    I thought I’d post a picture of my home spinning project. I work from home several days a week. My spindle is a great stress killer.

    It seemed like a great project at the time but I’m starting to feel like I will never finish it. I’m getting close but bad stuff continues to happen. I took the time to string a lot of beads to try and finish it. Then I found a bad spot in the yarn. All wasted time. I was in the process of moving to a larger needle too.

    I was listening to a cooking show the other day, while I was working on the edging for my Featherwwight cardigan. The hostess was talking about how you could vary the dish by changing the spices. It seemed to me to be a lot like what I was doing, setting off a feather and fan edging with a reverse stockinette stitch welt, adding some short rows to the collar. The pattern is a pretty basic one. I just spiced it up a bit, to make it more to my liking.
