Daily Reflections From My Window

June 17, 2021 Thursday. Fiber All Day!


“Beauty itself is but the sensible image of the infinite.”

U.S. historian George Bancroft

I never get tired of this view. It changes by the minute and sometimes is hard to capture with my camera phone. Today the phone shows lots of pink but the actual view is quite blue. Still beautiful either way. Reminds me of a gradient yarn I should make.

Yesterday we had some visitors. Or the alpacas did! I met Kathie (far left) at Fort Ligonier Days a few years ago and she asked if I could make a hat to go with a fur headband that she loved to wear. Of course! I made a simple beanie that was detachable so that if needed, she could remove and wash and we’ve been in contact ever since. Except I forgot how I knew her even though she is wearing the hat in her profile picture. I don’t think she’d mind me sharing it. You can see the white knit peeking up at the very top. Dang this memory! But it’s coming back. She brought some friends along and we had a great time introducing the alpacas and exploring fiber. I did too. Got the cobwebs dusted off and gave me an opportunity to see what was what in my inventory.

Dryer balls come in all white, Grey and black. A set of 5 is $30. Here’s the link.

Felted insoles-in the bin. All sizes. Great if you are on your feet all day.

Here’s that link.

And yarn! All different prices, textures and colors. I’m still working on those links and the others.

I’m getting ready to start a rug with this beautiful corespun yarn. I do have a link to The yarn here.

Fingerless mitts too! Hats and more hats. Prices to come.

It all comes from this! Here they are in full fleece.

And after. All of that fiber becomes something. I’ll have more links tomorrow.

Like this roving for spinners or felters. The link is here. Thanks Kathie for your visit. It was so nice to meet your friends and you re-inspired me! I’m grateful for people like you!

I better get to work. The day’s a wastin’!

In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.

Have a blessed day!
