Struggling against Apathy

I went to a craft fair on the end of May. It is held in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture and it's one of the largest and most popular craft fairs in this country. It was my first time to go there.
I bought a tenugui ( a kind of long handkerchief, about a yard long), two bags of cashmere web, and a skein of silk yarn from Avril (you may know it as Habu).

I'm suffering from not-feel-like-to-do-anything feeling for almost half a year. I've done some knitting, crochet, tatting, and spinning, but none makes me feel happier as before. Even going to see kabuki doesn't attract me. How sad.
I've been prohibited by myself to write or say it, but it is time to be honest a bit.
I'm not going to stop doing them. I feel so just because I'm always lack of sleep.

Anyway, now I have some cashmere with me and I want to spin it with long draw method using a supported spindle. I believe that would give me soft and nice yarn. I tend to twist too much.
So, I just pick up my Tabachek Tibetan spindle and started spinning gray merino top. It's so beautiful, and also so soft and fun to spinning with.
Yeah, I still feel fun.
