Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

What is this "slow down" you speak of? Is that what happens when you die? Just laying there all still like? Or do you get to still do stuff? I only have 2 speeds, all go or all stop. I'm not sure there is an in between.
I better find the in between speed.
I went to the doctor and while there are some more tests to run (I think she's just trying to be thorough), she told me I would probably just need to slow it down. This is going to be a learning experience. So I spent yesterday afternoon trying to find some place that has classes in "slowing down". Can you believe it? Not one course. I bet most of you out there already know how to "chill".
Then I read Margene's post. My wheel has been in the shop. I figure it's a good little demo and Baby Boogie likes to play with it too much, pinched fingers owie. I've been spindling lately but the wheel is a little more relaxed. Sure it goes through fiber faster, but I move less. I tend to walk around when I spindle. And then I set the spindle down and someone decides to pick up where I left off.I think she was trying to figure out hwo to make it spin.
Chill out part 1:
I made this:Sugar free of course.
Then Spider Gus came back into the house:
That bag on there is 8 ounces of Cashmere.
If that isn't luxury and calming spinning, I don't know what is. The goal is to spin it as a light sport weight yarn, and to make enough of it for a sweater.
The sweet husbeast suggested I find a knitting and/or spinning group to hang out with. I had hoped that my big shop would be open in February and I'd have one there but it looks like it will be a bit longer. I do have room for a small group of spinners with wheels or a good sized group of knitters. But if any of you Mainers know of a good one in Lewiston/Auburn or the Topsham/Bath/Brunswick areas, let me know.
