First, I’ll start with a story. I decided to put in my final TdF spinning time this morning, since the morning was so beautiful. Not humid, decent temp, really ideal for porch spinning. So, I am sitting on the porch, and a group of people walk by the house. The older gentleman says “Are ya knittin’ a sweater?” I have to say, I’ve had my wheel mistaken for a loom before, but this was the first time it was mistaken for 2 pointy sticks.
I put in just over an hour on my cabled yarn project. I am ignoring the fact I didn’t complete this spin. It makes me feel like I’ve failed at TdF, which is silly, because I did spin every day, including one of the rest days. But, if I look at it logically, even if I sat in my chair and spun all day long, I still wouldn’t be able to finish this yarn. So, instead, I am going to spend my day on my motorcycle, and then finishing up the cleaning of Bug’s room.
So, I will leave you with a TdF conclusion photo.
I have about an ounce of singles to finish, then the plying of the second 4 oz, then the plying of all 8 oz together. I am hoping now to have this one done next week, as I will be on vacation and that seems like a great time to be done!
