True Colors

According to this "scientific" quiz, I am aquamarine....Which happens to be my favorite color! Maybee it IS scientific.

you are aquamarine

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Twisters and Sisters

TP Tubes

I haven't mentioned spinning in a while. Here's some of my spindle spun yarn. I love using the toilet paper tubes to store singles on. It's very convenient, there's always a new one soon to be available, and it's recycling! By counting the number of times I've gone around the tube (and writing it down on the edge), I can figure how much yardage I have on each tube (after measuring the circumference of the tube) -- simple math!. Here I have three mini skeins of 3 ply. I LOVE this spindle! I bought it at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It's a Golding -- I bet you didn't guess that.... He has a "new" line of spindles that he makes out of vintage bracelets. This is a vintage enamel bracelet and it spins like a dream.


Isn't this precious? Sophie needed a soft furry friend when she was a baby. This is her "cat," Linguini. He's called that because he's long and thin. Sophie is now 4 years old but she still needs to spend a little bit of every day with her special pal. Usually she kneads his belly while rubbing her little chin whiskers on his fuzzy body. She gets this blissed out look, then she falls asleep. 

And Not So Innocent

And Sophie's sister, Dot, naps with her special pal, DH. Yes, I'm afraid that she's "the other woman." Her look says that I am. She's really very sweet, no really! Except with her sister -- but those of us with sisters can understand. It's a girl thang.

"Made in the Shades" Scarf

My most recent creation  I call the "Made in the Shades" Scarf. I've used three colorways of Noro Silk Garden Lite with a mitered squares technique.

 I can wear it draped....

I can wear it folded...  



It is 88 inches long and 10 inches wide -- 2 squares. 

The colors are are
 worked so that, when folded in half lengthwise, the orangey colors are on the same side. 

Why "Made in the Shades"? 

The colorways I chose have color shades that overlap to make the most of the color movement, one shade into the next. 

          --  I  LOVE  IT!
