Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Well, I’m  a few days home from a marvelous vacation with my mom. I’ve recovered from the jet lag, almost adjusted to my seemingly invigorated allergies, and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. I’ve much to do. Kristi and I used to take a mother-daughter vacation almost every year, but since moving […]

Busy Bee!

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Casting on with my new colors + Burn Test

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Often when I run across a mystery fiber I can make a pretty good guess by touch, sight or smell, but every once in a while I’m flummoxed, and then I look up the burn test details. It won’t tell you if you’ve got BFL or Corriedale, but it can tell you whether you’re dealing […]
