For a while I was a not-so-Happy-Goth. But I am better.
I have made yarns. I have made yarns! I am quite happy to have made yarns. I worked on my crap but natural yarn with the new spindle some last week, and the lovely (but blogless) Leah informed me that I was Doing It Wrong, but then proceeded to show the how to Do It Right. Who knew you had to UN-twist the draft a bit before you let it spin up? And that doing so prevented you from yanking on the roving and cursing in frustration? Well, me. That’s who. But not anymore! I am well on my way to being a spinning fiend. Or something. I am, in all likelihood, overspinning the yarn, but I will find that out later, when I attempt to ply it. At the rate I’m going that should be soon.
And my thumb is a little blue from the roving. I’m kinda proud of that.
And work bought us lunch today! I ate way too much cheese dip (who doesn’t, though?).
And, and tomorrow’s Friday.
