Well, I was taught to spin a little every day. That’s what I try to do and most days I’m successful.
At some point I’ll need Nick to be the camera person so that this can flow more smoothly. For now, this is what I have.
I’m so excited about the way this wool is cleaning up and spinning. I’m blending lots of scrap fibre I have to add texture and colour. This is a 2 ply yarn, knitting on 5.5mm needles for #cwcfallshalwalong. I’m joining Sara and many others as we knit together – but safely apart. You can see what she’s up to here:
For me, my bread is done, the coffee hot, and the day is beautiful.
What are you working on today?
A quick walk through the garden this evening. Nick completed the new chicken enclosure. I’m so glad they have more room to wander and scratch. I wasn’t sure how it would all come together but am happy with the way it turned out – down to the door with hinges.
- green beans
We harvested the garlic already as well as the first batch of cooking onions. I also have 3 beet plants still to harvest.
So much to be thankful for.

Interested in some handspun yarn? Message me and we can talk options.
To knit some mini mittens. In order to accomplish this task I’ve set my self a challenge to knit one each day. This is not difficult to do but keeping the task in sight will ensure that I accomplish the goal. Each one completed will be filled in.
Do you have a long term task ahead of you? What would you like to complete?
Hot, hot days
One summer we picked a bushel of peas at a farm outside of Elmira then spent the afternoon shelling and getting them frozen. A quiet afternoon sitting in the shade of the carport with my 2 older girls working away. There was laughter and giggles. The others were enjoying their afternoon naps. A wonderful memory as I shall today.
Do you have a summer memory to share?

Earlier this morning the day seemed dark and gloomy so I decided to brighten up my life a bit with sunshine spinning.
I’m spinning 2 ply on a small Ashford spindle. It’s light and spins like a dream.
