The Librarian


Making yarn directly from the source. Oddly, despite all my love of playing around with fibres, I've never been bitten by the spinning bug ... yet. ;p (P.S. Despite the video name, that is NOT a bunny ... it's a full-grown rabbit. Bunny is, like kitten or puppy or foal or piglet, a word specifically meaning the infant version)


Knitting progress ...

So nice to be back at the needles for a decent block of time again. My Grand Teton was the lucky project grabbed off the things-I'm-working-on pile ... have now finished the plainer main part and am four rows into the fancy edging. :-)


Also got a few rounds done on socks I started ages ago on the way to, during (except for when the hair colour was being applied ... wool being hair, any that hit my knitting would have sucked that stuff up permanently) , and home from the hairdresser on Thursday. The new Heavy Metal needles definitely DO make a difference.
