I decided to rip into one of my BMFA Sheep2Shoe kits. The colorway is Pink Granite and I'm loving how it spins up. Like butter!
Today has been spent working up my resume, which is going badly. I hate writing resumes. I hate selling myself. I don't feel particularly marketable.
Yesterday, I plied, washed, thwacked and set some twist.
These are the silk/alpaca blend singles I was spinning up earlier in the week. They've been Navajo plied (on a spindle) and I've got what looks like maybe a sport or DK weight yarn as a result. Very happy with it. Bloomed up beautifully and has a slight halo. Can't wait to make something yummy out of it.
So guess which thing I preferred doing? I'm here to tell you, it wasn't all those hours spent cursing at MS Word and my crap employment history!
I'm going to go read Jobhopper by Ayun Halliday again. It seems fitting.
