A Well Wound Ball

October 1, 2009

The Festival countdown has begun.

In two weeks it will be here, and when it hits I’ll work 12 to 14 hour days for 10 days straight. A lot of it’s amazing — filmmakers from around the world, outstanding movies, and contagious excitement. It’s good to be a part of something infused with so much energy.

The flipside of that is working 12 to 14 hour days for 10 days straight, hunger, exhaustion and watching my co-workers cry. It’s rough and once it’s over November is practically here. Then it will be time for holiday knitting and sewing.

With a frost advisory tonight and a 7:00 sunset, it seemed to be the perfect time to hunker down, find comfort and wind a ball of baby alpaca. An hour later, 549 yards of golden yarn is wound, waiting for a project which will most likely be on hold for another month.

In the meantime, Jack is taking care of things. He’s watching that ball of alpaca like he might tend a flock.
