I estimated ‘end of February’ for my 2 ply alpaca/BFL. Turns out that ‘mid February’ would have been more accurate:
And in fact, it’s only taken me this long because it’s been sitting around waiting for wet finishing for at least ten days.
I finished half the singles on February first; the other half February 2nd. I plied on the third, and skeined it off. Then I got lazy. (Clearly I was more in need of comfort spinning than I thought, being off work sick.)
So many of you responded to the idea of comfort spinning! I love to spin for 15 minutes in the morning, before my day gets started. I use it as a kind of meditation, allowing my thoughts to bubble and organise themselves whilst my body is still waking up. What is it, I wonder, that makes spinning so perfectly suited to this?
