Self awareness

Recently, I bought myself a spindle (I had fibre, my wheels were >1000km away...)

I'm not very good at it yet - the spindle drops  with (admittedly, decreasing) frequency. My housemate T asked me why.

In the past, I think I may have come up with some great reasons.

Because I was trying to spin too fine a yarn for the spindle weight.
Because I was distracted by conversation.

The answer I gave?

Because I'm still a bit shit.

Maybe this is what self-awareness is.

Maybe I'm growing up.
