April is around the corner now, high time for March’s Fiber Giveaway !! (Now CLOSED – come again next month for April’s Fiber Giveaway !)

We spun yarn on a wheel !!

This morning I finally (after my car’s breakdown last week) got to visit Claudia and her brand new (to her) Louet S10 wheel. First task was to assemble it, and somehow manage to get the tension right to be able to spin some yarn.. That took a good hour probably, after changing a couple bolts […]

Just a quick post to send a shoutout to Emy, who still hasn’t sent me her postal adress so that I can send her the blue Mini-batts. I’ve checked my spam folder and didn’t see anything, can’t comment on your blog, and apparently my messages are rejected as “containing spam or virus content”. :-/ In […]

Slowly getting back to normal life, spinning etc..

So, I’ve been resting a lot this week, taking naps, spinning some, reading some, and slowly going back to normal life. The operation went really well, and apart from tiredness the first days and more fragile vocal cords (they’re close to the thyroid and probably got a bit disturbed by this new configuration in my […]

Hi, just a note to say hi, I got back from the clinic today. Thanks for all the well wishes ! The operation went fine, now I’m just quite tired. So don’t worry if I don’t post much in the coming week… :-)
