(1:02)All Spun Up

On the wheel

I started a HilltopCloud Superwash BFL/ramie blend in beautiful reds

I am aiming for a DK/sport weight so I can make a puerperium cardigan by Kelly Brooker

I have finished two Media Pockets for Kindle by Jeffrey Schindler one for me in red Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and one in a purple mystery stash yarn for Paul.


On the needles

I cast on another project – my All and Sundry shawl.  This is Sundry by Jennifer Dassau and my yarns were spun during the Tour de Fleece.

(22:35) Moment of Drama

The Island Princess by John Fletcher

Act I Scene i

Quisara. Do some brave thing that may entice me that way,
Some thing of such a meritorious goodness,
Of such an unmatcht nobleness, that I may know
You have a power beyond ours that preserves you:
‘Tis not the person, nor the royal title,
Nor wealth, nor glory, that I look upon,
That inward man I love that’s lin’d with virtue,
That well deserving soul works out a favor;
I have many Princes suiters, many great ones,
Yet above these I love you, you are valiant,
An active man, able to build a fortune;
I do not say I dote, nor meane to marry,
Only the hope is, something may be done,
That may compel my faith, and ask my freedome,
And leave opinion fair.

(25:07) Shall we Shog?
