Spinners block?

Or mental block? Either way, this is ridiculous. I've got that tiny bit left to spin on that bobbin. I've had absolutely nothing to do all afternoon since 12:30, and I only have to be out of the house around 3:10. That's 2hrs and 40mins of time I've wasted, doing nothing but opening the cupboards, cruising the webs, tweeting about my dilemma, and now blogging it, and general 'screwing of the pooch' as it were. All the while it would have taken me maybe 30mins to finish spinning that. What is wrong with me? It's something I love to do, it's not like its hard or something. I just can't get to the point where I can ply. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that that is supposed to be my final project for level 2? Maybe it's a fear of completion? Fear of failure? Fear of success even? Or a fear of completion leading to success which will make failure feel even worse? Or maybe I'm just lazy today. Or all of that. I don't know but I'm kicking my own butt right now for not finishing it. Oh well. There's always tonight, right?

  1. Or maybe it's the wool speaking. It doesn't want to be whatever it is you're going to make it into so it won't let you finish spinning it. These things happen, you know.

    1. Or that. I'll blame the wool for having a mind of its own. Or it's that I know that there are at least 2 spots in each bobbin that are thicker then the rest and I don't want to find out its more... Cause then I definitely won't be using for my final project... Yeah fear of failure for sure.... No no... The wool. It's the wools fault. You're right! Thanks for pointing that out!;)

  2. Maybe it is like approaching the end of a good book. You don't want it to end. The wool feels soooooooooo good!!!! Go. Touch it. You know you want to.

    1. I did it. I finished the bobbin. Now I will let it rest before plying. Since the first bobbin sat for quite a while, I'll give it 2days. And hopefully in those 2 days, I get over my fear of it being ugly. Lol
