We spin, spin spin.
Yes, I have a little fishy in my head singing. Mostly its just a simple mantra that helps me through the endless process which is plying. I love spinning singles, I love the final product, but I absolutely despise the plying process.
I’m hoping that I just hate plying this one because of the fact that I’m working on a deadline. This is supposed to be my entry for the 100% wool category in the Kentucky State Fair. I have to turn in my entries on Sunday. Which means I only have a few days to finish plying, soak, thwack, and dry. I’m feeling the stress.
Alex keeps reminding me that it isn’t a big deal if I don’t get it finished. I just wont enter it. I wouldn’t be loosing any money. The KSF only requires one entry fee per general category and I’m entering other things. But for me its a matter of pride. This is probably the most gorgeous yarn I’ve spun to date. It will most likely end up being a two-ply light fingering, which for someone who has only been spinning for a year and half (in my mind) is most impressive. I want to see that ribbon.
So for now, just keep spinning.
