Lazy Monday

There is a certain disadvantage to moving my spinning wheel into my studio. Namely, everywhere I look I see more fiber that I haven’t spun yet. And for some reason the bin on the far right, second shelf from the top keeps catching my eye. I know what’s in there. But I’m not finished with the BFL/Tussah combed top yet…

Yup. 16 oz of the yummiest Merino top I’ve ever bought. I want to spin this. Now. It’s a struggle…like not starting another knitting project until after the first of the year.

I’ve brought the laptop into the studio because after I decided to do some spinning it dawned on me I hadn’t posted anything this morning. So, I’m doing that now. It’s almost 2:45 pm. Better late than never. In my defense Brad and I have been enjoying the day together, watching OAN and chatting about world affairs and the time got away from me. But I’m out of the recliner and back to the wheel for the afternoon.

I’ll take a break from spinning and see what’s up on social media later. And I might use the laptop to do a bit of online research while it’s convenient. I did notice that more Twitter Files have dropped today but can’t recall what it was about at the moment. Even folks on Gab are talking about it. Anyway, time to be productive. I’ve got BBQ Chicken Breasts simmering away in the crock pot. Brad’s favorite. And not being hungry for breakfast when we got up I ended up making my egg muffins for a late lunch. Brad made more coffee so we are both well caffeinated for a Monday afternoon.

Brad is off to his Man Cave and will do a little target shooting on the pistol range a couple of hundred yards from the Man Cave. It’s 44° and overcast and I have no inclination to venture outside at this time of the day so I will get on with my spinning.

Have a great afternoon and evening, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
