Spinning Binge

This was supposed to be the month of small projects, but it seems now I’m on a bit of a spinning binge. I can’t stop spinning. It was even the first thing I did this morning, well… until the boys were done eating and I had to hide my wheel.

I’m also on a bit of a fiber buying binge (perhaps to make up from my yarn-buying deprivation?). So far Miss Babs and Loop have showed up at my doorstep, and Pigeon Roof will be here any day now. I’ve also got the Alden Amos book coming as well. I suddenly feel the urge to know EVERYTHING. This should help. Thank goodness for Christmas money!

I liked Trek’s comment that there should be a Knitters’ Spinning Day. I think it will keep me focused (and maybe some more of you out there!).  Friday sounds good, so Friday it shall be. If you’re trying to get your spinning groove going in 2008, take Friday to either get some spinning done, or just share what you’ve been working on. Let me know if you plan to participate!

  1. Count me in! I’m not sure how much spinning will actually happen on Friday, but it the day I picked to do spinning updates anyway!

    I’m so amazed by how much better my spinning gets in a fairly short time when I spin more than a couple of grams every few weeks!

  2. Yay spinning! I’ll try for Friday too, that should work out well.

  3. It’s funny. I can go months without spinning and then, all of a sudden, it’s the only thing I want to do! When the urge hits, I have to do it. Hopefully, it will hit soon. I’ve got a ton of fiber around here!

  4. Knitter’s spinning day, I like it! I’m in. I may not spin every Friday, but I can certainly share what’s on the bobbins.

    Count me in! I just learned to spin on the wheel and have prepped two batts for this week. It’s bound to have plenty of ‘character’!

    Don’t you just love Krista’s dyework? (Krista @ Pigeonroof Studios)

  6. Noooooo! I do not need another obsession! My sister has started spinning and natural dying and has produced the most gorgeous wool. I have more wool than I can knit already 🙂
