Eeek its already June !?!?!

I thought I would be a better blogger this year, but alas, nope.  Only 10 posts so far this year ...

Just for fun, here's Riley about to take over the bed ... he looks pretty serious no?  He's quite a fragile little being, however, a sweet, gentle, giant, but a little high strung at times ...


For June I have been focusing on supported spinning.  My plan for the rest of the year is to pick a craft each month and focus most (not all) of my energies on it.  Since I have oodles of supported spindles (like I can count 19 I can see that are displayed in a rack ... that DOES NOT include the ones I can't see at the moment, its probably safe to almost multiply that number by 2 ...) I am thinking I should probably actually USE them ...


This is a lovely from Silly Salmon Designs in Black Palm (I also have a bowl in that) and bloodwood ... and since they are the spindle maker of the month on a Ravelry group I frequent ... well I might have purchased another that I received recently ...


Let's not forget the oodles of drop spindles I have also - these two never used until last month ...



Unfortunately (or not) my default spinning is THREAD, so some of these projects take FOREVER and a day to finish.

I am happy to say that I have finished three - YES THREE - pairs of socks so far this year - I think my goal was six.  Hey its June - look at that - ON TARGET!  And I am working on the fourth at the moment, which is half done, I have A sock.  I still have to post photos of 2 of the pairs I have finished, photos are hard, yo!  

Photos are a difficult part of blogging for me and often it prevents me from posting ... nobody wants to see dark, crappy photos ...  Usually when I am in the mood for blogging its late and hard to get good photos, like now at 10:40pm ...

I know, I know, take the photos during the day and post whenever ... I HAVE a brain, I just choose to ignore it most of the time ...

What a pretty boy! He looks very sweet.

I am intrigued by spinning, and I think I'd like to learn. But I'm also worried I'd end up with another obsession ... ;-)
