keeping up with spinning

I haven't been great this year at spinning 15 minutes a day. I started off strong the first couple of months and then there was a big dropoff. However, I try to remind myself that I'm doing much better in 2019 than I did the previous year, when I only spun about 8 oz for the entire year. I finally finished this Nest targhee that was a club braid from 2016. I washed it but I haven't reskeined yet so I don't know how much yardage I have. This one will likely go in the shop because although I love the colors I'm accumulating too much handspun for the rate that I'm knitting it up.

My next project I'm pretty sure I will keep. I've been hoarding this Hello Yarn corriedale in Poisoned Apples from 2017. I love the colors so much and so far it's been a dream to spin. I'm spinning both braids as a 2ply fractal. I think I want to knit a shawl but I'll figure it out when I've finished the yarn. I've actually been spinning more the past week or so--I think these lovely braids and the fact that I want to knit with them are a big motivating factor.
