Hello. I'm Baron. I probably weigh more than most of Gemma's audience...Please make the Collie stop picking on me!

What's On My Hooks, Needles, and Spindles:

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller . Bit me. Dammit!


Whacky Socks
I'm so confused....

One Row Lace Scarf...It goes like this:

K4 [YO, K2Tog, K2] to your preferred width. Go up 3 needle sizes from the standard size for your yarn weight, so I am using a US 5 for lace weight yarn.

Still in Progress:

Bears for the Mother Bear Project--my 13 bears in 2013 project continues with Bears 30-32.

Dizzy Blondes:


I continue spinning the 12 oz of the fiber dyed for the last CFR by Desert Vista Dyeworks on my Sidekick, Perry:

And I am finishing the singles started from a cinnamon alpaca whose fleece I was selling at CFR2012:

No real developments in spinning since the last episode

Keep the larger perspective as you watch someone you love making mistakes. They really probably will figure it out and do the right thing, if you give them time.

Put a Lid On It:
Recipe: 1 cup homemade yogurt or Greek yogurt from store, handful of Uncle Sam cereal or your own granola of choice, 1 Tblspn of your homemade canned jam or fresh fruit in water. Faboo breakfast!

Aw Shoot!
Archery dating, JOAD to get the kiddies started with a bow. My bow of choice: 62 inch recurve with 20 pound draw weight. Anyone can do archery!

Something I Really Like:
Seeing the great spaces of the United States as a way to understand Americans.


CFR news, as always. Enter the Peahen. Retirement, walking the dawgs, pattern designing and wheelwrighting as alternative fiber crafts.
Stitching in the Stacks and a general appreciation of Cooperative Press.
Swagger--a pattern by Twinset Jan.

Prizes, yeah we got those...


All sorts....
