Studio Days

It was cold and windy in the northwoods today, warming up to a brisk -6 F around 10 AM this morning. A great day to stay in the studio and do more cleaning and organizing. More and more I want clear, uncluttered, organized work spaces, and I’m enjoying the process of choosing what to keep, what is useful to my life now, and what can go. Keep the memories, not necessarily the stuff.

All in all, I’ve been very happy with the studio swap, as I have more space now, and better light during the day for weaving, spinning, and cranking socks. Evenings, I work upstairs, closing toes on socks, sewing, and combing/carding fleece. Last night I worked on some wonderfully lustrous Lincoln fleece, using a flicker as it is too long for the drum carder. There is always more to learn, and how to use wool combs is on my list.

“Holly & Ivy,” newly cranked, are shown below. Pat received her red and black “Checkerboard” socks in the mail, Carol is coming over Wednesday to choose four pairs of socks and in this bitter cold weather, I could use a few more pairs of wool socks myself. As I write this, it is -16 F., and dropping.
