Heading off into the Abyss

Well I have gone and done it. It came to me in the middle of the night if I went and bought some fiber, I could dye it and sell it at retreat which is exactly 16 days from now. I figure what I do not sell I can give to Kristine to sell in her shop. It will also get me in good dyeing shape for the classes I am teaching in September.
So now I have 20 lbs of fiber on its way to me and a slew of dye too. I figure I have a couple days before it all gets here. Then pandemonium will rain. I am insane, this will be crazy to do but what the hell.

Spinning

I have been plying a lot of yarns. This group is from a set I bought at the Fiber Fair.













Here are just some balls I found in my stash that needed plying. I have no clue what I will use these for. Probably throw them in to a blanket.














I am discovering that I just love this book
Refuse to Choose by Barbara Sher. Its for people who have more than one interest in life and can't decide on one thing to stick with. That is right up my alley. I discovered I am a scanner a cyclical one other wise knows as a Sybil. I stick with things for awhile and then move on but I come back to them again. I guess dyeing is the perfect example for that. The book is excellent on explaining it all and has great ideas on how to organize your life, choose a career that fits you and so forth. It is very empowering. I can't wait to put some of the ideas into practice.

Hi Kate,
Glad to see that you are trading the little ATC's with Ang.(Me too) I did my first trade when we did the Spring 4x4's.
