More green stuff
Have now run out of two of the greens, poking around found a small amount of green kid mohair, fits nicely in the mix, then found a merino-mohair blend that might work. Its actually a blend of maybe 5 or 6 colors, will give it a try and see if my hands can ...

Home again
Came down my driveway yesterday just after 12:30 with Dorian aboard to unload car. He had everything in the house in about 10 minutes, then we loaded a big bag to go up to the dump, then dropped him home on the way by, I was happy and he was too $20 richer....

Small wonder
I can't find any 2.5 mm 16 inch circular needles, they are all busy. Guess the socks crept up and grabbed my needles when I wasn't looking. Have 4 pair (whoops) on the go at present time, (have no idea how that happened). Will take the two blue-y pairs with...

Socks and Needles
Picked up a weeks worth of mail yesterday and was pleased to find the needles I had ordered from Knit Picks, 5 inch Harmony and 6 inch nickel plated, and in a case where I will keep needles when not in use. Finished the blue-green Monstersocks last night wh...

1st bobbin finished
Finished bobbin #1 of the various greens in a marathon session this morning, had only planned on 30 minutes or so but as I got closer to the finish line just kept spinning, ended up with almost 90 minutes at the wheel. Am sure I'll pay with my right leg lat...

Green stuff
Gathered up 5 various greens (mostly my favorite color), then separated each of the colors into 12-15 inch pieces, started spinning and so far I like what I'm getting. Have enuff of the 5 colors to fill at least 2 bobbins, anything I run out of will just st...

Dislike
For me the most disliked part of spinning my own yarn is plying, the way I spin plying is most needed and the reason I put it off for so long. Right now I want Woolee Winder bobbins to take with me to town for Wms Lakes spinning do on May 2nd, so hit the el...

Spinning
Got in a bit over 45 minutes this morning at the spinning wheel, still working on the merino-nylon mix from Smith & Ewe in Kamloops. Have a small piece missing from the largest whorl on one of my Woolee Winder bobbins (all the rest are full) so am having to...

Spring DM ran Thursday afternoon until after lunch on Sunday, then everyone loads up all their goodies and heads out. Smaller than normal crowd for spring but ever so enjoyable, can actually visit with people this way instead of just seeing the person sitti...
