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

Mother Bear Project--the website, for info on making bears.


Various socks. Of interest: The repaired ones, after the Invasion of the Sock-Nibbling Vermin Mice!


In Progress:

Gray Dawn--another Collie scarf for the Terhune Sunnybank memorial

The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller. No, I have neither finished not forgotten this one...

Or this one:

Eleanor Scarf--spun from Eleanor's undercoat and knitted in my favored checkerboard pattern.

Dizzy Blondes: 
 I now weave on the smallest of the Schacht Looms. All handspun so far.


If you MUST demand change from people, do it with a slow plan. Give them time to cope with changes, help them mourn the perceived losses, and wait for the moment when they see the improvement.
