Hansen MiniSpinner

The Hansen MiniSpinner is an electric spinning wheel. Weighs about four pounds depending on wood...they're made of maple, cherry, and some exotic woods...and the price varies according to the wood.

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend!!!

Going on Sunday. Absolutely can't wait: acres and acres of fleece and wheels and silk and angora and yarn and funnel cakes. What more could a boy ask for?

KAL: saved by a personal use shaver!

Even though I was not working on the KAL boxer briefs, I did have to go out and buy a personal use shaver to trim the fuzz off of my clogs.

Gregor Cardigan Sweater by Mathew Gnagy

Finished my sweater. Did a few changes to the original pattern. Pattern and Pattern support were great.

Stash Remodel

Last summer I picked up a ton of laceweight yarn on cones, one in pink and one in blue, and over 4500 yards of laceweight alpaca in grey/black.
