In this instance, it is not knitting that I wish I could quite, nor yarn, nor my brand new spinning interest. It's my research project. Stupid horseshoe crabs and their stupid non-model-able data. I've spent 6 weeks trying to redo what I did in my thesis to make it better, and nothing's made it better, and now I'm stuck having one of those weeks where a million deadlines are occurring at once and I wish I could just be a cat instead.
Who else is jealous right now?
Now for happy thoughts: spinning is fun!
I'm working my way through the this Corriedale roving pack dyed by Wysteria Editions available on Knitpicks. Each little bundle is 1/4 ounce, so I've worked through a little over 1/2 ounce of fiber so far.
The resulting yarn is incredibly inconsistent, I'm still struggling with drafting the fibers out nicely, but I'll get the hang of it. I'm just going to spin up this batch into some crazy multicolor novelty-esque yarn that will become the lumpiest knit potholder in all the land. But I'm cool with that because it will still be yarn that I made!
