In the US the big Thanksgiving weekend is coming up. Some people look forward to the food or the shopping. But my people, spinners, look forward to uninterrupted days of spinning, knitting or fiber prep.
This is also the weekend that, before the crazy of the December holidays, I like to reflect on what I want to spin next in 2017.
This weekend I will wear only stretchy pants, there will be football (Go Blue!) too much food and a ferocious amount of fiber. I have plans to card for color, spin for a few accessories, knit swatches in dark movie theaters (Dr. Strange and Moana) and generally wallow in fiber. I really need the comfort of fiber and the feeling of doing work that doesn’t require wifi or electricity.
While I frolic in my fluff I’ll keep a notebook handy, writing down any ideas I have for 2017. I have a few things that are tickling my interest – more spinning and color (with a little weaving thrown in), exploring new-to-me dyers and making things beyond swatches with my handspun.
What are you excited about spinning, learning, making in 2017?
If you are in the US what will you spin this weekend?
