Obviously this has been a dismal failure. The lure of quilting sucked me in no quickly that I wanted nothing to do with other hobbies. People who have been following me for some time probably forgot completely that I was going to try to hand spin and knit in addition to quilting.
Last week I attended the Vancouver Handspinners meeting, and my fingers actually remembered what to do! I spun all afternoon before the meeting so I wouldn't look like an idiot in front of the others. That is the first time I've touched a spinning project since mid-April!
The retreat I'm attending tomorrow through Sunday is the Fort Vancouver Knitting Guild retreat. I'm on the retreat committee so I figured I'd better spend at least part of the weekend knitting. Today I got out my bin of partially finished projects - 11 of them! I chose two different pairs of socks to work on. I hope to come home with at least one completed sock. I picked the two I thought took the least amount of thought - knitting and visiting is a recipe for disaster when knitting a complex pattern. Here are the two I'm taking:
