What a fantastic idea! And you yarn looks great too.

After four days this week demo-ing spinning to the public at a local stately home (great fun but exhausting) I am looking forward to a bit of therapeutic spinning without answering a thousand questions at the same time :-)


Hi Heather!

I totally understand! I'm participating in a spinning demo on Sunday at the oldest and last working farm in Queens, NY. So I'm keeping my mouth shut until then!

Sahara! Great to hear from you and see the blog cooking. It's on my roll again. So much to follow here and be reminded once again what we are missing, though there are many compensations, resettled in the Northwest.

Curious to note that colored girls were invited to Kansas; that tee-shirt would get many spun heads in Portland where, at the same time, the dominant energy was quite the opposite. We know live with the dominant whiteness of America [actual statistic].

Have to show Ron your latest lovely spinning which he will admire. He still knits hats to give away, now weaving scarves. We both miss Knitty City, not replaceable, as are you. Love and peace, naomi
