You knew this was coming! I am stuck in a comfort zone I can’t escape.
No matter what I do, I just keep ending up spinning the same yarn over and over again (like I am with my life path!)
Is it me, the equipment, or the fiber that makes it happen?
What else is out there? I am overload when I even attempt to think about what to try next…stuck with stash I don’t dare to spin ‘cuz I’m afraid I’ll ruin it. I’ll just do what I’ve always done.
Do you hit a wall working towards a specific goal like I often do? I just want someone to make me try something new that I never would have thought of, that I can’t make myself try, that might push me to a new level I didn’t expect.
Would tricks like spinning while walking, standing, sitting, talking, spinning blind…amaze you? Well, maybe only if you spin? The trick–the only real trick–for me is practice. The hard part, of course, is having a clear sense of what to practice. This gets extra complicated ‘cuz everyone is different and needs to work on slightly different things. So, what works for you isn’t necessarily the right advice for me. Profound? You’ve got to admit…that does sound pretty, dang profound, doesn’t it? Yeah, I thought so too.
I spent an evening finger twisting, thigh spinning, stick spinning, winding up in center-pull balls, plying my yarn, finishing my yarn, and getting ‘em ready for use.
How do you like my fiber bash? Do you spin? Yes? Do have a secret spinning shame you want to admit and find a way past it? Or maybe a pet peeve that nobody understands and you want to work through it?
Like me, are you afraid to try spinning something totally unlike your personality? What spinning thing wouldn’t you even try unless someone double-dog-dared you? I have a few ideas up my sleeve. Lets see if it will work out…
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
