oh my gosh. I just had to comment about the biodiesel stuff. my fiance a few months back got very into the idea of biodiesel and started looking into cars he could purchase that he could run on biodiesel! unfortunately, we are in SoCal right now but hope to one day move back up to the bay. thanks for the links! :) btw, the wool looks great..can't wait to see how it all knits up.


I love your Banana Leaf socks? Will you be sharing the pattern? Great tutorial, thank you for taking the time!


It is so funny you should post today because I have a gazillion blogs to read and I was thinking, "Who was it again who had those awesome tutorials? I wonder if she has posted lately." As soon as I saw your blog title in bold, I remembered it was you. (And the "17 unread posts" after it didn't seem right to me, and wasn't. Ah, Bloglines.)

Love your roving.


So glad to hear from you and know that you are okay. The yarn is gorgeous!



Very interesting, re:biodiesel. Husband was offered a job in CA. to create an "alternative source" for golf carts ;-)

The dyeing looks gorgeous and the dogs, adorable!

welcome back! I've missed hearing from you. Lovely rovings....


What beautiful yarns and roving!

But it was the BTs that caught my eye particularly. I know I am biased, also having one in the family, but they are just so darned cute - especially when sleeping!


So nice to see you posted! I've been missing all your wonderful projects. You're such an inspiration. :-)

Thanks for the doggie pics too. They sure are awfully cute babies!

Hope you're off to the start of a wonderfully healthy and happy New Year!


That biodiesel stuff is pretty wild. I didn't know you could homebrew it! Around these parts (Minnesota) ethanol is a big deal, but there are debates as to whether or not it's any better for the environment simply because of all it takes to refine it. It may not be better in that way, but at least it's renewable! :)

Your dogs are abso-freaking-lutely adorable.
