The days are starting to blur into each other as Spinzilla week heads into the weekend. I'm walking around with with multicolored fibers clinging to my clothes and that's nothing compared to the bits of wool, silk, alpaca and yak all over my favorite spinning chair. I am living and breathing spinning and starting to feel a bit crazed. I look up from my wheel and it takes my eyes a minute to focus on the external, non-whorling world.
All madness aside, I feel like I'm only just beginning to get my mojo back. What this week has taught me is that I need to spin more regularly. I spent the beginning of the week feeling very rusty. for all of my hours at the wheel, I wasn't very excited about the yarn I was producing. Today I feel my old creativity and comfort coming back and it's such a relief. I raided my studio earlier today for this yellow Merino, black alpaca, and this super soft yak/silk blend. The resulting yarn is my favorite thus far. Tomorrow, when the sun returns, I'll share a picture. As for now, it's back to the wheel!
