Some say…

Some say that the difference between and rut and a grave is the depth. I heard this at work earlier this week and maybe I’m just not grasping it, but I’m left with a huge, cartoon question mark over my head when I think on this. Is saying that a rut is basically a grave […]

While watching some football this evening, I decided to work on predrafting some wool. Well, actually not having to predraft as much as I do to spin. I worked on a lovely skein today (spun from a couple of Hobbledehoy batts), seen here, and while I’m completely in love with it (my best thus far) […]
