower on the list of my priorities then sitting and knitting. So my spinning suffers and my fleece stays fleece. I just can’t seem to focus on my spinning. (Yes, I know how many WIPS I have on the needles. I do see a direct correlation between my hummingbird level of attention to my knitting focus and my inability to finish a spinning project. I’m scattered, not clueless.) Somehow I do manage to find a way to accomplish something from time to time and I have finished spinning all of this fleece onto two bobbins.
And, here’s the super exciting part. I have a plan. A well thought out plan to finish this before the end of the month. My intention is to find 20 minutes three times a week to spin. That works out to an hour a week. I plan other things every week, so my intention is to plan this too. If I can feed myself, hold down a full-time job, spend time with my husband, and run 20 k in a week I can spin for an hour.
So, wish me luck, and hopefully soon this will be finished and hanging to dry and please feel free to harass me a little about my spinning from time to time. apparently I need a good kick in the pants occasionally. Just don’t kick too hard or I won’t be able to sit at the wheel.
