Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Oh, you're tempting me with that Stony Mountain Fiber merino... I want to finish a small project with some wool/angora/silk first before I start a new spinning project... But maybe just a touch of that on a spindle wouldn't be cheating???

Of course I've got that cashmere for my big summer project...

Of Course it's not cheating. Why - everyone knows I'm knitting the Sigvaldi sweater from The Best of Lopi and have a casmerino aran sweater waiting to be worked on next.

A little drop spindle spinning is just, you know, a warm up exercise.

In the midst of sweet Sundays.
Half way through this gentle time I am sleeping most of the hours away. 9 hours last night - a nap yesterday afternoon - I plan to indulge again today. There is almost nothing to report beyond the joy of swaying days of soft breezes kissing your arms. BD finished the bedroom screens and we can open the windows at night. He also fixed the ripped screen on the porch door, after 30 minutes of cynical grumbling about the tawdry way people manufacture things these days and how (in the halcyon days) Aunt Mimi had copper screens and they never ripped no matter how often their dog Jeb scratched on them.

I got only spindle spinning done yesterday, with the pale soft purple merino top I bought at Stony Mt. Fibers last weekend. I think I shall spin the entire lot with the Kundert spindle. I intend to spin more Liberty Ridge Farm colors today. But that’s all I intend to do - besides napping and taking Capt. Jack and the aunts on a walk.

Half a do-nothing day equals all the pleasure I want.
