Hiatus

Shame on me for not keeping up with my blog. Excuses: travel, life, yadaah. I am gratified to see that since I last caught up, I have a couple of new responses to blog entries. One from my brother - he is apparently enjoying the toque! I'm happy for that - it's all about the user experience. I'll be interested to hear if strangers comment on it. Another entry is from a friend, Glaucia, whom I met through Ravelry. Glaucia lives in Lisbon, Portugal. I'm really glad to hear from her, and I certainly wouldn't want to disappoint by producing an inferior blog.

Meanwhile - about spinning, I posted in October about a fiber that I was having trouble spinning on my Ashford Traditional. The fiber is very slippery. I tried it on my Louet Victoria and I'm having greater success. I have spun nearly a bobbin full as of Wed. 19 November. I think the big difference is that the Louet Victoria has the Scotch tension. That is allowing more control over spin and the rate at which the fiber is drawn onto the bobbin.

Hi, thanks to the visit! Really is Mafalda with Sandra in the picture and we have remembered about you yesterday. We told Sandra about Ravelry not only virtual friendship...
See you!

As you may recall, I try to post on my new blog, Dare2XL every month. Once, I forgot to post an entry! Now I have a reminder set up. Long story short, it was first on my Yahoo! calendar, then later my Google calendar, now finally on Remember the Milk, integrated into my iGoogle page. Whatever works for you....

Hi Esther. I was so happy when I saw your comment on Glaucia's blog. We remembered you! I told Sandra about your beautiful muir shawl and how kind you are.
I've closed the shop :( but I'm beggining a blog to keep in touch.
