The paper holds their folded faces to the floor.

I don't know what happened to the last two months, they just disappeared.

Let's get you all caught up. First things first. I HAVE NOTHING on the needles. The knitting mojo left just about the time I got my surgery date.

Let's fix this... like yesterday..
I will be down one arm for most of the summer.
So, goodbye Sirius Rising, Camping,
any heavy lifting and working in the garden.

Even Phaedre is down for the summer minus her wheel...















It's a sad time here..

Okay, the summer started off great with Clermont.















Oodles of fluffy goodness.

Then proceeded to Memorial Day and
Mass Sheep and Wool (Cummington)















Wait a minute, where's the crowd?

Somethings off....

But Dave of Merlintree was there with his
CPW wheels on parade.















All of them beautifully restored.

That's where Phaedre's Wheel is getting repaired.

I ran across the new Kromski there




















Simple in execution, lovely in design.
I know it would spin well

But it does not fold. (vid)

One of the simplest things
that I wish I had purchased was this
spindle















Wow...

On the geeky side of the house.

Doc, my print/file/music server died
horribly. I went to boot it up after a circuit
breaker popped and he did not come back on line.

Main 40 gb hard drive may be toast.

Both of my older P3 form
factor boards had bad capacitors
so they would not boot past post.















$40.00 later and a run on the test bench...

I did a major overkill here.

See the dead mobos on the monitor?

Some more eye candy..




















Say hi to Emma, H's new toy.

She spins like a dream.

Until next time.

  1. Hello, Emma! She's a beauty.

    I saw the new Kromski at Maryland Sheep and Wool and had to stop myself from pulling out the credit card.
