Spindleholics Anon

Hi my name is Lara and I'm addicted to drop spindles. I haven't ordered any spindles now for several days, but they keep coming in the mail. I have no hope of getting clean. Is there a Betty Ford for spindle abuse? Anyhow, here we've got a Gabe C. in aromatic cedar, a Bosworth in Kauri, and a Grafton Mala. Sadly, I've been too busy to really try them yet.

Another Nihon Vogue project done! Getting closer to the end all the time. Yup, it's crochet, but thankfully, it's only a collar rather than the skirt suit the text would have us do. Pretty sure I don't have the physique to carry off a crocheted skirt, let alone an entire suit. Bet Anthea will figure out how to comment now, if only to send me big, wet raspberries.

My Peonies have bloomed! The tree peony has two blooms this year. It's one of my all-time favorite flowers. Had to put something pretty up as tomorrow the bedroom renos start. Pray that I don't have to club the monkey on the head with a heavy object.

The Kauri is much darker than I expected, or is that because it's in the shade? I want to know if it's as great as the other Bosworths, so get on it, will ya? :-)

Purty lace!

AND I LOVE PEONIES, TOO!! It's spooky.

C'mon! If that guy in those Japanese knitting books can style the crocheted lace suit, I'm thinkin' anyone can. You'll never know until you try, right?
