I made a spindle.. and it spins great !

Posted: Friday, July 22nd, 2011 @ 10:03 am in FO, spinning | No Comments »

I have plans to start local workshops teaching people how to spin yarn on a spindle. On top of finding a place to do that, I also wondered how to allow people to leave with a spindle (not so easy to find in local shops… ) Yesterday night I experimented and made a spindle with […]

The best ice-cream in the world … home-made in 5 minutes !

Posted: Thursday, July 21st, 2011 @ 4:57 pm in Family, french, recipe | 1 Comment »

I have fond memories of making banana ice-cream with my younger brother when we were kids. It was so yummy !! But a bit annoying to keep turning the ice-cream in order to avoid the flaky texture. I found this recipe in a magazine the other day, and couldn’t believe it was so simple. I […]

Back from the Lot

Posted: Wednesday, July 13th, 2011 @ 2:21 pm in french, Lot et Laine wool festival | 6 Comments »

This week-end in Lot for the “Lot et laine” wool festival was fantastic. Of course it was, but I mean, really (above picture was taken early in the morning, before all the visitors arrived). There was tons of fantastic artisans and stores and workshops, and even more that I couldn’t attend because there was just […]

On Friday I went to Gap (in the french Alps) with a couple fellow ravelers to see the exposition displaying dozens of Wools of Europe. With helene, the Icelandic knitter we chatted about designing and Iceland, while with Alice we petted all the different wools and talked about spinning. The expo was fantastic: imagine a […]
