Something that Eileen over at Crochet Attic said yesterday really caught my attention:
None of us live in a bubble where everything is wonderful all day everyday.This is totally the truth. I try to keep things as real as possible, and while I try not to complain on the internet too much, I don't try to sugar coat things. I've been busy, life's been stressful, but God is in control.
And since I've rambled on so much, I figure I should get to sharing with you what I've been working on this week.
I recently was gifted a drop spindle, and while I am absolutely clueless about spinning, I still bought some roving from the craft show on Saturday. I've watched a few youtube videos, so I understand the basic process, but getting the wool to go the way I want is just not happening.
I'm trying to continue my stash-bash, and I have this huge bag of yarn... I haven't decided if it's a bag or a creature. Originally, it was a bag, but I got lazy and didn't want to keep increasing. So I think it's a creature in progress. Both yarns are from recycled sweaters.
This ball of yarn will be another Claret Cowl. This used to be a skein of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bare Bulky, but I dyed it with kool-aid and now it is beautiful, if I do say so myself. I just haven't cast on yet. But by the end of the day, it will be.
You should check out Tami's Amis, cuz there should be tons of awesome WIPWs over there.
