Friday afternoon, in the middle of my work day, I took a short but well-deserved spinning break. I'd been editing like a fiend all day (all week, in fact), and suddenly I saw a clear patch open up, so I hied myself off downstairs (an advantage of working in a "virtual office," a phrase I still cannot say aloud without smirking or making annoying little quote marks with my fingers).
While I was down there, I thought, "Hey, this room is clean for a change! So why not snap a few pictures from my spinning chair? It will give my blog readers a nice, if somewhat fictional, idea of what I see when I'm working away at my wheel."
The sun was shining, the room looked kind of pretty, and I was hard up for blog posting ideas. So I snapped some pictures, did a bit of spinning, and wandered back upstairs to see where things stood, work-wise.
Shouldn't have done that. Suddenly it seemed like everyone I work with and his or her close relatives wanted something from me...and so the blog post never happened. But I still have the pictures, and things have eased up a bit, so I'm posting them for you now, instead.
The small flyer and half-full bobbin, featuring some light fingering weight alpaca/bamboo blend from Turtlepurl.The fibre close up. The colour kind of reminds me of a fine claret, but that could have been late Friday afternoon power of suggestion.
The view beyond the wheel...looking strangely tidy.
The view below: that blue stuff is actually my yoga mat, which is currently keeping my wheel from sliding out from under me across the hardwood floor. I highly recommend this as a slip-proof substance, although it's not the most attractive floor treatment I've ever used.And finally, the linen-stitch scarf, as it was on Friday. It's progressed some since then, but you'll have to wait until tomorrow for that update. I do like to maintain an aura of suspense, you know.
