Spinning Thoughts

Today I didn’t knit very much. I baked some little bear cakes. Babykins saw the pan the other day and kept saying cake, cake so I guess that means I need to make them for the little guy. Which means I probably won’t be knitting much tomorrow since I will be decorating the cakes. I also took a huge nap today from 1 to 3:45… I guess that really eats into your day. But I did do my presentation on knitting and no one fell asleep so there is that. I have to decide on my 30 minute now…

Besides this I got a HUGE shipment of yarn from Eat.Sleep.Knit. I now have a bunch of Malabrigo sock yarn. I also got some yarn from a destash on Ravelry. It came from Iceland and it was a great bargain. But next time I need to make sure that the yarn is from a smoke free home. This yarn is in quarantine right now and not co-living with my other yarn. I also got two traveling scarves in the mail from group 6. So overall it was a good mail day.

Now for my excitement for the week. Unless there are any Carlos disasters, I am hoping to go to the spinners group on Thursday from 6-9 at Wool n Cotton. I am very excited about this. I have had a spindle and some fiber that I bought at the Saturday Market in Anchorage for months now. I purchased a book on it with lots of pictures, but I am still leery of trying this out without adult supervision. So hopefully the ladies will be nice and teach me. I hope to love it so then I can get a spinning wheel because let’s face it, I need more projects in my life:)

Currently I am eyeing the Kromski spinning wheels. I love the look of the storybook ones, but they take up a lot of space and I don’t have a lot of room. I also really love the Minstral and the Mazurka… They are expensive though and I really need to get through a LOT of yarn before I go off and try to make my own. Sigh, maybe I should hope that I don’t like spinning…
