Spinzilla Preparation #1

Spinzilla is coming up in a few weeks (October 2-8) and after taking a break last year, I decided to give it a go this year. I am on Team Sweet Georgia, and I will be spinning some of the fiber I have accumulated from my Sweet Georgia Fibre Club. I’m free to spin whatever fiber I desire; it doesn’t have to be Sweet Georgia fiber. But my Sweet Georgia fiber is what I want to spin. More on that later, as we get closer to the start of Spinzilla. But first…

Preparation is important when one is planning to do a shit-ton of spinning is a short, set period of time, and my first step in preparing for Spinzilla is to tidy up my Introvert Room, the room where I putz around on my computer and do much of my reading, knitting, and spinning. I am not a natural neatnik, so I have to make an effort to keep things tidy. As you can see from these “before” pictures, I don’t make all that much of an effort at tidiness in my Introvert Room.

A messy desk is a sign of a cluttered busy mind.

Yes, my wastepaper basket is overflowing. And there are some boxes that need broken down for recycling. And there are two project bags on the floor. And some yarn that needs put away. And a piece of popcorn that escaped from my reading area on the other side of the room. I told you I’m not a neatnik.

There’s way too much stuff in the piano corner. Way. Too. Much.

The reading corner. Yes, it’s really that bad. And yes, that is an empty band-aid box on the red ottoman. And an empty Pepsi bottle on the table.

There’s way too much clutter on my book cases. I blame the Tour de Fleece. 😆

I’ll even give yinz a peek behind the door.

Today* I am going to tidy up, and when I have finished, I will post “after” pictures to prove I did what I said I would do.

*It might take me more than one day to tidy up, it’s that messy.
