Before beginning the meat of this post, I want to state: I know that there has been a lot of politics involved in the crafting community in 2019. I am glad to be able to support diverse pattern makers, yarn suppliers, and more. I believe that the BIPOC crafting community as well as the LGBTQ+ community should have a voice. I am not willing to comment further on the political actions that some private websites and communities have taken. Onto the crafting!
Tour de Fleece 2019 has started! This is a roundup of my first week, it’s sort of pitiful.
Above are the fibers that I am going to spin this year, mostly the Shetland Moorit that I did not get finished with the Hap-Along. I have been concentrating somewhat on the crocheted sweater that I hope to have completed by September as well as looking for a full-time position. Due to these distractions I have not accomplished as much spinning as I had hoped, though I have managed to spin 4 of the last 7 days. I have made significant progress on my sweater, however it does not look like much right now so I did not bother to take a photo.
Hopefully next week I will have more to report, especially since I will have had my Dyeing Day with the Weaver’s Guild. That reminds me, I’d better wind my cotton warp this week!
Happy Crafting and remember to Live Life A Little More Abstract!
