Spinning Fun!

Okay, okay, I know I've been procrastinating finishing my mom's socks....in fact today I've set a goal on the sock before doing any other crafting (I'm about half way there)  So what have I been doing instead?

Spinning.....

the lovely Romney I got in NM! :)  One skein is done (~2.5 oz 196 yards, 3-ply)  I'm excited to see what happens after it is washed!  I have singles done up for 2 more skeins, plus fiber for just a little bit more!

Oh and half the singles done with a merino/silk blend!  Yumm, but must get the other bobbins empty before I can finish. 
 
Bad News:  I've had some shoulder issues from spinning....it has taken me a long time to figure out the cause....Good News: so I forced myself to not spin for 4 days and it is feeling better!  and when I spun last night I really watched my technique and limited my time...and the shoulder is fine today.  So I just have to make sure that I watch my movements!

Bad News: I started a sweater (10 inches worth) with my Scotland yarn!  Why is this bad?....because I'm not working on my sock!  Good News: I'm loving the sweater, and the yarn, and I have a schedule for the sock.  No problem!

Personally I am holding out for a clone. Hope you get everything finished on time--particularly your Mom's socks. Wish her a Happy Mother's Day. She has an awesome daughter.

Well, here it is kind of late on Saturday afternoon...how're you doing on those socks? Take care of your shoulder, too!

Someone named L*a* is happy that the semester is over so she can knit and spin and knit some more!!!!!

So glad that you worked out the shoulder pain. I agree with nck, we all should be cloned so we can do all the knitting and spinning we want. In moderation, of course.
