I live.

This is my yarn and fiber blog, I really need to be more diligent about updating it! I’ve gotten so used to writing my day to day thoughts just for myself so I apologize for the extreme amounts of neglect over here for those who are still reading!

In the last year I’ve gone from learning how to spin on a drop spindle (kind of, more on that later) to buying my own wheel, dyeing and processing my own fleece, buying a drum carder and taking my Etsy store in different directions with some art yarn. Definitely not where I ever expected to be, that’s for sure!

Next week I will be taking a vacation for the first time in years, I’m going to visit my best friend Jen in Maine. While we are there we’ll be attending the Maine Fiber Frolic, I cannot wait! We signed up for two courses, on in natural plant dyeing and one six hour course to learn how to spin correctly with drop spindles. Yes, finally I will learn it the right way! Six hours, I’d better learn something!

I’ve been saving all my Etsy money to put towards purchases at the Fiber Frolic. Plus, while I’m there Jen is going to open up her barn and we’re going to spend many afternoons dyeing yarn, roving and fleece. To be honest, I can’t think of a better way to spend some time off.

So that’s where I’m at, sorry again for being so darn neglectful. My Flickr badge over thataway--> should give you a fairly accurate portrayal of what I’ve been up to fiber wise these past few months.

As always, I maintain hobbies are the best way to stay sane and are way cheaper (I think) than therapy!
