Last Thursday was an excellent day! Well other than the fact that I am sick now.
Early in the morning I went off to school, and I have to walk ten minutes from where I park everyday, and then ten minutes back. Its not terrible, but it is quite a change from high school, I feel like I am outside all the time now! Usually I love my 20 minute walk, I wear all the proper clothes for the weather and I am a camper so I am pretty skilled in that department.
But Thursday was wet, like REALLY wet I wore my bright yellow down to the knee rain coat and by the end of the walk my umbrella was turned inside out and my pants from the knees down where absolutely glued to my legs they where so wet.
Then I threw some pottery on the wheel for three hours, our homework assignment was to make three cylinder’s on the wheel, I made 2 bowls and 7 cups, one that was a little more of a decoration than a drinking glass.
But back to Thursday because it was so excellent, mostly. I walked back to my car to go home for a little bit before my next class and when I went outside it was snowing! Yes I am so ready for snow, however I was dressed for a rainy warm-ish day. My pant legs turned to ice and I had no sweater on under my raincoat.
I payed for parking when I returned back to the school for my 1:00 class which makes my walk under a minute to get inside the warm dry college. Between my 1:00 History tutorial and my 5:00 drawing class, the woman who sold me the 3 angora rabbits came over to help me shear them for my first time. It was great and I got much more fiber than I even expected which was a pleasant surprise.
So now I am spinning angora mixed together with silk, I hope to do 2 ply and then knit it into mittens. My first hand-raised, hand-spun, hand-knit project.
Ugh I am so sick though! sniffle sniffle.
I don’t really have classes next week just a meet-the-teacher-for-10-minutes-and-chat-about-your-progress type thing. But my boyfriend is in University exams all week! What will I do all day by myself !
Weave a blanket I suppose…. by the way, the warp is all made, but my mom was having a Christmas party so things had to stay neat and tidy, and I didn’t want to start setting up my loom. Though I am sure her guests would have loved to ask questions and see some of the progress.
Not everyone has a loom in there living room you know.
