Finally got a new post up here!

It's been a short summer with very few dye days, but lots of spinning and knitting. I've been working alot of hours again, so not much time to post , but alas here is a few pictures of what I've been doing....

Sunday, March 15, 2009


I got really spoiled in Mexico and want to see more of that warm weather. I had a great time walking barefoot, in shorts, and swimsuit etc.. and not a pile of clothing. I want to sit on my deck and spin in the soft breeze and the sunshine- maybe today. It's supposed to be around 50 today so I might just do that.

I've been the "mudder" on the walls in the basement and now the painting is finally all done too.

Going to start the rock on the fireplace and the tung and groove on the walls. Should be great. I want it done for when my mom comes to visit in June.

Working in the studio again today as I'm really behind on my dyeing. I have two classes in May at the Lake Elmo MN show that I'm teaching and I want to show some extra examples.

Still knitting baby things, but spinning more now as my back is sore from painting and the flat bed machine hurts my back after an hour or so. My sweetie girl turns 25 this month so I want to do something fun for her, need to get some ideas.

Handknit/spun/dyed hats galore!

Been working on hats again. I get stuck on a project and work on it till I have a zillion done then go on to the next thing! Here is a peek of what I did.

Copper colored spinning fiber trial

One of my groups on Rav was talking about making or mixing up a copper color. I was experimenting last weekend in the dye studio and came up with a great mix. I used orange and navy. Love it! Will do more after I get this knit up.
