catching up

I am almost up to speed, caught up with most spindolyn orders, if you have one outstanding, it will be mailed for sure by wednesday, if it was not in the batch that went out on friday.
Thanks again to everyone for their understanding.
I got a note from a customer commenting that she was really enjoying her spindolyn and she hoped that I was squeezing in time to spin.
That brought tears to my eyes, as that was a very kind thing, indeed, to wish for someone time to enjoy a minute or two on something just for fun.
Back to the shop!!!
(oh, I had the greatest idea on my drive back from helping my Mom this weekend about how to solve the problem in the future design of the low rider spindolyn...can't wait to test it out!!! will keep you posted)

update on the fire

I am back from two family fires in one week (coincidental and 90 miles apart) and working like Charlie Chaplin in "Modern Times" trying to catch up with orders and obligations.
I really appreciate everyones kind words and patience.
My family is pretty much a cheerful, loving bunch, and they are handling the tragedy well, with lots of help from their church and community.

my apologies,
Catherine

springtime free chart


So I had this chart ready to post before Easter, but got busy trying to cope with the cold weather (let me tell you children, it is miserable in the shop making spindolyns because I had already taken the plastic down off of the back wall, and danged if it didn't snow(!!!) this morning!)
Anyhoo, I thought it was going to be for a sock top, but am wearing wristers alot right now for the old arthritis, and so am knitting this pattern into the wristers, instead, will post the pic when done, and hopefully have the dangling threads snipped off.
haven't gotten to that point yet, but plan on having three color on the middle rows of the chart, three color is easier for me on the machine than by hand.
