Ready for a Shock?

Enchanted fingering weight

My plan for today was to card several batts and then spin for a while. My plan did not take into account the four hours I spent gardening yesterday, mostly digging things up and planting them elsewhere where they would be happier. You see where I’m going with this, don’t you? Four hours of digging …
