I was going to post pictures of the 8/10 finished blankie and of my Red Scarf Project scarf. But I went to the gym today, and it totally wiped me out. Getting back in shape after Lyme disease AND Parvo virus is hard. It's like starting from way below zero. But I'm going to do this. I'm going to be fit in time for one of this year's breast cancer walks.
Edit: Instead of eating and sleeping, I decided to try spinning for the very first time. After having a brain fart and dumping nearly an entire clove of chopped garlic directly into my pasta without sauteeing it first (thereby completely clearing my sinuses, killing any germs in my stomach, and acquiring rancid garlic breath), I should have known better. Instead, I produced this:
Somebody please help me! I don't expect my first handspun to be perfect, but this?
Why is it so tufty? Why are there over-twisted kinks at the bottom, near the hook (this is a top whorl spindle) that won't travel up the roving? What am I doing wrong?
