I get bored.

Visually. So I changed my blogger template once again. I know, I do this a lot, but you should see how much I change my desktop wallpaper!!

Also, I noticed that someone's blog I read is using the exact same template, without the header modified, and I just really wanted my blog to look different.

So I went template hunting today and found 3 that I like, so not only do I have this lovely creation (which took little editing I might add, and has a search function to boot!), I have two more waiting in the wings when I tire of this glowing blueness.

On a more fibery note, I called Amie today and she went with me to Cloverhill to play on the wheels they have there. (THANKS Chris!) It was great and I learned a bit as well.

I have been spinning a lot more than knitting lately because ever since finishing the Flower Basket Shawl, I haven't managed to complete anything else. I don't know if it somehow cooked my little knitter's brain to do it in 4 days, or if I just now hold myself to a higher standard on my projects. I don't know. What I do know is that I rip a lot, and I get frustrated with lack of progress, which makes me not want to knit. Which means even less progress. It's circular and frustrating, so I spin instead. And I am happy, and at the same time, I make yarn. So... that's good right? Right?

But I digress.

I learned today that I prefer double treadle wheels. I really liked the Ashford Joy, but it was the only double treadle they had out to use, so I have to find more double treadles to try out and see if it really is the Joy DT that won my heart, or just the double treadleness of it. Time will tell.

Wow - this is truly electric blue!

You can borrow Wendy when Amie is done if you want to try an Ashford Traveller, and then you can try Alice at the next spinning meetup if you like. I like double treadles too.

Nice! Love the blue (really woke me up!)

I know what you mean about negative progress - it is really discouraging and frustrating! The mojo will come back though - the heat isn't helping either!
