I’m still knitting on a few different shawls and I finished up the knitted bibs that I had an order for. But last night I felt like spinning which I haven’t done much of since last spring.
I split it in half length-wise, and then divided each half into about 7 sections length-wise also. And began spinning… this fiber is a joy to spin, it’s very soft, has a long staple length and flows smoothly through your fingers. I spun up about 1/4 of it last night in about 1 – 1 1/2 hours.
As far as what I am reading, well I’m listening to the final book in the Hunger Game Trilogy ~ Mockingjay on Audible. It actually took me a while to get through the second one, it didn’t hold my interest as well as the first.
And I’m reading ~ The Bridge Across Forever, another favorite by Richard Bach, it’s good to reread these old favorites. Here’s a couple quotes from this book ~
“There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.”
“The only thing that shatters dreams is compromise.”
“The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.”
“That’s what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we’ve changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning.”
So what are you knitting / crocheting / spinning / reading / listening to?
