Friendly reminder that my Senior Love Along continues on this year.  I am collecting cotton wash clothes to hand out to seniors living in homes during the holiday season. Please hold on to your washcloths until later in the year. There is an FO thread where you can post a picture of each of your washcloths. Each one you make is a chance to win a prize! I will be announcing prizes that I will provide very shortly and unashamedly ask for any prize donations. They would be very welcome and much appreciated!

  1. Your backyard is gorgeous! You’ve given me so many knitting ideas in the past, and now the Knitters Curiosity III! Just the few pictures from the book that you showed look beautiful, and like you, I’ll probably want to knit them all. 🙂
    It’s great that you have such a loving family that can support you through all you do. I hope the remaining year will get easier, and things will start falling into place. Primarily your sons health, and then your kitchen. Been there done that, and the renovations keep continuing LOL
    Love your blog, and look forward to it always,
    Sincerely,
    Charlene
    P.S.: Would love to see you spindling. I’m a beginner spindler, and I learn so much by watching others. Is there anyway you could include a brief clip of you spindling in the next videocast? I’ve been spinning on my wheel for many years, but this spindling is a challenge.

    • Thanks so much for the well wishes. I’m thinking maybe a Knitters Curiosit Cabinet KAL? from any of her 3 books? What do you think? Maybe after Tour de Fleece is over people would like that. I would be happy to spin on the podcast next time. It is really so much easier with the punis. You should give them a try before you throw in the towel with spindal spinning.
