Back In Gear

It’s mostly cloudy and windy today but the sun manages to peek out on occasion. I’m back in the studio getting a little spinning done and getting ready to begin photographing and inventory of my hand-spun yarns. I’m starting with the best stuff and will move onto the rest later.

The empty space on the shelf above the books is where the ‘good stuff’ is kept, mostly Allons-Y! and other Indie dyed fibers. The top shelf is mostly natural colored fibers.

Finally finished that 1/2 ounce of fiber I was working on and started the next 1/2 ounce. My ankle needs a rest so I’m headed to the living room to kick back in the recliner for a bit and do some knitting. I’ll be back later to start getting photos of yarn.

Brad had errands to run and brought us Chick fil A for lunch. I ate too much and now I’m a bit sleepy. I’ll find something on streaming video to watch while I knit. Have a blessed Monday afternoon, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
