Thinking About It Thursday

This week, I'm thinking,..

  It's like candy! (Dyed roving for spinning)

It's like candy! (Dyed roving for spinning)

  • About whether invisible thread or red thread would work better.
  • How good it feels to sleep without needing a pill.
    • And how fantastic a luxury a hot cup of non-toxic coffee is first thing in the morning*.
    • With fat-free French vanilla creamer, of course.
  • About whether I'm awake enough yet to hold a drop spindle for any length of time.
    • So I can play with all the pretty pretty colors of roving I was just gifted by an online friend. (Thanks, friend!)
    • And how pretty all colors are, really.
  • About whether I feel like messing with invisible thread, in any case.
  • That it's probably time to change my needle before using either invisible or red thread.
  • How I need to iron 20 purple scarves again because I re-purposed some of my hand-dyed scarves as table runners for our work event and they were rather haphazardly folded as we were breaking down and packing on the last night.
  • How I need to count all the scarves again to remind myself of how many I have left to dye in the next few weeks.
  • How red thread would probably look best.
  • That I've got very old dye concentrates sitting in my dye studio that probably just needs to be tossed.
  • About whether or not I can get another batch of purple dye concentrate out of the powder I have left.
  • That I really need to stop clicking on Craftsy sale emails.
  • About whether or not I've got enough scarves left to dye or will have to do one more order.
  • About whether I've got the right shade of red thread.
  • That I should make another batch of soup.
  • That my dogs seem to have finally forgiven me for July.
