If ever there was a time that I needed this skill, now is that time. There are so many different things I am committed to right now, all equally important. I have classes to teach, inventory to make, production for the TV series and Farmer’s Markets to attend.
This week is involving a lot of back to back events and double bookings. Please don’t hate me if I end up having to move or cancel something. I’m juggling as quickly as I can.
My focus this week is to start to replenish the hand spun inventory. It never occurred to me that I would sell it all. I had spun what I calculated would last for the rest of the season…..This after I finish with my gigantic piles of flax.
I have to tell you my experience with flax was not a good one. Thank god the fairy tale turns it in to gold. I found my long draw harder to control and my finished fibre felt like binder twine. But hey, you can’t get more authentic than that.
I can hardly wait to attempt it on the Great Wheel. In the meantime, the Sonata is up to the task and treating it just fine. I was thinking that I also might get a pair of spinning goggles as I ended up with a serious case of flax eye. I am working on this post through scratchy wet eyeballs after letting Pearl first, then John dose me with crazy drops.
