After 7.5 excruciatingly long weeks, I was finally able to put weight on my ankle. Shortly after that, even though I was still walking on crutches, I sat down in front of Millie, my wheel, again. My very first spin was the two “Twilight” batts I’d done while out of commission. It turned into a really bulky, fun, lumpy two ply.

As I was slowly able to spin a little bit more, I became hopeful that I would be able to take some classes at Olds Fibre Week, a week long event that happens annually at a small agricultural college an hour north of Calgary. So, I put it out to the universe that I would be healthy enough to attend and booked into classes.

Now, on to my next fibre adventures.
