Alluring Materials

Sometimes that's why I keep this up, the materials are so attractive. This week, I'm warping 30's/2 silk:

30-2 silk

Also spinning some Blue Faced Leicester, dyed months ago (here), and needing a little pre-drafting, but then spinning up like butter:

BFL spun

Listening to books on tape (Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier this week: quite the Victorian Novel), and watching the rain, hail, and even yet more snow this morning.

But I'm snug and warm, the materials are delightfully tactile, and with hot tea and a book on tape, what could be better?

Curious as to how you are enjoying that one. I have read several others of hers (have you read the one on the unicorn tapestries? If not, you of all people should), but couldn't get in to that one quite as well for some reason.

That silk is gorgeous - so fluid. What's it going to be? Wedding shawl?

Are those your high speed bobbins?

Um, it was almost 60 degrees and sunny here today. Maybe 70 degrees and sunny on Friday.

Just sayin'.

But the tea and the book and the silk still sound delightful.

A young woman
Sits by a swimming pool
Painting her toenails.

It is midnight.

She wonders
Whether it is possible
To foretell the future
Using an avocado pear.

Her husband brings her
An avocado pear.

This is strange.
The young woman
Has no husband.

As I read some crochet lists I found this blog - scroll down to January 1. Now you see why I thought of you. Not to mention, San Diego location. Hmmm.
