K_cat: I love your take on color and pain. Color does help! I realized when I had bronchitis a few weeks ago that when I started coloring in my kids' coloring books I felt so much better. Just adding color! Just crayons!
I've been working on a second yarn without finishing the first. One on the drop spindle and one on the wheel... Hopefully one will be done today, and the other tomorrow!
As for prizes, the plan is:
four progress (not just compliments, though, we like compliments, too) posts by March 15, and you're entered into a drawing - for fiber!
four progress posts between March 16 and March 31, and you're entered into a drawing - for fiber!
I'm thinking about finishing the other 2 ounces of my February Diamond club on my spindle, but I'm not sure yet. I'm also thinking about getting the book Respect the Spindle
but again, I'm not sure yet. Ooh! It's march! In about 2 weeks I'll be getting another 8 ounces of fiber! I am so excited! I think the Spinning the Seasons turns to Spring this month!Do the progress posts have to have pictures? I am planning on posting pictures each Friday of my growing mountain of clean fiber, just because I'm used to photographing then for FF, ya know? I don't have anything really exciting other than that, and I figured that's how I would quantify how I am doing on my goal, since my only real "stash" is uncombed fleece. I feel like I would be redundant just popping in, "Yup, got my 3 slivers done today" 8 times this month, but of course I already feel redundant just planning on posting my growing clean fiber mountain.
I'm also thinking of maybe getting a book on dyeing, either the Teach Yourself Visually
or... that other one I was looking at on Amazon... Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece
, how did I forget that? Anyway, I'm thining of getting one of those so maybe if I get my fleece all combed this month I can start in making it colorful before i spin it?! I need to start busting ass on this combing thing, then. It's just so time consuming! I am, however, already ahead of the curve for today. My daily goal is 3 slivers but I have already done 2 today and if my husband decides to play WoW tonight then I might get another 2 or 3 done. Woot! (<---Does that count as a progress post?!)
