Yesterday was a confluence of kids doing things that are on the list of things not to do and a mom with PMS. I know. That’s probably too much info, but I don’t know how else to describe the attitudes in our house.
By evening, I had three choices.
1. Hit the chocolate. The only problem was that there was no chocolate in the house and it was still raining.
2. Drink. The only problem with that is that I’ve never been drunk in my life and I don’t intend to start now. I also don’t need a headache.
3. Start spinning. So that’s what I did.
I started with 4 ounces of Blue Face Leicester from Woolgatherings, my favorite supplier of
crack fiber. (I “borrowed” this photo from her etsy site.)
I must spin really fast when I’m irritated, because I spun and plied the entire 4 ounces in an evening. I ended up with 284 yards of 2 ply.
So here’s my thought. If spinning yarn is treatment for PMS, my medical insurance should cover my expenses, right?
