This week I’m talking about the baking, knitting and general brain shift that comes with the holiday season. A book recommendation this week too. Next time I’ll have a whole list of gift ideas.
I’m also beginning to fill the fiber basket in anticipation of the spinning I’ll be doing in January.
A cozy spot for a rainy day! This week lots of creative endeavors and a trip through my history. Plus:
Knitting and spinning lace with clubs from Knitspot and A Verb for Keeping Warm (I’ll be talking about BMFA spinning by next time).
Check out the beautiful projects that Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors links to on Facebook.
I’ve been blogging about dyeing and cooking.
Listening to Grass for his Pillow on Audible while I spin. Beautifully written and read.
