A Total Score and More!
Okay, so it's a lame rhyme, but it's Pooh! I couldn't help myself.
It seems that my brother and his girlfriend have developed an unhealthy addiction to Winnie the Pooh. They've done their daughter-to-be's room entirely in Pooh motif. Rather than try to wean them off it, I've decided to help it along. I found all this great stuff at the japanese dollar store (bit of a misnomer as everything is $2.00). What a deal, can't beat it with a stick!
Yet another baby sweater. I wonder how long it'll be before I hate pink...
This is a swatch for a hat for the Nihon Vogue course. It's handspun from some sort of beast roving I picked up at the Madrona retreat this past February. Hope to have a finished pic up early next week.
A few people have asked how I like the Lady Ann and the Mongold. I do like the Lady Ann, but the cop seems to want to wind around the waist rather than higher up. This does not affect spindle use at all, just different than others and I have to get used to it. It's a very zen spindle. Calming to use. I like it, but I wouldn't do any sort of production work with it. I am brutally disappointed with the Mongold. It does not live up it's reputation. I do have another one on the way and I'll see if it's better. For now, the Forresters, Tabacheks and Bosworths are still the ones I pick up first. Though my Eichheim is quickly becoming a favorite as well.
