So, Umm . . .

Lazy Kate  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:

*sigh* I'm still working on figuring out my drop spindle. Not as easy as many online directions would have one think. Knitting and crochet I got-- spinning is giving me trouble. . . *sigh, again*

So, you wanna write a piece or two over at my place?
