My Precious

My sincerest apologies to LOTR for the Photoshopping; by all accounts, this is exactly how I look in the yarn store. ;P

I'm even dreaming about the fiber arts now. Last night, it was a man in a black hat, needle felting in the road. That's what I get for knitting and attempting to learn drop-spindle spinning at 2AM. Gah!
The current project is charm bags. The silk cabled Tarot bag didn't turn out as expected, and another cabled strip is going to have to be added in order to center it properly. Kind of depressing, so it's going to sleep for a bit. Don't want to waste a solid weeks worth of work. Damn #3 needles.

I remembered that I gave my spinning gear the one of the S&Bers in Virginia before I left. There's a yarn store in Black Forest that may be able to show you some of the finer points of spinning. Maybe one of these weekends we can drive up there and make a day of it.

Sounds good :D there was a Youtube tutorial on making a drop spindle from hardware store supplies; a dowel, a drawer knob, and something else (memory is a bit fuzzy now, lol) but the weight was a bit off and needed compensating.

Just wanted to tell you my boys love the photoshopped picture. :)
