So Much Spinning

As I may have mentioned yesterday, I officially have nothing on the needles. That doesn’t happen very often. In fact, I found myself getting increasingly annoyed with my neighbor, leading to me stomping around the house muttering “There goes the neighborhood!” under my breath and having strong urges to post a public vaguepost on facebook about it. Mr. Ink eventually said “You know, if you had some knitting on the needles, I feel certain you’d be able to find a way to let this go.” And I realized he was right.

But, I still wasn’t ready to put anything on the needles Instead, I worked on spinning. I have been working long term on 2 coordinating Loop bumps, and I was at the end of the spinning portion of them last evening. I was quickly able to finish the last bit up, so I could snap a shot of them both before the light left.


As you can see, they are very similar, but they are not the same.  I spent a portion of the evening plying these, bringing me to this point:


You can see that I am just beginning the orange here. I then went to Marja’s house to watch the local college football game, and plied through that.


One bobbin done, the other isn’t far behind.


And yet I still feel like I’ve got a long way to go!

I also went to the yarn shop to spend a gift certificate, and I WILL be casting on a new project quite shortly now. Soon. Very very soon!
