Spin, spin, spin


Besides my work day, that's about the sum total of my accomplishments yesterday. I spent a few hours spinning Shetland, and I think that it will be a really nice addition to my year of Estonia/Orenburg lace knitting. We'll see. So far it's looking like a 2 ply lace, but a bit neppy and noilly due to second cuts. I think it will be good in the long run.

I didn't ride yesterday.. as I was about to leave I heard 'chances of snow flurries', and rejigged my plans. Instead of snow flurries there was a quick, fierce blizzard, and now the roads and sidewalks are in pretty poor condition for a safe ride home from work. I think I'm going to have to use my fluid trainer for the next couple of months. I had to laugh tho.. on the way home, as I was stopped at a light, I saw a young man, sans helmet, lights or even any warm clothes, riding home on his unicycle.

He is the winner.

Winner of what? The young and stupid award?

I was thinking that it should maybe be spelt "weiner".

(If he'd been properly dressed I'd've applauded though.)

I know it's been nice for a bit but it is Canada and it is winter.
