I'd like to be....

under the sea:

We've been so busy the hands are faster than the camera:

marin condo

shetland yarn
a bobbin a day, that's all we ask.

and some African silk:

This stuff is marvelous to work with: I spun this last night at our local guild meeting. Our speaker was Ginger Luters, who is also a member of the guild. She talked to us about Tunisian Crochet, which is apparently not Tunisian but is a form of crochet. She showed us interesting openwork and modular work, lots of inspiration.

I spun through the lecture. I was given this African silk at a workshop, but I am not sure I can remember from whom.....! If you know anything about this baggie:

can you email me please (lambspin at g mail dot com....remove all spaces etc.)? Meanwhile, I've sent an inquiry to the person I think brought it to me.

Anyway, it's wonderful to spin, drafts like a champ, and very little in the way of chaff, fluff, noils, short bits. Thank you!! to whomever....

Lots of fun stuff happening, people busy either building or making, a bit on the frenetic side around here, but that's better than being dull, I suppose. I have neglected the blog, sadly, despite having thought of lots of things to tell you: I had a whole post about the lunar eclipse last month, quite beautiful, joined by two shooting stars as I sat and watched....I just hope you are psychic, or telepathic, or something because I'm off and away! again. Back soon.

There is a warm bright sun out there, and the studio awaits.

Busy is good. And I can hope for a bobbin a day, but it ends up being more like 2 or 3 ounces a week, finished, which I suppose is pretty good. I haven't a clue on the silk, though.

You were right. At the VC retreat about five years ago you told Lindsey and me that our spinning style couldn't be sustained and you tried to show us your way. It's hard and we quit. Now I have repetitive motion injury and am trying to recall what you taught us. I'm a beginner, very uncomfortable.
