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--41 repeats and doing the decrease rows.

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

Dizzy Blondes: 

The third (!) 8 ounces of Shetland wool from RenCon Ranch.

I finished the Freckle Face Fibers merino-silk I was spinning on Peregrine the Sidekick!

...But I also finished 10 oz of emerald green merino and 4 oz of a merino-silk blend on Fiona the Ashford! My warm thanks to Dizzy Ruth of the Dizzy Ewe for helping me purchase and to Michelle Lee  of Studio 66 for teaching me how to use the new Ashford!


Change your mind. No, really. You MUST change your thoughts to change your feelings.

Put a Lid On It:

I canned the pickled aubergine (eggplant) at last! 2 pints! And 5 pints of dilled sandwich slices (cukes) for good measure, using Persian cucumbers.

Aw Shoot!
I am up to running 1.5 miles. Now if only I could get back to the archery range...!

There is now a thread on the Ravelry group to discuss your current exercise of any form.

Something I Really Like:

The Woolee Winder for spinning.
The Griffin Dye Works Autumnal Fiber Frolic in Monrovia, CA
The Dizzy Ewe


CFR5 is fast approaching. Meanwhile, a review of Cooperative Press' new book Stitching in the Stacks.
