Wanted: Brain for Hire
In many ways waiting to hear back about my 81 paged Masters Thesis has been more agonizing than 3 years of procrastinating and actually writing the damn thing. I've not been good for much other than sitting on the couch and occasionally remembering to wipe the drool away.
If I had to post one picture that expressed in 1000 words or less my general feelings of the past week it'd have to be this one.
Happily things are happening in Casa de Fickle despite my sluggish thesis angst.
I've been knitting through my hand spun yarn in an effort to understand better what it is I'm making. Below is a hand knit cowl I designed. The yarn I used spun from Funky Carolina wool was the second batch ever spun on my wheel. The pattern itself looks obscured and soft caused by the thick and thin nature of my beginner yarn. Eventually I'll release the pattern, it takes 90 yards of bulky yarn and knits up lightening fast.
I also created my first Surprise! You Spun Art Yarn!1! Which accidentally occurred when I attempted to take out extra twist by quickly running the over-twisted Romney through my wheel (successfully taking out all twist). After lots of hand wringing and much cussing I took the parts that were drifting apart and plied them with the remaining over spun batch of yarn. Shockingly I love the results. Hopefully that won't doom me from repeating this technique.
Perhaps the biggest development has been the decision to distribute my patterns wholesale in print.
Scary as hell but exciting too.
