As away of avoiding any knitting that had to do with a sweater, I spent quite a bit of time with Emmylou (my spinning wheel). In fact, I spent more time spinning this weekend than I did at any time during the Tour de Fleece. It was fabulously enjoyable until the room became too hot. Thus, and in fact, this is why I was a huge FAIL at the Tour. I took the wheel to another room, a cooler room, and that room, since it is rarely used, took Emmylou out of sight and out of mind. When she is in the junque/fiber room she is ready to go, but it becomes too hot in that room early in the day and SO...July is not for spinning in this house.
August apparently is the return of spinning season and spin, Emmylou and I did. Look what we made...
Was your weekend as enjoyable as mine?
(P.S. Knitnana is having a contest. She's celebrating five years of her Nana Sadie Rose company (she makes some of the nicest bags I've ever used) and, not only that but she's celebrating the creation of her 750th BAG! Can you believe she's made that many? You have several chances to win and she's putting together a wonderful gift package. Don't forget to tell her who sent you, okay!? Now, doesn't that alone make a Happy Monday?)
