acres of knitting projects,
dozens of looms,
and mountains of angst,
in a very small space.
for your kind comments last week.
I love getting glimpses into your lives --
to hear what you're working on and discover how often there are parallels.
We makers are bonded by so many things,
most of us struggling to make sense of time and materials management.
From sorting ideas,
to sorting laundry,
how many projects can a person juggle in one wee, gynormous, life?
1. The book I was listening to is Eligible, yet another modern Pride and Prejudice homage.
Will check out Magpie Murders! Thanks for the suggestion Marilee.
I do so love books-- of all sorts.
2. My six dyes: Cochineal, Madder, Weld (all three with alum/tarter), Indigo, and Walnut.
(Yes, that is five, but as you may have noticed I've been drifting back to my natural dye roots with lichen experiments, and since I'm trying a variety, with new ones waiting patiently in line, ahem Marilyn, the sixth dye is really more of a category and gets its own parenthetical aside).
3. While I won't subject you to my diary comics with every post,
I much appreciate the support for these bits of messy dailyness.
A graphic memoir-ish thing though -- golly, that'd be an undertaking.
Anyone else believe that the world needs more domestic and textile centric comics--
the ones about US-- the real superheros?
Cuz we know how to make yarn.
And cloth (in myriad guises).
Is that not a superpower?
