Riin with purple hair

Yep. It’s purple.

More classes, more wheels, more color

Wow. Where to start? I’ve been making a bunch of samples to figure out how much time to allow for different classes, and I think I’ve got it worked out. I’ve added several new classes to the schedule. Basic socks, 2 at a time from the toe up socks (magic loop using a sock blank), …

What I’m up to

merino in the dyepot

So much for my plan to blog 3 times a week. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to. 1. Dyeing fiber. This is right after adding the dye, before the colors start to mingle. 2. Designing and knitting a hat. I’ll be selling the pattern once it’s finished. Here’s a preview. I actually had the …

Hey, is that a quarter behind your ear?

Ok, so I haven’t really found a way to make money just materialize (though I do pick up pennies off the sidewalk.  Maybe no one else can be bothered, but hey, it’s money.  I’ll take it).  Since my post on poverty, more ways to save money have presented themselves to me, so I thought I’d …
