I wrote earlier this week about how writing helps me to feel grounded. My other main go to when I need grounding is fiber.
I have lots of fiber-y pursuits. Often several are in progress at the same time.
At the moment I have a hand-spun Tibetan Mastiff scarf on the needles,
yak on the wheel,
and a bag of washed Tibetan Mastiff ready to be carded.
I also have yak/merino and alpaca patiently waiting on needles. Sock yarn on a crochet hook, cotton on a bobbin and cashmere on a spindle. Not to mention a large stash of raw alpaca that is ready to be skirted.
Working with the animals and their fiber goes a long way toward keeping me focused on the things that matter most.
