I suppose I have been away from the blog for too long – Typepad asked for my password! No real reason for the lack of blogging – life and lack of bloggy energy got in the way.
I do have a treat though! But first a small story …….
You know I love my spinning guild. I look forward to each newsletter, each meeting. And every month, I have to dust off my wheel to take it along! shame on me My free time is spent with my knitting needles and rarely if ever with the Lendrum. Do you know the guilt we all seem to have over all the yarn in our stash? Well multiply that by three for how I feel about my fiber stash. At least with the yarn, I am knitting. Some of my fiber is an appropriate age to send it on the school bus for its first day of elementary school! At our last spinning guild meeting I thought to myself, “Why don’t I do this more often?” This thought happens at every single meeting. And then I come home from the meeting, unpack the wheel and there it sits motionless until the next month. tsk tsk
Well, August was the month for change. Since the last guild, I have spun everyday. My wheel is kept in our basement (which is a very nice basement, all bright and finished). I am down there every morning to feed the dogs and start the laundry and this month after doing both of those things, I sat myself down for a bit of spinning. Many of my Ipod programs are podcasts and more often than not, these run about 20 minutes. So I would select something interesting and spin. and here are the results …..
This is a merino/silk blend. I bought it at Rhinebeck last year from a Abi’s Web. They are from Hinsdale, MA. I have about 300 yds. and need to find a project! I shall be cruising around Ravelry to see what’s out there. By the way, I want to mention that Ravelry will be where to find any of my holiday knitting which should be starting this week. After the holidays, I will post those projects over here.
