First, welcome to everyone who has jumped aboard -- I think I've got everyone's name listed on the main page, but if you don't see it there, or if I've linked incorrectly or something equally dim-witted, pop me a line or leave a comment here and I'll fix it.
Second, as I mentioned in the comment to the previous post: I'm not affiliated with any groups elsewhere, such as on Ravelry, so be clear that if you want to join the fun (much more high-key, I'd imagine) over there, you need to go and see what they're up to. That's fine with me -- the idea is just to get people spinning towards some kind of challenge, so wherever, however. I've just been out here the last four years doing my low-key thing because that's how I am. You are most welcome to join me; you are most welcome to join the festivities elsewhere. It's all cool.
Third, and the most interesting to me, anyway -- it seems that an old shoulder/neck problem has decided to flare up this week, so if it persists, I will be doing *very* little spinning at all. So my challenge will be to accept that, because I can't change it; to do what I can; and when I can't spin, to work on knitting up a couple of projects started with my handspun that are languishing, to get them off the plate by the end of July.
As always, you may choose to change your goal mid-stream if you find yourself struggling. If in a couple of weeks my shoulder is better, I'll likely work on a couple of spinning projects I need to clear out of the way as well -- by I'll be playing it by ear.
Now, where is the team massage therapist when you need one?
