Mmm…. lazy. February 3, 2008

Filed under: Sex,Socks,Spinning — wayoffiber @ 5:44 pm


I had the most fabulous, lazy day yesterday. After sleeping all snuggled into a bed with two lovely ladies (on the outside, fortunately — warm, but not too hot), I spent a good portion of it lazing around on the same bed with the same two lovely ladies. Wooot! My sweetie wasn’t feeling quite herself, so her dear wifey and I got the chance to chatter a lot and there was more collective snugglage than there would have been, had aforementioned sweetie been up for beating and fucking. Mmmm… fucking…

Unfortunately, I discovered that reaching orgasm while not-breathy is not-easy. Fuck you, asthma, and the horse you rode in on. Stay out of my sex life!!

On a more serious note, I find lots of thoughts about monogamy, non-monogamy, polyamory, commitment, and general issues of life plan fluttering about my head a lot these past few days. It couldn’t have felt more natural for sweetie to play lazily with my pubes while I lay half atop her and her dear wifey was lounging next to us. Something tells me this is not the way people usually feel about these things. It’s like my girlfriend leaving and the process around it broke me open to new experiences, new ways of being, rather than just breaking me. These same thoughts are trying to weave into thoughts of spiritual aloneness and community — there are thoughtfishies swimming around in there, just waiting to come together into some kind of new discovery or epiphany. I can feel it, but I don’t know where it’s going quite yet…

Oh, and I have four skeins of handspun hanging to dry in my bathroom at the moment. My favorite is wool/alpaca in a whole range of swirly, grey, and earthy tones. I wonder if it’s enough to make toe-up anklets — the texture seems right for it.

This one made me think of my lawyer-sweetie.  There’s black and white (traditional colors of Justice), but on closer examination, there’s actually bits of color and the black is really grey… like life.  And, in real life, Justice.  I know.  Totally geeky.  The grey strand is wool/suri alpaca and the white strand is wool/bamboo/silk noil.  Also totally geeky.

Justice yarn.

There’s also some red yarn, but the pic turned out crap.  And there’s some linen,

Wet spun linen

which made me want to poke my eye out and sleep for a hundred years.   Maybe that’s what Aurora was doing – trying to spin flax?

More on how to spin flax soon — because the advice I found online was either crap or nonexistent.

    So have you ever used fiber related objects during the course of……intercourse?
    And what’s the deal with linen? Does it break easily, or not flow well, or what? Tell me woman! I must know!
    And I really like the black/gray/white skein. The explanation of the colors makes me love it more.

    Unless you mean pulling a towel under my butt because I’m going to gush all over the sheets… no?


    Flax just isn’t grabby — the fibers are all in line with each other, but they slip past each other too slickly. So you get the outside of the fluff wet with your fingers, which makes the outside less slippery, but smoother in appearance, but the inside is slippery still and if you overdo it you get a lump because it’s all wet and stuck-together inside. And it breaks, and I cuss.

    And it breaks, and I cuss.

    And it breaks and I… well, you get the idea.

    I want to spin yarn and give it to people — roomie is bemused that, with the stash I have, my new hobby involves making more stash and having less time to use it up. She threatens that I’ll come home some day and, having run out of space for yarn, find her and Sappho sleeping on piles of it in the middle of the floor.
