Passing On…

Published by under Life,Spinning

I’m pretty pleased with this stuff! It’s a 2-ply merino in a medium blue with some purple and pale gold heathered throughout. I picked it up at The Fold some time ago, while Toni (the proprietor & wise woman of fiber) was hosting a fiber-related estate sale for an area spinner who had died.

I should note, too, that my loom here at home was also passed on to me from someone who was in the process of passing on — hi Phyllis, wherever you are! — and I can’t think of a better way for one’s materials to be given another life than to be given/sold to another artist/crafter. In fact, my niddy-noddy also came from the estate sale at the Fold…and was part of spinning this yarn.

Owe You A Post

Published by under Life

Dear Blog,

I have been neglectful and poorly behaved. My life has been very strange for a couple of months now, and although it’s in the process of sorting itself out, posting has been low on my list of priorities. In the near future, I plan to correct this with an inundation of posting — you wouldn’t believe how my tomato plants have become jungle vines, and I’ve knitting and spinning to share.

Once the crazy subsides, I’ll have more for you. Really. I will!
