You just weren't meant to clean that day. Clearly.


Happy Monday, Kim. What is that spindle? It's so pretty!


Yikes! Now I don't feel so bad about the raglan top-down cardigan I started *five* times over the weekend. I'm using Peace Fleece in a lovely deep green, and I really want to knit the yarn into a sweater that I will love to wear. I finally resorted to using my Sweater Wizard, and if this incarnation doesn't work, I'm giving up on the whole raglan idea. Luckily, the Peace Fleece can hold up to allot of frogging. I started spinning on a spindle and quickly moved onto a wheel---winding onto the spindle broke the rythm too much, and my thumbs were starting too hurt.


Those kind of days were meant for spinning! Sorry it started out the way it did, but all's well that ends well :-)


ooooh, love that spindle and love the andspun on it! who makes that lovely spindle if you don't mind my asking?

Heh, that is the exact reason that I avoid housework!

I can't wait for your next post. I love your yarn, much better than mine. I'd love to compare spindle spinning notes!


To heck with the cleaning when it's going like that. You absolutely made the right decision by chucking it at that point and nursing your creativity. Spin on!

I think it was just a sign that you weren't meant to clean that day. Instead, you were supposed to be spinning. It would have been a lot worse if you had planned a fiber day and everything went wrong. Then, you would have had to resort to housework.


Who needs cleaning when there is spinning to be done :-) I'm looking forward to your next post -- on my mind a lot these days too.


I had one of those days myself yesterday. I gave up.

I'm looking forward to your next post. I am developing a long-overdue appreciation for the spindle after being fairly convinced that the wheel was superior. I'm only now starting to appreciate the merits of both.


Sometimes when it rains, it pours! Thank goodness for husbands that fix things!


Couldn't help but laugh at your "domestic goddess" day! LOL Lord, is there anyone out there who DOESN'T have days like that? I can't wait for your next post...I'm not a spinner...not a clue how it's done...but for some odd reason I've been checking out sites that have those little spindle thingies and keep thinking I would like to learn to do that!!! So, I'm waiting for your next post. :)


I've had days like that and they're no fun. And I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on spindles vs. wheels. Margene and I have been talking about that A LOT lately.


I think I got all of your good cleaning-karma over here - ouch on the splinter! Spindles? When you fall, you sure do fall in headfirst. ;-)


I guess it happens once in a while. I believe that husbands are in charge of all machines....so happy to hear it all worked out in the end. I also spin on a spindle and spin on a wheel....looking forward to your opinion. Have a nice weekend!


What a nightmare, hope your weekend is better, my week certainly improved as it went on.
Can't wait to hear you thoughts on spinning too.


I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on the wheel vs. spindle. My new spindle just arrived this week - it's way easier this time around - now that I know how to spin on a wheel.
