The Muthu’ Ro

Aeolian Update Knitting to the center of Row 43 took 2 hours and ten minutes. This includes adding beads to threader floss, switching podcasts on iTunes from Sticks and String to This American Life, and scrambling to answer a ringing phone. Not bad. Not bad at all. Now for some more of that Tiramisu to…

And we have a Winner!

People I’m all about the Random Generator over at Random.org. I put in how many comments there were and the great Randomator in the ether selected 22. The 22nd comment was from One Sheep! You’re the winner! It seems that One Sheep created a blog just to enter the contest. This knitter must love her…

And yet another gifting!

It’s August and time for another yarn give away! (AKA Denise bought yarn and needs to make a little room in the stash.) Off the top of my head I’ll say – there’s at least two skeins of sock yarn, several balls of lace yarn, oh and more lace weight. Included is a tube of…

Aeolian Take Two

This is how the day goes… Good breakfast, great cup of coffee. Second cup of coffee. Start two batches of soap in the studio. Return to house to face… The blue silk mess that was too much to face last night. I grab the laptop for music. The reading glasses for sight. A glass of…

Aeolian Fever

Really – it must be a disease – an exotic fever. Elizabeth Freeman brought it in from the Mojave Desert and infected countless knitters across the globe. We should have seen it coming after the Laminaria incident of 2008. Needless to say – I’ve caught it. Aeolian Fever. My first Aeolian, which I dearly love,…

The Age Old Question

When I woke this morning I had the same question on my mind as when I went to bed. Will my second Aeolian be silk or zephyr? Silk or Zephur? Silk or Zephur? Silk or Zephur? Last night I finished row 22 of the Edging Set-Up Chart. Visible yarn choices later in the day…it’s 4am…
