I'm not feeling so hot lately. The no-breathing that plagued me during the last quarter of 2007 is back with a vengence, accompanied by it's friend Dry Cough. So I'm switching medicines again. In the past year, I have been on Prozac, Effexor, Lexapro and Celexa (the last two are the ones that impede my breathing). I'm tired, crabby and my feet are still the size of melons. It's a gray, icky day (my favorite kind of day, actually) and there are supposed to be storms tonight. G and I will cuddle up with Unkie Turtle and read.
I have been so, so good at not buying yarn or roving. (I know I'll come home with a boatload from Yarn School - next week! - and I CAN'T WAIT.) Thanks to finishing up Jennifer's yarn, I have spun 12.5% of my stash! Here are some pics of it:
It's on the bulky side, 2,380 yards and 4.5 lbs. It's the most I've ever spun of one particular fiber (Crown Mountain Farms pencil roving) and I don't know if I'll ever do that much again. Luckly, I've figured about two pounds for a sweater for myself, so that should only take half as long.
I thought I'd be really sick of spinning it, but I was just enormously pleased with it when I was done. I think I hit the blahs midway through and took some time off, but I really powered through it in the last few weeks and found a good sense of spinning zen (and many, many podcasts). I need that zen to transfer over to my knitting. Still in the hole on that one.
