Rhymes With Fuchsia

In the Blue Zone

Now and then I read an article with a title like "How to Retire Rich." As these articles tell it, the secret is to start early and save consistently, don't think about it too much, and next thing you know it will add up to real money. Leaving finances aside for the moment, I'm finding this to be true of spinning, even when the gorgeous Blue Moon merino that I bought from Amy insists that it wants to be laceweight — maybe a light sock weight by the time it's plied. I joined Carole's Ten Minutes a Day spinning group, and, while I'm not nearly as productive as she is, it's working.

Of course Wendy deserves some of the credit too. When I have her humming along to Mozart's third Prussian quartet, surely the most beautiful piece of music ever written, it's easy to lose track of time.


  • Isn't it great how those 10 minutes really make a difference? That blue is gorgeous.

  • Those are beautiful singles. Carole is right, the 10 minutes really makes a difference. I've been getting at least 30 minutes in per day, between singles, plying, spindle spinning.

  • Exquisite blue! And isn't spinning outside a profoundly zen experience?

  • I'm still not over your amazing wheel. Sigh!
