Sigh. I missed Tour de Fleece again this year. I mean, I knew it was happening. I had my spinning wheel right by my table with purple (actually violet) fiber started. But I didn't start. Next thing I knew it was July 7th already.
Maybe next year.
The reason I didn't start Tour de Fleece was because I've been busy knitting lots of things that I can't show pictures of, since they are Christmas and birthday presents, BUT they will all soon be finished. By 'soon' I mean in a month or so. These things are pretty fun to knit, more fun than spinning purple yarn apparently!
After the purple yarn is spun, I have a lovely bag of alpaca to spin, and a honking giant bag of four pounds of black romney that I bought years ago. It's enough wool for two big Aran sweaters, and the thought of spinning and knitting that much black wool is a bit depressing, to be honest. It's really pretty black wool though, pure black, not the typical dark brown sheep's black; that's why I bought it. Maybe I should just take it a bit at a time, and before I know it I'll be done! That is what I'll tell myself anyway.
What do you do to get through a lot of something? Whether it's work or fiber or knitting or cleaning or whatever, what little mind games do you use to get through it all? I'd love to have some new and unusual ideas besides my own!
