this is what knitting does for me

You might have already seen this (the knitting part is at the end) but if not, and you like miniatures and stop motion animation, and sometimes you feel like life is chasing and terrorizing you, and knitting is the comfort food of choice, then you might understand why I shared it again here.

A sorry sight














yep, those are cobwebs on my spinning wheel, and a layer of thick cabin dust that one could write letters in....sorry indeed.
First I was sick, then SAFF came and went and as of late, we have been having septic tank, toilet and plumbing problems that have taken up most of my fiber time.
The upside is that we have made sewer progress and I have made spinning progress, towards the winter knitting, if not on the wheel. I have been spinning on the spindolyn in the evenings, stretched out too tired to sit up to spin, and have some nice singles ready to ply.

born in a barn



This is where I make spindolyns and knitting tools, in the shed type barn in the foreground. Someday, it will have a floor, and insulation, and actual windows instead of plastic and be warm in the winter.....but in the meantime, need to knit me a new work sweater (in all my spare time) because it is starting to get chilly when I drilly.
