The Russians are Leaving?

Tue, 26 Oct 2010 02:14:08 +0000

Mark’s been busy making Russian spindles. I’ve been busy trying to photograph them and list them for sale on etsy. I swear, he can made them faster than I can post them. Before he went on this Russian spindle jag, he was busy making top-whorl spindles, which in my opinion, are significantly easier to spin […]

Rhinebeck, Pens, and Woodstoves

Sat, 16 Oct 2010 01:52:23 +0000

Last year was the first year I’d taken a class at the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. Taking the class last year really made the whole Rhinebeck experience so much more than yarn shopping mayhem. It gave me the chance to connect with people who are as fiber obsessed as I am. As I started […]

Making the most of Freedom

Fri, 17 Sep 2010 17:38:24 +0000

Do you remember when, in 2001, Oprah Winfrey chose Jonathan Franzen’s book, The Corrections, and then changed her mind? It wasn’t until then that I decided to read the book.  I was so glad that I did because I love this book. Yes, passages made me uncomfortable, but real life can be like that for […]

Words fail me

So I’ll a few pictures do the trick. I can’t type and spin so you can blame Jenkins Woodworking for the lack of blogging. That’s an 8gm Jenkins Holly Kuchulu and a 14gm Jenkins Big Leaf Maple Lark. This is a Jenkins Standard Turkish spindle in Purpleheart. It weighs a wopping 58gms. Here’s what can […]

Resource Management

Fri, 03 Sep 2010 17:22:19 +0000

Things have been stressful here in NM, CT lately.  With everyone heading back to school, it’s transformed our generally chaotic pediatrician’s office into a flurry of school forms and freshly immunized children.  All of that excitement is bound to spill over into the rest of life. Our friend Stephen brought over the board game Attack! […]

Bridgewater Fair

Mon, 23 Aug 2010 11:41:22 +0000

This year I submitted four items, a sweater, a holiday stocking, a lace shawl, and a hat. The sweater and the hat won second place ribbons. The shawl and the stocking won first place ribbons. As ever, my aversion to crowds dissuaded me from checking out my competition. Although while I was waiting in line […]

All that and a box of flakes

Sun, 22 Aug 2010 19:34:58 +0000

I told M I wanted a couple different spindles. He’s made me several drop spindles, all with slight variations, to see which ones I liked for different reasons. He kept making them lighter and lighter because I’ve been on a lace knitting jag and I thought it would be nice to have a really light […]

Getting Ready for the Bridgewater Fair

Fri, 13 Aug 2010 17:39:29 +0000

Haruni, pattern by Emily Ross, is finished. I knitted it using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (3.625 skeins) and size US 4 needles. I had purchased 4 skeins of the Silky Wool when we went to Newport, RI a couple weeks ago. I thought that I would make a summer tank top or something. I knew […]
