I wanted to make some springtime necklaces this week. So, I gathered all my collage sheets, some stamps, glue, Exacto knife, various other doo-dads, and took them to the living room to work on in the evening.
I cut this out, I cut that out. I put this here, I put this there. I had stuff everywhere. Nothing clicked.
Tried it again the next evening.
Tried it again last night and thought, hm. And now for something completely different . . .

Anyway, I am soooo happy to list a new scarf for spring.
Yes, I am bragging.
I have the two others in a hemp bath and will be rinsing and washing them today. I'm so happy. I feel the flow of creative qi again!

I have been THRUST into the 21st century! We got it on Saturday and words cannot express how cool it is!
Meanwhile, I have been productively whipping through fingerless gloves, as seen here:
These are knit from Connecticut-grown sheep, handspun and hand-dyed by me. They are very hardy, yet soft enough for your hands. You can even feel a bit of lanolin in them. They will be going to Swift Waters later in the week. They are quick to make while I'm hanging out with Matt after dinner.

Ugh. Sorry, but that's been my state of mind this week. I thought it was because I was sick last week and I had to get back into it. but upon reading through some of the posts on Etsy, I think I am not alone. At any rate, all the bottled up ideas are slowly coming out. Instead of wallowing in it, I am just ignoring it and plodding ahead.
I'm in Connecticut, after all.

It's my Rain Tonight scarf:
Thank you, Pacifixe!
I have a little touch of spring fever. Here is my "treasury" of lovely Etsy finds:

Today my feet are comfortably nestled in my lasted handknit socks.
Handknit socks are THE best. They are extremely comfortable and they last a long time. Unless you have a sock knitting machine/device, they take a while to make. That's why I haven't tried to sell any yet. I may one day. But I just make them for myself and for my family.
I am so happy I feel better, too, because I am almost done measuring the warp for my next weaving project - belts. Or sashes. I tried to dye some hemp yarn in henna but it didn't come out very dark. I'm winding it on my nostepinne:
I'm getting hungry. I don't know what the time says under this post but it's really 11:15 a.m. I can't seem to fix the time here on my blog.

Plus, we're having a blizzard. But that doesn't bother me much, except that Matt is driving down to NJ today. I made him take a big comforter just in case he gets stuck somewhere. I wanted to throw in some granola bars but we didn't have any. Then I thought, even if we did, I'd have eaten them all.
Yesterday was my sister, Shannon's, birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHANNON!
