It’s been a week. Between the kid teething, skipping naps, starting potty training, and generally stretching his “toddler” legs, I’m exhausted. I had plans to rip back my Stonecroft Shawl and get it finished, but I just couldn’t get it together.
Instead, I pulled out a project that hasn’t been touched in literally years. I busted out my spinning wheel.
(To be fair, the spinning wheel sees a lot of action when we have playdates- there’s nothing toddlers loves more than large, slightly dangerous machinery, especially if there’s a wheel involved.)
I pulled out the roving I purchased and started spinning in (Are you ready?) 2016! That’s 4 years ago. I got two-thirds of the way through the roving (and it wasn’t a big chunk of roving either!) and just stopped. I couldn’t tell you why- must have just gotten bored or something.
Anyway, I pulled it out again, and got spinning. It’s looking good, I think, and the actual spinning seems to be coming back faster than I expected. I guess it’s like riding a bike!
I’ll be curious to see what the yarn looks like when I’m done (since I don’t really have a plan for it), and if I can see a difference between the freshly-spun yarn and the sitting-on-the-shelf-since-the-Obama-administration yarn.
What projects have you resurrected after a long hibernation?
