|Part way through plying|
|A few spare minutes later and the bobbin is full!|
|I wound this off while waiting for salmon to bake.|
And so. I do most of my spinning in short bursts of time. With the exception of the Tour de Fleece, this is pretty much how I do my spinning. Occasionally, I might sit down for an hour or so to relax in the evening, but usually my spinning time is relegated to those little bits of time that open up here and there within a day.
|Spare minutes let me start on another bobbin of this colorway.|
If I have a whole hour, I like to go to my loom. Weaving takes a bit of concentration and I like to have at least 20 minutes free before I will sit at the bench and start treadling. It isn't something I would want to work at while something is on the stove! It is too easy to get lost in weaving and end out with a pot of something burned. But spinning seems almost made for interruptions--it is easy to stop and and pick up again five minutes later. And so spare minutes turn into yards of yarn.
