I've enjoyed all your knitting posts, but now, I've developed the "spin itch." Heh, "spinach" Filled up a drop spindle twice and I was hooked, have a wheel on its way. Now, I'm enjoying your posts and information so much more. Thanks for all you do.


Love the Tour 2-ply, looks so soft and squishy!


Colour me green with envy ...love the spinning shots, and I'm waiting oh so patiently for my one and only pond lily to open it's bloom. I agree with Petunia (above comment) I've got the spinach as well!


I hate the doldrums. I sail into them far too often. I hope you can get out soon and easily.


well i think your spinning look FABtastic!! yum,yum, thanks for saying hi to me on Flickr :)


I think you should cast on for a new project. That always helps me. ;o)


Your post puts me in mind of a (sometimes) inspiring fortune cookie fortune I carry in my wallet: Begin, the rest is easy.

I love your waterlilies too!


I've been in that position many a time. I usually start a quickie project, most often a plain sock.

The water lilies are lovely. They are like sunny side up eggs. :-)


Did you notice that the yarn you are spinning is the same colors of the water lilies?


ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.
