This morning I attended the Nutmeg Spinning Guild's meeting and had the pleasure of hearing Abby Franquemont speak about spinning and her time in Peru. Maybe some fiber jumped into my tote bag, too. I'm not going to linger on that.
I brought my wheel with me, and I confess, it felt really good to spin. I haven't in quite a long time; a fiber that I had intended to use for my dissertation shawl has been languishing on the wheel (probably a really bad thing. I'm a bad spinner). Today, though, I got the spinning mojo back and had a lot of fun getting the fiber on the wheel. When I saw this, I decided to order one to hang off my wheel. Lendrums are just made to be tricked out.
Before I hit save, I want to ask you to send healing thoughts to Peru, where my oldest niece just had her appendix removed. Her partner is from there, and they were visiting his family when she took ill. His cousin is a surgeon, which I hope made it easier for her to go through so far from home. She won't be home until next week, and I know she must want the comfort of her mom and dad so much. What a terrible twist to her big adventure, poor lovey.
Tonight: grading and UCONN Huskies. Hope you're Saturday is going swimmingly!
