St. Distaff's Day; Or, the Morrow after Twelfth-day
Partly work and partly play You must on St. Distaffs Day: From the plough soon free your team; Then cane home and fother them: If the maids a-spinning go, Burn the flax and fire the tow. Bring in pails of water then, Let the maids bewash the men. Give St. Distaff' all the right: Then bid Christmas sport good night, And next morrow every one To his own vocation.'
In honor of St. Distaff's day, I spun this wool/alpaca for the KR spinning exchange. I handled the alpaca better this time.
I also finished the 15th square of the Aran Afghan. More importantly, I think I finally got a good picture of one of the squares. I hate bobbins, but oh well. The tree motif is pretty. And...I did this OFF A CHART and DID NOT READ THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS! This is a big, big, big accomplishment for me.
