Tour de fleece 2013

Here's what I've spun so far.  I've been spinning on my wheel and spindles.  The white is Cormo and BFL and will eventually be dyed.  The green and violet is Rambouillet, the brown is CVM, the multicolored yarns are spun from batts I made on my drum carder.  Why is fiber so luscious?  Why are spinning tools so cool?

I keep knitting them.  Acer Cardigan.  It fits beautifully.

I have been knitting shawls and sweaters just in time for the warmer weather.  They'll be ready for next year.  Knitting is a year round pursuit.

Winter in the Garden in Southern California

One more day of winter break and then I'm back to work with mostly new schools.  I have achieved almost everything on my list.  I still have to wash my car and clean out the entryway closet.  So far I have pruned all of my 50 or so roses and cultivated around their bases so they'll be ready to feed when they put on their new growth, emailed some school people,  cleaned out the wrapping paper drawer,  cleaned out the closet in my crafty room,  started a new journal, done some rearranging in the garage so my school supplies are more organized, I did all of Christmas, I have been exercising (new goal: 7 hours per week), and have returned to my normal eating habits.  I wish I didn't have to work but I do, so there.
I took some pictures of the garden because I am aware of how different my winter garden looks as compared to the gardens of my friends in colder climates.  Happy New Year!
