I have been very lax this year on my knitting and spinning. As I said before in one of my posts, just very unmotivated this year. So I said to myself, time to get the show on the road girl and get some things done, a change of attitude is what I need. So I will begin by making myself do something with my knitting or spinning every day, knowing that eventually I will be back in the swing of things. I still love knitting and spinning, just not motivated to do them, so I will treat myself like one of my children and make me do it :P.
This is some left over Polypay roving that I kettle dyed a few years ago. Thought I would kill two birds with one stone and get it spun (won’t be a lot of yarn, maybe 200 yds of heavy fingering) while I learn to spin properly on my Rick Reeves spinning wheel. I’m still working on figuring out the tension on the double band drive so…. it is over spinning a little bit, but eventually it will be right. I did this yesterday and will spin on it every day until it’s done. I also need to get a pair of socks started for my dad for his birthday, I have a few months before that is here, but considering how long I took with my last pair of socks, LOL, I need to get the show on the road!
