So, Umm . . .
On Facebook I was lamenting how sad it was that so many knitters have stopped blogging, as I was going through my blogroll list to prune out the inactive blog. And so I don't have the finger pointing at me as well, I'm resurfacing.
Okay, I've got a couple of posts waiting in ecto. I had to delete one, though, because the ricotta recipe I tried out turned out to be a disaster (must be that over-processed milk, and I don't have a farmer friend who will slip me a gallon or two of raw milk when nobody's looking).
I do have something blog-worthy. From time to time, I express to Hubby a desire for this or that spinning tool. I was complaining to hubby how hard it was to keep the singles from getting twisted together prematurely and how it was a pain in the neck to have to untwist everytime I picked up where I stopped. I showed him a picture of the lazy kate in The Intentional Spinner: A Holistic Approach to Making Yarn by Judith MacKenzie.
So, Hubby looked for a few blocks of wood, took out his router and set up shop on the back of his truck (we have a townhouse-size garage) and went to town. Here's another view, from the side:
I can't wait to try it out!
