A lot has happened, in the last year and a half, and absolutely none of it has been documented here.  In fact, I’ve all but abandoned my little corner of the interwebs, occasionally poking in to deal with spambots or to start a draft…

But this week a plan has started to emerge and now I feel like I’m ready to give this another shot. So, here I am, back to Square One, with a new look and a new commitment.

I am undecided in how to deal with my few previous posts; whether to leave them up or to delete them forever, but I will quickly bring you up to speed on what has happened since.

First, in the spring of 2013, I learned to spin and was gifted a lovely spinning wheel (which I still have).

I also experimented with acid dyeing fibre, which I promptly spun and knit into mug cozies.

Spinning kept me occupied through to the fall, then there was a wild jaunt in a two-day workshop knitting with wire.

I left my boring, ugly office job that winter, had a short liaison with needle felting and rediscovered a childhood friend in crochet in the spring (and fell in love with Noro).

Summer began while visiting a lovely yarn shop in Spain and finished with a new obsession: embroidery.

So, as you can see, there is potential for me to have many projects, plans and adventures, which I will endeavour to share here. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you are, too.
