Substitutions possible.

Note from a concerned friend this morning:

Darling, I know you’ve been tired lately, but I hafta tell you that you dyed your daughters instead of your wool! Good colors, though. And they don’t seem to mind. I’m afraid to show my daughters …


30 pounds of wool is all there was… what else is there to do?


Carding, carding, carding today.  Spinning around to the sounds of Pomplamoose.  I find it is IMPOSSIBLE to be anything but joyful while listening to them.  Go ahead–give it a try. :)   Here are 3 of my faves.

Updated Mushaboom Gnomegarden

“We’ll collect the moments one by one

I guess that’s how the future’s done.”

That’s just one of my favorite songs.

I named one of my yarns Mushaboom this go round, in it’s honor.

I just finished a big update at the gnomegarden etsy shop.  Here’s the scoop:

Here is an update that was a long time coming :)   ! go to the ETSY! Please  share it with your fiber loving friends and family!

Look for more frequent updates this Spring with lots of spinning fiber, and luscious yarn.

Many of the yarns in this update look fabulous in combination, thus alleviating the ever present question “well, what would I do with one skein??” :)   If you need more ideas though, there is a fab website of low yardage genius at simple patterns to knit with 1-285 yards of yarn and on Ravelry for  “free knit patterns– 285 yards or less”

Please visit me this Spring and let me know how you are!

Song for today…

Love this song.  Get’s stuck in my head like a much needed anthem.

Funny my fingers are all cracked and ouchy from so much dyeing.  I do wear gloves… one of lifes great mysteries I guess.

Happy Friday.

Good To BE.
