Some evil person was operating heavy machinery on my street at 5:30 AM this morning and it woke me up. Not much. It only woke up up enough to make me crack an eye, grumble, and roll over. But then I sneezed and sneezed again and then again. That of course alerted the feline wonder twins that I was officially awake and it was time for them to begin their regular morning demands for food-now-omg-FOOD!
What do I do with myself when I’m awake at the butt-crack of dawn? I spin. Knitting and crocheting require me to have eyeballs that focus and a functioning brain. But spinning I can do blindfolded while doped up on Benadryl. Or you know, when I’m still half-asleep.
A Guide For Getting Ready To Spin Outside on a Chilly Morning
…and your me …and you live with a very bad kitty
Step one: Put some handknit socks on your feet (cuz its chilly).
Step two: Hang the fiber bag made for you by a special friend way up high where the very bad kitty can’t reach it.
Step three: Put the coffee mug sweater on the coffee mug to keep it warm (I’m telling you its 72 degrees this morning! brrrr) and get yourself a healthy breakfast.
Step four: Set out a cardboard box with a crocheted blanket for the very bad kitty.
Step five: Get the spinning wheel.
Step six: Chase off the very bad kitty that got out of her box and stole your chair while you were taking all these pictures
Step seven: Rescue your healthy breakfast from the very bad kitty.
Step eight: Spin.
I hope you got to sleep in, unlike me. If not, I have plenty of coffee and roving to share and you can even borrow the very bad kitty. But get your own donuts cuz I don’t share those.
