It’s good to be flexible…

Last night, after a very interesting but grueling Bio class, I picked up a bump of BFL from Pigeonroof Studios, thinking I’d do another 3 ply sock yarn. Except the fiber, it really did not want to be 3 ply sock yarn. And I really did not want to fight with fiber. I’ve been fighting with Kreb’s Cycles and bio-chem for weeks now. It’s been a horrid slog just to maintain a C in this wretched class and I must, I absolutely MUST have a B but preferably an A to get into the nursing program (I think I can bring it up, we’ve got 3 tests left, I’m only half a percent away from a B now and I have an A in lab. But oof. Sweet creeping zombie jesus I hate bio chem). I have teenage daughters and five cats who don’t behave and frankly, I’m oh so tired of fighting with things.

So I asked my inner moppet what she wanted to spin and she said, “Thick and thin, please.”

And then she said, “How about plying it with some sewing thread?” and I said, “Okay!”

And that worked out well and the Inner Moppet clapped her hands and was pleased. Now she is looking at the ounce or so I have left of this and asking if we can do more thick n thin and maybe string some beads on the plying thread this time? I think we can do that. She’s also muttering things about sequins, buttons, silk flowers and art yarns.

My Inner Moppet and I are both enchanted with the spinning wheel today.

    Well I was going to pull out my sweater and spend naptime knitting on the endless square of boring stockinette endlessness, but you just convinced me to pull out my spinning wheel instead.
