It's winter....It's cold.....It's snowy....It's cold and flu season.....All of the above are at my house right now. (sniffle snuff).First it was my husband, and now I'm in the middle of a nasty cold. I'm miserable! I missed TNKG last night. I'll undoubtedly miss yet another knitting group meeting tomorrow. (have I whined long enough)?
Ok, so it's just a cold, and I am sure I'll be back to normal in a few days, but if you can't whine on your very own blog, where can it be done???
There was one day that BG stayed home, lest he catch Grandma's bug. It gave me an opportunity to spin. Why, on a day when I felt terrible, would I pick a fiber that I was afraid to touch, for fear I would ruin it is beyond me. But, I did. I spun this fiber,
Anyway, totally beginner's luck. It's gorgeous! I spun it as a single (another first for this spinner). I have 8 oz of it, and this skein is the first 3oz, which measures at 470 yards. Thin fingering I would guess.
Also, I am still in the mitten mode. How is this for a classic, old fashioned mitten?
Tonight is the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. I love the Olympics. I can get caught up in all the drama and excitement. I wish our Olympians well, but medals or not.....the experience will surely remain with them for a lifetime! I have not subscribed to any olympic knitting goals. Just my usual craze of constant knitting/spinning - waste not a moment of life. LOL.... even when you're sick!
