Friday Fluff


How's that for fluff? I actually got out the drum carder the other night and cranked out some purple California Red. If I am going to spin a rainbow I needed some purple. 

The Mardi Gras and Emerald Isle fluff is still being spun while I watch TV. I had to spin my way through Game of Thrones and now I'm spinning my way through House of Dragons. It helps me handle the ick factor. Like the stories. Hate the ick.

I finally cracked the code on the cotton spinning but it's still slow going. Knowing what to do and being good at it are two different things. 

Since I spun up the two little sample punis on the takli I treated myself to a box of them from the same vendor. 

I'm not in any real hurry for the cotton because the threading of the loom has been slow going. There's been a lot going on around here and this is last on the priority list. I'm fine with doing a little at a time because it really is back breaking work. Leaning into the loom to snag one tiny thread at a time takes a lot of patience and physical bendability and by the time I get around to it I've got neither. 


  1. I like the idea of spinning a rainbow - such pretty colors.

  2. Oh gee... everything was going so good until that fridge. Fingers crossed this doesn't turn into another stove saga
