The Spinalong is having a spin-in starting today. We're spinning from noon today, February 10th, through Noon Monday, February 13th? You can find us here:
Here are the guidelines from KnitterGirl39:
Each person should use these times within their own time zone! (For example: That means if you live in NY, spin… Continue

On Thursday, I received a couple of packages in the mail. One was nylon roving from Paradise Fibers
I'm going to card this with my Shetland wool (and later the Romney and some KP Wool of the Andes spinning fiber) to use for socks this winter. Continue
The other was a lovely shawl from a dear friend who lives far away. I…

It seems absolutely ages since I last had time to do a Blog. It's been all vets, hospitals,doctors, Hay Fever, bad hips and terrible tiredness.
I did manage to get some knitting done, and a bit of weaving, but I am not quite up to date with the photographing of all my makes yet.
This is the Leonora… Continue

So once again I had to order more yarn. I was showing my brother the hat I was working on for his son when he started talking about what a nice soft wool I was using and how he really likes the hat. (Translation: He wants a hat) So there I was mentally waving good by to the UFO I had pulled out. A three panel throw made from lovely Noro Cash Iroha and Silk Garden yarns that I was planning on finishing for him. Honestly all I had to do was stitch the panels together and block it, or should that… Continue

I thought it was time to put up my spinning progress. As usual it is more of a photo essay.
My DM broke her D-arm and I spent most of my "free" time taking care of and visiting her. I am very lucky I love my mother and it was a labor of love however I am sure glad she is home. Enough about me here is what… Continue

This is my first Blog entry. I will start by saying a bit about my projects as and when I can till I catch up.
I got my Elizabeth spinning wheel down from the loft in June after a 15 year break The wheel itself was broken so I reglued it which lasted for quite a while, but then I knocked it over and the actual wheel took the full force and I stuck it together with Duct Tape as a temporary measure. The wood on the wheel is very dense, so the wood glue is useless. My next plan is to try… Continue

There is a finish to our objects. Projects end, either because we throw them in the trash or because we come to some other kind of conclusion, such as a successful completion. During our quilting/knitting minigroup (aka "Common Threads"), my friend Kay finished the afghan she was making for a friend. Here is Kay (right) holding up her afghan. My friend Joanie (of the "Sheepish Ladies") is on the left. Hooray for a finished object, even if it wasn't one of mine! (I tried to get her to leave it… Continue

Alex's Gloves are finished and she's wearing them (although I modeled them in the photo...thanks for the photo, Rob!) It was a fun project, and she was able to take them with her when she left to go back to California. I really enjoyed working with the Imagination Sock Yarn. I know this yarn has taken some flack lately for not being machine-washable, but I loved working with it! (I did warn her not to put them into the washer, though.) They're also… Continue

I finally got the first sock for my DH down to the beginning of the toe! Spinning has cut into my knitting time. My spinning friend Lynda came by with her plied Coopworth yarn that she was working on when she was at my house. We're going to order eight pounds of the stuff and split it. It's so easy to work with, and it's hand-dyed in rust with flecks of other colors in it. Her finished skeins were really beautiful. The producer will have to make up some more, so we will have to wait until after… Continue

The urge to nest and spin is great today. I want to sit in my room and knit and spin while the snow fall outside.
But I can't! My dad has torn apart my room to put in heating for the upstairs floor and into my floor. I am grateful for the future heat, but I want my room back!
