So Cookie and Chris clued me in on a great idea that Carole Knits has come up with. Basically you pledge to spend just ten minutes of your day spinning. Since I already spend much of my time spinning on my two wheels, I thought this was an excellent opportunity to commit more time to spindling. Only I haven’t exactly been faithful to my promise, so I’ve decided to proclaim my intentions to the world to see if it makes any difference.
Why can’t I manage a measly ten minutes a day?
It’s not like the project isn’t tempting to the senses. It’s 4 ounces of hand-painted silk roving from A Touch Of Twist that I got from MDSW. But the silk is slippery and I’m never sure how much twist to put into it.
It’s not the spindle either. I adore the featherweight Bosworth I’m using. I love the striping on the Zebrawood and the way it dances when it’s whirling around and around.
Maybe it’s because this project will most likely take forever as the silk is spinning up into a very fine single.
No, it’s not because of any of those reasons. I fear it’s all because of the plurking. It’s a massive timesuck. It’s worse then Ravelry ever was. I swear I sit down for a quick five minutes and two hours go by.
That’s okay though! All I need to do is master my multi-tasking skills, because you’ll have to pry the keyboard away from my cold, dead hands to get me to stop.
I’m still convinced I can manage ten minutes of spindling a day.
As Cookie would say, shut up!
