Today was better than yesterday was. I have to say I appreciate all of the support I get from you guys when I'm feeling down. Sometimes you just need to hear (read! ;D ) it.
In good news I finally did get my roving reattached and I've been being a little more careful. I've also been trying to spin it more before letting it onto the bobbin because I think that will help it to not come apart when it does break. So far I've broken it at least 3 more times lol. And have had a somewhat easy time reattaching. I think yesterday I just wasn't in the kind of patient mood that was required. I also hate this roving. I mean I love it but I hate it too. The fibers seem to be shorter so that makes it hard to draft the way I like to. But it's going to be gorgeous and that makes it worth it!
I have a picture of the sock progress I made today. I seriously don't want to put this sock down. It's so easy and addicting. Not to mention I love it in this yarn.I have decided to only knit the cuff length to 6 inches. Not because I'm lazy (or cheating! Melissa ;D ) but because any longer would feel weird on my leg to me. I tried it on and when I put the top of it to about 8 inches from the top of my heel, it was in a weird spot. 6 inches was perfect. So they will be a tad shorter, but long enough for me!
I LOVE the movie Sixteen Candles. Never fails to put a smile on my face. Something about dreams coming true...
