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

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller .
On to the second color!

Margaret Dashwood Shawl--15 repeats done, but set aside for bears...

Whacky Socks

One Row Lace Scarf...set aside for the nonce...

2 more bears have been freed from the ZomBear curse! Here are Christine and Sandy Bear!


Bears for the Mother Bear Project--my 13 bears in 2013 project continues. I am back on this project, as the 2 Knit Lit Chicks are still running their CAL/KAL!

Dizzy Blondes: 

Loretta and her fantastic Kiwi wheel:


The finished BFL-silk from Dreamy Goat Designs.


A Happy Outcome from having a skeiner and being able to skein up and count your yarn more quickly.


And here's what you get from being able to load little cheap bobbins and free up your wheel's bobbins. I used a drill and the dowel from my Lazy Kate.


The first 4 ounces of Shetland wool from RenCon Ranch.


Freckle Face Fiber SWM in California Poppies.




The last braid of Judy's Novelty Wool Corriedale from Stitches West several years ago.



Set yourself free from wanting a past that will never be.

21 -Day Meditation Challenge

Oh No! The ZomBears have overpowered their watchdog! Poor Eleanor!


Put a Lid On It:
Hot kitchen, no goodies.

Aw Shoot!
Not this week, alas! Spinning with Loretta instead.

The Zombears did leave a slimy trail, so we cornered them in my studio...


Something I Really Like:
 Star Trek: Enterprise on Netflix. All the goofy Star Trek stuff you love, plus a great theme song and some true-to-Roddenberry themes.

The Gathering Leaves Crocheted Shawl by Lily Go. Thanks, Nitiram!

The practice of no escape!
The Mobile Recording Studio gets an overhaul.

Our outdoor bedroom for the summer months.


Oh NO! They're eating brains in my studio!
