I'm officially getting tired of this project. I realize what the problem is though. It's just mindless spinning. The past few years, I've become more specifically project oriented and just spinning for the sake of spinning is fine sometimes, but it seems like I've been spinning miles and miles of yarn forever, with no destination! Well, the Stanley Cup Playoffs do seem to run forever, but still. So, only one more game in the semi-finals and the finals start next week. So in all, there are only 5 - 8 more games left. With any luck, I'll be able to see it through and finish up what is turning out to be the nearly endless bag of roving! The bag of white shetland that I'm spinning right now, while is getting smaller, doesn't seem to be doing so with any appreciable speed! I think I've been at half a bag now for a week!
My original basket was overflowing with skeins. I had to find a second basket. It was much more impressive with the smaller basket overflowing with skeins, but honestly, it wasn't horribly practical. It was spilling out all over the place. I'd totally forgotten about the lighter grey, which was hiding at the bottom of the basket! This is mainly grey, white and black Shetland. The few skeins of white are tucked in the back. I'm leaving them there because they are from a different fleece. They are not quite the same texture or colour as the fleece that I'm spinning now. The darker grey is Romney. I've been spinning it all about the same grist, in hopes that if I want to combine colours for one project, I can do so.
Gratuitous cat photo 'cause he's just so darned cute when he sleeps with his eyes covered like that :)
