Yes I do. Just not very much lately. My right wrist is not happy. Here’s a picture of the progress on Ingrid’s second sleeve:
Fortunately, spinning doesn’t hurt. I’m lefthanded and my left hand does all the work. Which leads me to wonder why my right wrist is the one bothering me. Life’s little mysteries.
Thanks for all the enabling on where to go to buy luxury fiber!
Keyboarding hurts too, so this will be brief. But first, a reader question:
I bought a spindle a couple of weeks before you did, but I have no one to teach me how to use it. Do you think you could have learned without one-on-one help? My feeling is a few minutes of being shown would equal several hours of “book learning”. Do you think from your experience this is true, or am I just making excuses for myself?
I myself am generally much happier learning from a person than from a book. Seeing something done live and in 3-D beats reading about it in a book in my opinion. For me, I think this is due in part to the fact that I am lefthanded. All the pictures and diagrams I’ve seen are demonstrated by a righthanded person, and that just adds to the confusion for me.
The instructions I looked at for Andean plying were of course illustrated for a righthanded person. I had to think carefully about how to wrap the yarn to make it work for me.
Samantha mentioned that yesterday’s photo of Lucy made it look like she was giving me the kitty silent treatment after my having been away for a few days. Actually, that was her “I’m freezing — is it too much to ask for you to turn on the frickin’ heat?” look.
I did break down and turn it on after that. It was getting pretty nippy.
Today is a holiday. Thankfully.
