I’m definitely on a spinning roll now! It’s been a week or so since I last churned out my previous plied yarn – pictures to come soon – and I’m onto my third braid of fiber now! Talk about getting relaxed AND worked out at the same time – all that feet action beats the heck out of a Lipofuze!
Above is the result of the second braid that I had worked on and finished yesterday, both spinning into singles and then plying into a nice fingering weight yarn. This is one of my handdyed fibers and somehow I couldn’t bear to part with it so I kept it. Of course, the fact that it was the only merino-silk braid I order in the initial stages of starting off my shop helped. *grins* The sheen and colour transition is just amazing so much so that I’m quite tempted to make this part of my shop’s fiber inventory!
I wonder though if I’d be able to continue spinning at this rate once I start work…or work on my other hobbies like knitting and sewing, which has taken a backseat. The price of having to juggle so many hobbies on top of caring for a home, husband and baby. I have about a week to go before my first day and I can’t say that I’m looking forward to it. It’s still quite mixed considering that I don’t really have a suitable wardrobe in place and I foresee my plate getting even more full by the minute.
Still, one thing is for sure – I’m looking forward to the day I move into our new place and incorporate some gym/pool laps into my exercise routine. At the moment, I’ve been active but not as active as I would like to be. Still have those pregnancy kilos to get rid of and while many people have assured me that going back to work helps, I can’t be sure. Yes, yours truly here is one of the few women out there who can put on weight during times of stress. Hai.
But that aside, I’m glad to announce. My spinning days are here again!
