Stash Busting

Let me go ahead and admit I have somewhat of an issue. When it comes to spinning fiber, I have no monetary control. I can’t give my money away fast enough. The highlight of my day is often finding a big, squishy envelope in my mail box. Those packages fill my heart with fibery warmth […]

Well Hello

Yes, I do manage to finish a big project every now and then. These little fingerless gloves might look small, but this was a very big project for me. I picked out roving from my stash, spun it up specifically with these in mind, set the yarn, waited for it to dry, waited some more, […]

A Finished Object

Remember that yarn I gushed over a while back (see here if you don’t), well, I finally found a project worthy of this yarn. I looked and looked for something I’d wear… a lot. I love hats, but don’t often wear them as I find myself trying to keep my hair looking nice for work. […]

Lots to say, lots to say.

I didn’t mean to go away for an entire week! I blame the sick I somehow contracted last Sunday/Monday that knocked me down and drug me through the mud for 4 days. I think my defenses were still on vacation from my mini cold I had a couple of weeks ago because I sat at […]

Dear Life, Just in case you think you distracted me with thoughts of gardening and trips to Minneapolis for my brother’s Law School graduation, think again. I remembered last night that it wasn’t too long ago that I used to spin at least every other day. You almost got me this time, Life, but I […]

A Challenge

I have enjoyed spinning since December of 2007 when my mom gave me a drop spindle for Christmas. If you have followed my blog, then you know I purchased my spinning wheel this past fall. I have spun, spun, and spun some more ever since. I’ve tried to fill my shop and my Holiday craft […]

What weekend plans?

I’m afraid my weekend is shot. There is so much I wanted to do – spin some yarn, dye some yarn, go find some new jeans to take to Austin, but it looks like I’ll be at work for the majority of today. I’ll have some breaks here and there, but they won’t be long […]

Just For You

psst… I made you all a little something this week – well, a few little somethings. I think they turned out nicely… don’t you? It’s been a chilly weekend and is currently snowing just a slight, little tiny bit outside of my window so the warm, snuggly yarn seemed appropriate. Make sure to come by […]
