So after 3 weeks of constant searching, sending out resume's and hoping to high hell. I finally landed a job over in Dallas with Starwood Hotels & Resorts. Not exactly what I wanted but it'll pay the bills until I can find something I really want to do. What I am really looking forward to now is being able to FINALLY afford to get a spinning wheel so I can really do some spinning and make some good quantities of yarn and knit something really nice with it. Spinning with the drop spindle has been great and I love its portability, but I just can't make enough yarn to knit something it seems and plying with a spindle is a real b****. I'm also looking forward to buying some nice fibers to spin, what I've been using is needle felting wool roving from a craft shop (it was super cheap and good to practice with, but coarse as hell). So, as of right now I am in the process of being "processed" (drug tests, background checks, paperwork etc.) by HR at the new hotel. Once I get done with that I can start working and pulling in some paychecks. On top of my fiber addiction, I also have car payments and student loan payments that are just aching to be paid! So Ill be sure to keep you updated as to which wheel I get and what fibers I plan to spin (Im strongly leaning toward the Kromski Minstrel or Fantasia). Right now Im knitting a winter beanie hat out of 100% Alpaca Handspun yarn I brought back with me from Germany. It was 8 Euros a skein but I couldnt resist because it looked so squishy and comfy! Ill post pictures soon, just started decreasing for the crown of the hat.
