Can’t remember when

I last posted or knit. But I have been spinning some every day, and taking long walks in the rain, when I am not moving pans and buckets around in the spindle shop to catch the roof leaks as I work. There is a wet weather creek that runs right beside the shop, and so all of this months spindles were made to the accompaniment of cascading water, rushing and gurgling.

The rain rain rain came down down down
In rushing, rising riv'lets,
'Til the river crept out of it's bed
And crept right into Piglet's!

-The Sherman Brothers for Disney Pooh film

And no, I did not get washed away, but thanks y’all for asking.

  I have been in a sort of quiet and dark place, waiting for the sun. The garden would be doing good if the rabbits weren’t eating it, and after the drought years am most appreciative for the rain.

I have been working on a couple of new spindle designs (interchangeable with the current models) and tinkering with a plying device.

This one might be a trick to identify, you most likely notice it in the fall, not usually now.
