Woot! There is now only one more day until the DFW Fiber Fest. I’ve been counting down the days since, well, I think since January. I’ve pinched my pennies in anticipation, and now I get to go spend some dough!
I’m really bad at spending money, to be perfectly honest. One time, while shopping for school supplies with a friend, I filled my basket with everything I thought I’d need for college that year. Then, I began to doubt what I picked up (though I had saved specifically for purpose). I proceeded to put everything back. I do this. I find something in the future and save for it. Then, when it comes time to spend the money, I start to worry. Is there something else that money should be spent on?
I do have some kind of a plan, though. I would really like some more sock yarn. I’m thinking really bright colors, maybe even neon. I’m on a neon kick lately. I’d also like some more spinning fiber and maybe another drop spindle. I don’t know. We’ll see. I’m just excited to be around so much lovely yarny goodness.
The week has ticked by very slowly. I think it’s been in anticipation of the weekend. I have nearly finished the first sock for my dad. I got to the ribbing, about 3 inches up from the ankle, and then asked him how long he wanted the leg. He wants 8 inches! That will make these the tallest socks I’ve ever knit. I started to slow down after this. I’m going to need a plan moving forward.
The only other thing I’ve worked on this week is my spinning. I love it! The whole week was rather stressful, and I find I get lost much easier with the spindle. I don’t have the muscle memory to take over. I have to pay attention to what I’m doing. I still get uneven yarn, but it’s getting better. I can’t wait to ply it with my Aqua Moon! The next thing will be to decide what to make!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’m now counting down the hours to Fiber Fest. Any fun plans for you this weekend?
