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.
