am i the only one who's getting tired of seeing yarn hanging out to dry?
the trunk show day at K1 Yarns is getting closer (a week tomorrow, to be exact!!) - & it's safe to say that i'm starting to panic. just a little. i've dyed up a whole bunch of yarn, but i still have a whole bunch more that i want to dye. & there's also the handspun - piles upon piles of roving to spin up, some for individual skeins & some for hat kits (& only about half of it has been spun). i've been dyeing & spinning every chance i get, but the weather here hasn't been cooperating. luckily, it was (mostly) sunny today, so once again, i filled the washing lines with dripping yarn.
i've been working so much these last few weeks that - dare i say it? - i'm almost starting to get a bit sick of the sight of yarn. it seems to be all i can think about - how many skeins have i already done? how many more do i want to do? which colours have i already dyed? & what new colour combinations could i try? i'm thinking about yarn while i'm working, while i'm eating dinner, while i should be sleeping. and to try & relax, i'm knitting (even more yarn!). yarn, yarn, yarn, yarn, yarn - every damn day.
it could definitely be worse - i've had a fair few bad jobs in my time, and this (even on its most frustrating & exhausting day) is easily the most fun job i've ever had (it's so fun, in fact, that i'm not sure if i should even be calling it a job - but since one of the goals is to make a living, i guess it qualifies as a job after all). but the long days of hard work are draining, & now that the trunk show is getting closer & closer, i'm starting to get that feeling that you get when you're about to throw what should be a really great party, & you start thinking....
"what if no one comes?....."
