without even realizing it. Here’s what I got in the past two days minus a pair of jeans that I’m currently wearing:


I think it might be spring fever.

Yes, I realized it’s mostly spinning stuff, and books, books on spinning even. So there is one book I need for research for the knitting class I want to teach next semester (“How to knit perfect fitting sweaters”), then one on color in spinning because I might have to take the dive and start dyeing fiber as well, there’s the next installment of the Foreigner series which I love very much, there is a new flyer and bobbins for my spinning wheels which will help me make very fine yarn (I hope), and then there is all that cotton and a new spindle which will help in spinning it because my equipment is more suited to spinning wool.

And all this stuff is making me really happy right now.

But I might better stop buying things for the moment.

  1. I just bought “color in spinning” too. I intend to work my way slowly through the self-discovery exercises at the end of each chapter starting this summer. Have you seen the Twisted Sister Sock Workbook? That’s also a great book about dyeing.

    I am intending to buy Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece: Custom-Color Your Favorite Fibers with Dip-Dyeing, Hand-Painting, Tie-Dyeing, and Other Creative Techniques by Gail Callahan as I just read a great review of it.

    I am intending to dye lots of fiber this summer.

  2. Oh, ich will auch Zeugs kaufen… aber dann hätt ich keine Geld mehr zum essen. 🙁
    Erzähl mal, wie du mit der Tahkli klarkommst, ich kann mich mit meiner irgendwie überhaupt nicht anfreunden.
