Still going strong

Well strong may be a bit of an overstatement, but it is now 15 days into the new year and I am still keeping up to my knitting every day. There has been more than one day where I have only knit a row or two, so progress is still slow, but its something. I also want to spin at least once a week, but so far that hasn’t happened. I may have to spend time making up for it soon and start spinning at least during Jonathan’s nap on Saturdays. He is at a far too grabby age to spin with him awake in the room. My wheel can’t even be stored in the living room right now. I’m hoping that before too long it will be able to move back into the living room with the family where it belongs.
I really want to get back into selling my handspan on Etsy, but I have almost no inventory so I suppose I need to remedy that. I have a lovely batt from Dawning Dreams that is just waiting to be made into some beautiful yarn. Dawn is a very lovely lady in Oklahoma, that I met at the Fiber Christmas in July. She was a very delightful person to talk to and I pretty much fell completely in love with her batts. She’s one of those people that I wish I live closer to because I’d love to have time to spin with her and pick her brain on batt making. Honestly I don’t know when of have time to do it, when I am struggling some nights to knit a single row and have almost no time for spinning. I am remedying that though. I’d take a drop spindle to work but I don’t really take breaks other than to get coffee or go to the bathroom, and my lunch is spent eating lunch. I am not sure where else I have time in my day, but I will do some investigating. I will post some pictures soon, but until I get some taken, you can have a picture of my sock bun curls:
