Not knitting

The Kauni is sitting there – just looking at me.

The weather is decent, and I have no interest in knitting. Spinning, on the other hand. I can take a spinning wheel out for a whirl.

I have a lot of options on wool. Less now that before 2003-4 when the m*ths got into my stash, but still.

Now to just pick which wheel (like that takes any brains since I have the new one).

I have shown you pictures before – but here it is again!


Please excuse the mess – it is not only my studio that needs a bit of organization. The mother-of-all on this Norwegian style wheel is wonderful and I am having a great time with rainbow.

Books<>Should I admit that I am reading through junk and trash? Between spinning in the sun, and reading in the sun, I had a lovely day.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
