So I’ve been spinning while watching baseball lately, mostly on the weekends, as weeknights it’s generally when we eat dinner, but still, spinning! I’ve cleaned a few things off my bobbins by finishing up 2 spinning projects that have been going off an on for a few years now. If you’re like me, you’re mostly […]

Online Sheep and Wool.

This year MSW hit the same time it always does… the first full weekend in May. The problem with that of course, was I was still pretty tired from the tonsil surgery, and we had Senators/Baysox games Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and I knew I would not be up to all 3 games and MSW. […]

Another year, another Maryland Sheep and Wool. I picked up all the fiber below as well as two bobbins for my Wooly Winder. The stuff on the right is heaven. Naturally Chocolate colored Alpaca and Silk (70/30) and it’s heaven to touch and spin. I had some gray two years ago, and last year she […]

So last month was MSW, and I bought some stuff. Not a TON of stuff, but certainly enough when combined with what I already had that I am really quite good for a while. Right now I am spinning on the lovely gradient blended batts I got from Caroline’s Etsy shop. But I’ve decide not […]

Ok, as mentioned in my Thanksgiving Recipe post, I’ve had a perfectly good reason for not posting the majority of this year. I needed to move web-servers. We kept saying we were going to do it soon and then not doing it, and because it was going to happen “SOON” I didn’t want to add […]

So, April is almost over, so I figured I should post. I’ve spun a little. I’ve knit a little. I’ve grown seeds into seedlings and then had the birds eat them after I put them in their permanent pots and decided that I wasn’t going to have bird feeders on the porch anymore during spring […]

First, the spinning photo I am overdue for. 4836|500 From left to right… 4oz Sakina Needles BFL, A batt I got from Caroline(WoolForBrains)’s Etsy shop, 4oz Cloverleaf Farms Merino/Silk 80/20 I got at MDSW 3 years ago. (It has a bright pink and purple hank of yarn waiting to do colorwork with it once I […]

So while not posting, I have been knitting. I finally finished up Flore, in the Red Pepper colorway. 4830|400 It’s a fiddly knit. Not overly taxing, but fiddly in the doing and fiddly in the finishing. It is very cute however, and something I’ve wanted to knit since before I knew how to knit at […]

Ok so I ordered a new charger and new batteries from Amazon and they finally arrived. Here are the pictures from last week. I apologize in advance for not matching the creativeness of your imaginations! If the images appear blurry in the post that’s my fault btw… the watermarking thing screws with them, I have […]

I bought some glitz. A rather lot of it. I have this nice really black Alpaca see… and it’s been in my fiber stash for over a year…. waiting on me to spin it… and when I got the carder, it occurred to me to use what I just learned in the Camp Pluckyfluff class […]
