I'm so late getting on the blog band wagon that it's ridiculous. It's not for want of willingness, but for want of time. I had to do it now, or never.
It's a busy time for me with high school search for my son, finalizing a home purchase, starting a second career in addition to the first, and dealing with everything else in life. Talk about pressure and stress! Whew! I have to keep sane somehow. So what do I do? I knit and I spin, I think about knitting and spinning, I dream about knitting and spinning, and I even read a good book every now and then.
Here's what I've been working on lately.
Colonial wool from Coppermoose on a spindle from Spindlez on Ebay.
Camel/tussh silk blend that I got at a fiber swap at Spincity meetup group meeting. It's being spun on a tiny stone drop spindle made by my friend Marion at http://knittingspinningsewingcrocheting.blogspot.com
Wool fingerless mitts for my Son.
Border Leicester/Suffolk/Romney Lamb fleece on spindles by Marion.
Angora fiber (batt) from Silkmothspinneryon Ebay. Luscious!
