Just Because

Random "I haven't finished anything but I feel like posting" post.
I've been taking a small shop update break to work on some personal projects and unwind after the hectic holiday season. Thank-you all for making my first Christmas on etsy such a wonderful experience! Also my thanks for all the wonderful comments and advice shared about my new weaving adventure. It's been fantastic and super helpful!

Flitting from project to project like a butterfly I've been working on my:
-Ingenue sweater (no recent pictures, but with only a left sleeve left to knit I'll have completed photos soon)
-Weaving sampler (having a bunch of fun, but it's feeling really long now. I can't wait to make a handspun scarf next.)
-Spinning some art yarn from raw wool and mohair fleece that I washed, dyed and drum carded together.

I was yearning for something bright after all the dreary winter days. I swear I run on sunshine most of the time.
Not to mention a healthy amount of time spent playing Lord of the Rings Online... The game is free and really fun so far. I'm a wee Hobbit Minstrel.
In slightly related news: I came to the conclusion that if I existed in the Lord of the Rings books I'd like to pretend I'd be an elf, but I know in my heart I'd be a hobbit. I love comfort, food and my simple life far too much to be anything else. Thankfully I'm not a Hobbit with the big hairy feet and all that. Yikes!

Okay that's all I've got for now. Posts about one of my favorite shops and some great projects made by others with my dyed fiber and yarn are in the works!


  1. That is some funky neat yarn!

    Also sometime I'll have to play LOTRO with you :)

  2. Well, I'm not playing LOTR but I am watching it again. Couch bound means more movies!

    Isn't it great to have so many neat toys to play with now? My wheel is getting a good work out lately. Looms? not so much....


  3. I have no clue what I'm going to do with the yarn, but it's been fun to spin!

    How are you liking the Matchless?
