green finger, blue toe

 Well I'm off, (more ways than one) to the sheep and wool festival.  Sorry Molly no room for you although you do fit in under the fiber category.   The "lockness" skein on the back was just spun yesterday and is still wet enough that I may hang it out the sunroof on the way there.  [...]

Since moving out of the studio space that a group of us has shared, I have been setting up 2 of my looms at home and trying to organize all that fiber in a much smaller space. My 54" Glimakra will be in storage but just about everything else is stuffed into a few areas [...]
