Countdown

6 October, 2009 at 11:43 am (knitting, spindles, spinning)

Ten days left ’til I leave for Rhinebeck and I couldn’t be more excited or panicked. The shop is shut down so I can start labeling and packing spindles, because I am not waiting for the night before to do it like I did last year. Viv has been washed and blocked and fits perfectly—

so once the clasps get here I can sew ’em on fast and that will be done too.

I was also hoping to get in one last skein of handspun before potentially handing over my bobbin to have copies made,

but this is only the first ply so that may or may not happen.

Still on the to-do list: finish up the last handful of spindles, label and pack them as noted above, figure out what knitting and spinning projects to take with me, and clean this place up a bit so I don’t come home to a disaster area.

(That last one might end up being too much to handle. We’ll see.)

    PS Your wheel is seriously stunning too — as is the yarn you are creating on it!
