I know I’m a day late blogging. In fact I may end up not writing too much this week. I was traveling yesterday. I am now writing to you from PA. My grandfather is very ill and my mother needed me here. So after 10 hours of driving here I am. I went to go […]

I can scarce believe it’s already this time of year. This year has gone so fast. I’m doing very little Christmas knitting or crochet this year. The exception to this rule is my mother, she specifically asked for a hooded scarf and who am I to deny her this? So I sat down yesterday after […]

I got my hands on some of this lovely fiber. It feels quite soft with a bit of crispness to it.   This fiber dyes beautifully. I used cushings acid dyes in silver grey green. I have noticed that this color is mottled whenever I use it but I like the way it separates.   […]

I have something of importance, I would like to share with everyone. I was contacted by a local pet shelter in Los Angeles with a pygora goat.  I would love to take him however the cost of shipping him here is not within my budget. So If anyone knows of a fiber farm that takes […]

The bunnies have needed a little extra attention(mean 3 hours in the barn grooming). I decided after I was done instead of writing my post then I needed to make a […]

I really didn’t want to dye the camel fiber as I really like the natural color of it. I did spin it up a sample for your viewing pleasure.     I’m almost finished with my beautifully soft cashmere blend cowl. I think one more repeat of the pattern will do it. I think there will be […]

Happy Veterans Day and Bless All You Veterans for choosing to give of yourself to keep us Free! A couple pics of my favorite soldier from when he was in Afghanistan.   Afghanistan is a desolate but beautiful place.  Many  of the soldiers show they have big hearts by  sheltering abandoned animals. This is Terminator he […]

I had to make a few changes to the website. As I was doing this I hit with a terrible head cold and abcessed tooth. Needless to say, I was down for the count for about a week. I’ve also decided to go with a biweekly newsletter as well. It would be easier as I […]
