Ughhhh…this Op Top hat is taking forever…
I mean it’s cool lookin’ and all, but holy shit, it is slow going. I was really hoping that I would wrap this little hat up by FRIDAY, but ugh, I’m stilling strannnnnding along. Granted, watching the Olympics while clapping like a drunken seal and crying does not help with knitting speed. But with that said, I found that when I switched from my Addi-Turbo needles to my Knit Picks nickel plated needles (to magic-loop the top of the hat) everything sped up. Those Addi needles were totally slowing me down even though the packaging said they are suppose to be turbo…TURBO. Not only are they not turbo they are blunt as shit. I was misinformed…lied to…deceived. I’m crushed.

Okay! Moving on! Spinning!
I haven’t made a ton of spinning progress, but it is moving along. Pretty right?
I really, REALLY like spinning. I’m getting faster and more comfortable with my spindling and I’m looking forward to finishing off this batch of roving so that I can ply it up (new skill – eeeeeeeee!).
I just have to say – JAMAICAAAA! Woot woot!!! I mean seriously! They own the 100m race. I really need to get my hands on some of those Jamaican yams because clearly they put your ass in gear (you know, that and natural talent and years of training. Details.) 😉
