I love how it turned out after the bath. You would not believe how soft it is!
The 2013 Tour de Fleece is underway! I finished the Salt Water Taffy v.2 yarn this past week, and last night I skeined it for its bath this morning. It looks just as fun as the first skein I did, and I might make a hat and mittens out of it for a colorful winter.Continue reading “It Has Begun”
Sorry I suck at keeping my blog updated. It hasn’t been for lack of material – I’ve been quite busy creating things. Indeed, I have a massive case of “startitis”…that condition that causes us to start a million projects and then hopelessly try to keep up.

I made 2 prayer shawls. They look very similar, don’t they? That’s because they’re for a very dear family friend whose firstContinue reading “Still the worst blogger ever, now with photos!”
We had a nice and quiet Halloween. Usually, we host a party, but this year we took it easy, due to Halloween being surrounded by both of our 40th birthdays. We figured having 3 parties in a month was a bit overkill. The night before Halloween, Fred and I carved our pumpkin. This small butContinue reading “Halloween Was Fantastic!”
When I learned to spin about 2.5 years ago, I learned on a drop spindle, and I was utterly hooked. Six months later, I took a class with the same teacher, Carol (who is full of awesome, I might add), on a double treadle Ashford Traveller, and loved it. I was intimidated by the costContinue reading “New Spinning Wheel!”
