Driving in the rain both going and coming. I think only 20 minutes of a 6 hour drive was sans rain! But the reason for all the driving was to pick up a repaired great wheel from Mr Amazing Repair Man! I was hoping it would be fixed in time ... Read more

I was going to show you photos of my fair entries but because of spending part of the day at the loom house I am showing something different. The next thing on the big loom is a baby blanket. 41.8" wide because I could-I thought (more later... Read more

A new band was needed on the band loom. I have an over-engineered project bag. It does all that I want (hold an entire sweater project - yarn and knitted parts and stands up) except that I made the drawstring too narrow. I hear threads snapping ... Read more

Being a minion my time is not always my own to roam around but I did get a couple of animal shots. The Pygora goat classes were right outside our building. When we passed early one morning there were only two goats in the pen but when I was back... Read more

That was what I was thinking as I started knitting the first line of pattern in my twisted stitch cowl. I took a class at my last conference, just to be sure I really understood. I did. But the class was badly taught. She picked a pattern that w... Read more
