Olde Schoole

Got me a spinning wheel! Yep! Got me a spinning wheel and I sat down and I SPINNED!
Took some trial and error, some moments of crinkled foreheads and a couple of “oh shits” but I got it figured out. At least I think I do! I spun up and plied some border leicester from The March Hare. It’s nothing to write home about, this yarn I made, but I managed to work and learn the different aspects of the spinning wheel. Now it’s just a matter of maintaining some consistency in my drafting.
This morning I ordered 8 pounds (8 POUNDS) of merino roving, along with a set of dye from Indie Dyer. Awesome!
In other happenings:
I slept for 32 hours. I woke up at about 6:30 this morning after 32 hours of sleep. David had woken me up briefly yesterday to feed me fried egg and cheese sandwiches and I kind of intended to stay awake…but then I decided to go to sleep again. I really really needed that sleep.
My dreams have been incredibly vivid lately, both visually and emotionally. A lot of classic themes of powerlessness and loss, but also a lot of adventure and triumph. In one dream there was a group of assholes who just did everything they could to make me miserable. In turn, I did everything I could to avoid them or, when confronted, to punch them. I didn’t get super upset until they tried to take Maddie away from me!
Do what you will to me, but do not take my dog away!
On Friday I bought the yarn for the Northern Dreams Pullover. Can’t wait to get started on that. Except I have to wait because I have other projects in the hopper that take precedence. Fine.
From the CSA I have kale, cabbage, butternut squash, potatoes, carrots, broccoli and onions. I need to make something delicious and autumnal for dinner that isn’t soup.
It’s 9am and that means it’s time to go to ‘work’.

  1. That pullover is awesome. All those patterns look great. Crochet patterns have come a long way since I learned to knit. (does that make sense?)
    Ooo, I’d be roasting me some veggies with what you’ve got there!
