On Wednesday I posted about my current spinning projects and I had fully intended to do some plying later that afternoon but, as is so often the case, life had other plans. I ended up spending time with friends and binge-reading my current book. All very wonderful things. When it comes to spinning, what I would normally do, is ply the bobbins that need to be plyed to keep them clear for the next spinning project. This time I chose to rebel against my usual ways and fill them all. I was a single-spinning-mad-women and totally loving it. In the basket, pictured above, there is a pound of singles of various fibers and colorways waiting to be picked for their next stage of the journey. Some will be plyed and some will remain singles. Since I have now run out of bobbins, I will be finishing them off as I see fit this afternoon. Sometimes it is nice to break from the expected and do things a little differently.
Are you a crafting rule maker? Do you sometimes like to break your own rules? Tell me your favourite way to rebel 🙂
