And then, when my birthday came around I in last december, something snapped. I was like a toddler, it her worst tantrum. I wanted spinning and nothing else. No work, No housework. No university stuff, no study, no paper to write. NO. And I did not care about the possible consequences. Spinning that is what I wanted, and there is one major advantage of being an adult. I can decide if I can afford to put other things aside... and with all the work I've done, I decided that I deserve some fun.
Without any particular plan, I dug out the first fiber I had that was not earmarked for anything particular, I just bought it because I thought it might be pretty and I wanted to try it.
I have a thing for multicolored tops that are striped lengthwise. I love how the colors mixing up during spinning and love the tweedy/heathery effect. (I love tweedy/heathery yarn as well- no wonder).
This one is still slightly overspun, (I still pedal notoriously fast on the wheel) though much less as it used to be, and for once it is very bouncy.
