The traditional holiday for spinners and weavers is the 12 days following Christmas, ending on January 6th, which is distaff day - the day the spinners go back to work. I like to spend those 12 days engaged in a major project to test my limits. Create something for me. One year, I carded by hand, spun, and knit an entire sweater. It was intense. This year, I don't have as many days off, so I'm doing a bit of the prep work in advance. I still have loads of spinning to do, so it's going to be a challenge to get it done in time. But fun!
