Hello Kitty.

March 12, 2010

This beautiful carder was handmade using 100% North American red oak hardwood and she is a beauty! I've had my carder for a couple of weeks now and every batt I make is just as fun as the first!

My goal, to make this slow time, my busiest season...

Sock it to me

January 27, 2010

I am a changed woman. Something has come over me. I am not only addicted to knitting socks (which I previously hated), but I am knitting them on size 3 needles (size 5 WAS as low as I would go) and knitting them on 2 circulars (I swear by dpn’s). All of this drastic change- and I’m loving it. It all started after I joined in on KnittyDirtyGirl’s handspun sock knit-a-long. She is one of those crazy...

What's In A Name?

November 24, 2009

There has been a lot of tweets on Twitter about names. It's been interesting to see how people chose their titles and how they feel about them. All this chatter has been making me think about my chosen alias. I go by ontheround- obviously. It's interesting because I consider ontheround to be an actual part of my identity. I am ontheround. If someone were to yell out, "Hey ontheround!" I would...

Positive Vibrations

November 23, 2009

Anyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook knows that I had a very busy weekend. Well, if you consider sitting and spinning busy. I cleaned, prepped, dyed, and spun 4 skeins of yarn from start to finish, and have about 6 more in various stages of the process. I'm really excited about this series, for several reasons. First, I'm using wool that I purchased from Els Farm in Union, ME. It is...

Some Miscellaneous Thoughts

My entire day will be...

An Absolutely Perfect Evening

August 18, 2009

Yesterday was another steamy hot day in Mid Coast Maine and my daughter and I were stranded at our apartment all day after Evan took our one and only car to work. We were stranded in our attic apartment with poor insulation and skylights that the sun beats down on all day cooking us like bugs under a magnifying glass. It was brutal. So when Evan got home, we decided to pack up dinner and have a...
