Spinsters Club!

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Drove out to Wamego yesterday for my first Spinsters Club–and my first spinning–in forever. I’m pretty sure my last spinning was when I started spinning Gringo’s fur, over a year ago. It was such a drag that it turned me off spinning completely. It’s still a huge drag–I truly can not think of anything I’d […]

Tap, tap, tap

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

What’s that sound? That’s me, nailing down my Überlist for 2014! 2013 was pretty meh, list-wise. I banged out 38, solid Kelly territory (to my great shame). I think the first 3 months of the baby gave me a misleading idea of the kind of time I’d be working with. I did almost no knitting […]

Rigid Heddle Love

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

Well, I’m getting a late start on NaKniSweMo, but I’m bound and determined to get at least one sweater done, and maybe 2. My plan is to make matching-ish cardigans for me and Pearly. I’m using this, a Tour de Fleece handspun from a couple years back. It’s actually not my favorite yarn ever, a […]

Winnowing

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

[This is a post from last summer that I just realized I didn't publish....] I’ve been sort of turning the big blob of my life over and over again  in my mind, trying to work it into a nice bouncy dough, though it’s really more like a Katamari Damacy ball. While on vacation, I had […]

First things first! I’ve got a signing for Literary Knits at the Topeka Barnes & Noble on February 23rd (Saturday) at 2pm. Come out!  Come out! I’m going to see if I can set up to do some kind of cool little demo, maybe thrums? I’m trying to come to terms with having absolutely no […]

Woolpacalypse! (Winter Woolfest in Wamego!)

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Holy cow! Two weeks into the new year and I already don’t know my ass from my elbow (wait, is my elbow the big doughy thing?)! I’ve been running around like a lunatic, but of course I have found time to obsessively compile my new Überlist. Tomorrow is Winter Woolfest! Come see me! I’ll be […]

A late introduction: Twyla Pearl

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

I’ve been very absent from my old friend The Thrifty Knitter. My crazy year is finally winding down. This year, I survived a tornado, finished a book, grew and expelled a human person, and hosted Yarn School, Fiber School & Mitten School! Whew! The Tiny Boss (Twyla Pearl, born 9/13/12): If you’re a baby person, […]
