Tour de Fleece / TDF KAL 2009

Consider me paranoid if you will, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the canine and feline members of this establishment were in cahoots to ensure that only what they considered a 'reasonable' amount of spinning was done today ...

Just because I could hardly walk after yesterday's marathon, they seem to think that I'm incapable of following sensibly pre-set parameters

So I gave up and knitted instead*
the Ice Queen cowl in overdyed BWM 2ply is coming along nicely [ and in case you're wondering,that turquoise is only a provisional cast-on which will get yanked out later ]

and after all the 'helping', this is how much spinning got done

and before I forget, a big "Thank-you" to Kate for her suggestion in the comments which totally helped with my pain management issues.

Kate/Massachusetts said... "When you sit to spin, try adding a second cushion to your seat so that your hips are higher than your knees. I don't know why it works for me but I seem to be able to spin longer and more comfortably in that position. "

That dam Bear is much to cute for his own good.....Moggie is not allowed to read this so neither are your Moggies.

My cats love the roving. They generally leave it alone until I want to spin it.

I don't have trouble with my knee when I spin but my ankle. I have an old single treadle and of course the ankle I dislocated is the one I treadle with. I've tried switching but it's not working. I'm investigating an ankle brace to see if it helps. (someone suggested I just give up the spinning. As if.)
