Knitting and spinning, an addicts lament 2


There are never enough hours in the day when you craft. This is even more noticeable when you enjoy more than 1 craft.

If I only knit then maybe, just maybe there would be hours enough.

If I just dyed stuff then possibly there may be enough time in a day for it.

If I just played with fibre and my wheel then yes, possibly, the day would be the right length.,

The trouble is I want to do all of these things and more.

I want to spin, dye, knit all at the same time.

Time is not elastic, it doesn’t stretch that far.

It does however stretch far enough to enjoy what I do and when I do it. Can we ever ask more than that?

I am very lucky that I have a supportive husband who also enjoys his crafts. He spins as you know, he makes railway layouts for the garden and he makes me things I might need for my crafts.

I now have a Suzie Pro spinning wheel and no means of plying my yarn.

No problem, Mr Mog went away with a bobbin or three to his magic shed and arrived back a short while later with a tensioned lazy kate that fits 3 Majacraft bobbins and also fits other types.

He wasn’t content with that.

When I mentioned I was planning to blog for P/Hop he went back to the shed and made a second one. ” Put this on Ravelry and ask for a donation to P/Hop” he said.

It has gone and a Raveller was pleased to donate to P/Hop for it.

We none of us can do as much as we would like for all the worthy causes there are. But each of us in our own way can do a little.

After all P/Hop stand forĀ  Pennies per hour of pleasure.
