A head cold complete with sinus headache, ringing ears and sensitive teeth
one's house being re-roofed
several (continuing) long days of crankiness and a short attention span.
But that's not always a bad thing.
And then, because I need another interest, this arrived this afternoon. Some Coopworth roving to use with the drop spindle I picked up at the Woolfest several weeks ago. That no one there could figure out how to demonstrate. Did that stop me? No, I'm fearless.
Now I just have to figure out what to do with it (besides patting it). All of you spinners out there, be honest. Doth this roving have charms to soothe the savage beast (whilst the hammering continues overhead? Yes, they will work all weekend.) Or is this just going to throw me over the edge? Any drop spindle book/article/online references and tips from personal experience will be most welcome. In any case, enjoy your weekend!
