Spin 365/035 2014-02-08 23.41.26

Utilizing all my bobbins - finally I'm a real spinner ;-)
I will have to take a break tomorrow, as we're on the road. Back on monday with the Spin 365.

I am decidedly not a fan of the colour/white combination, but I believe this is the softest yarn I've ever spun.
Woolen longdraw, softly plied.

Then again, Linden IS sooo soft as well!

That's how it looks like.. plying, playing, having fun

Spin 365/032 2014-02-05 22.43.17

Spun up the batt.

Tried to start plying, but the bobbin - I grabbed the next one - is screwed. No luck with oil. :(

Need to find the bobbins left...

Spin 365/031 2014-02-04 23.10.46

You see - no, you don't, I know that - but try to understand, if you spin, you can't take care of your camera battery. It's just not possible.

Enjoyed "The Unit" very much...

Sorry, I'm sick. Spinning with a splitting headache is just not my thing. See you tomorrow in better shape!

I have spun on day 26 en 27 as well, short intervalls in the evening.
Here the result of day 28. Going strong, but I'm thinking about changing the challenge to Fibre 365 instead. Sometimes I really would like to just knit in the evenings.....Am I the only one?

I'm almost halfway through this lovely batt...Finally winter is here, we had two days with subzero temperatures now.

Spin 365/023 2014-01-28 22.03.53

Did it, now I can knit ;-)
Such a hard life .... LOL

Spin 365/022 (1) 2014-01-28 21.13.07

Right. If I commit, I shouldn't try to sleep without doing it. I was wide awake into the early hours of today.
Stood up again, went down, spinning ....

Here you have it. Day 22 done.

I didn't spin today. I knit.
....and I'm so sorry I did, because I have to unravel 6 rows because of a rather obvious error..
Should stay on my goals, even when to tired to do so....

Spin 365/021 2014-01-26 21.34.59

Today I spun a little but mostly knitted.
Lindenbl├╝ten Honig.

Had a lovely restful day. Hope you did as well!

Spin 365/020 2014-01-25 23.15.46

This is the day I took a picture of my flowering Geranium outside on the balcony. On january 25th. Impossible!
Also today: Sorting out the seed-stash - I don't need to buy - save the money for fibre!

I got my club today from Southern Cross Fibre. All in all a smashing day!

...even though I've got a bad cold as well....
Rest and spinning tomorrow. Glorious sunday!

Spin 365/019 2014-01-24 23.05.39

Tehee... of course I had to do it now .... ;)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Spin 365/018 2014-01-23 23.07.45

This evening was the first time ever, that I actually thought to look for the second bobbin of my plying wheel. Never before have I spun two yarns without taking the first for a wash ....'
May I will become a 'real' spinner after all ;-)

Spin 365/017 2014-01-22 22.23.49

I eek out a few minutes a day to spin, time to blog is even more difficult to find, and still.....

I DO seriously contemplate joning the Less is More SKAL on ravelry. I'm already late to start, but hey, I always am.

Would that a day had 38 hours...

Spin 365/016 2014-01-21 23.43.48

Somehow I don't have enough hours in a day.
But I enjoy myself immensely!

Spin 365/015 2014-01-20 23.48

I've found a Grabbag in my stash! Part of it directly jumped on the wheel.

I'm thinking about the SKAL in the SE group on ravelry. Am I mad? I love it!

Spin 365/014 2014-01-20 00.00.33

A lovely quiet sunday.
All plied up.

Weekend, finally! Had a nice spin during the Dutch film "De Eetclub". Well, at least I had fun spinning ;-)

Spin 365/012 2014-01-17 23.57.54

Friday always is a long day around here. Especially when I have to work on saturday. I can go to bed tonight, knowing that I have done all I'm supposed to do, AND I spun.

Have a smashing weekend as well!

Spin 365/011 2014-01-16

Another day, another hour spinning. I very much enjoyed it, once I was settled into it. How come it is so hard to get yourself doing what you love at the end of a tiring day?

I spun today. I work with wool too much it seems. Especially the steel-wool to clean the fryers is doing my hands no good. Just have to get used to it ;-)

I spun, briefly, but I have spun today. No use giving you another picture like the last one, so see here, our "Duiveltje" = "Little Devil". If anybody prevents me from spinning, it's he or Bono, the little dog. Life is good.

Monday, January 13, 2014

Spin 365/008 2014-01-12 23.04.39

It was a wonderful restful sunday. 3 hours walking with Bono in Dronten to distribute advertisements, and a miniseries on television in the evening to spin to. Sometimes wishes come true!

I spun today for 2.5 minutes only. The cats made sure I would not try again.
It happens.

Extremely crappy picture, my camera is on a dart-trip.
Started the second bobbin. Brilliant!

Almost spun to the ounce.
I jumped up short of finishing because I was VERY disturbed by the ending of "Luther".
Man, the English can make detectives!

Love Netflix. Going to bed now, AFTER checking what's under it....

Spin 365/004 2014-01-08 23.02.41

Spun with my two faithful helpers again ;-)

Spin 365/003 2014-01-07 23.52.10

Today I had to force myself to start.

But then, you know how it works, I relaxed into it and had a lovely time.

Thanks David!

Today, I've spun again.
It's "Jewelled Seas" Falkland Wool top from Southern Cross Fibre.

I'm member of this exclusive club for a few years now. Getting a monthly dose of happiness is such a luxury!

This was the shipment from november 2012,

1/365 of the Southern Cross Fibre SAL

There we have it. A few days late, but I will spin every day this year. Started out at januari 5th, because for me the organizing of my stash came first on the list this year, and I somehow missed the starting point of the SAL. Let's have a good year and be contend!
