Two posts in two days!!! Let’s not get crazy, shall we? ;)
This post is going to be photo heavy. Enjoy it.
An update about Monster’s first morning of school. It’s only 9:30 am, and I cannot wait to pick him up and see how his day went!
We got up super early, so we had time to squeeze in a couple of Mario Kart races; the morning was off to a great start!
He was super excited about his backpack and getting to school,
(this is his superhero pose, btw)
and even when we got to the room he was super great.
But alas, the time came for his dad and I to leave the room and the tears welled up in his eyes. . . and then in ours, but we held them back to be strong for him. He cried a little because he wasn’t sure of the new environment, but I think he did a little better after we left (we peeked in without him noticing).
I really really wish that I could call to make sure everything is going well, but I can’t! I miss him right now and I hope he’s having more fun than not. He should have a good day, because today is music day, and if he takes after me the music will make everything a-ok.
Intermission. . .
Let the fiber love begin
As of late, I have been in a spinning craze. I’ve updated the shop with all sorts of goodies, and have been at my spinning wheel every day cranking out bundles of pure yarn bliss. Some of it is my hand dyed, some of it is not – I really enjoy spinning fiber dyed by others because every dyer has their own “eye for color” that varies from artist to artist. I won’t put any yarn details here, but if you want to know yardage and what-not, head over to my Ravelry stash.
Southern Cross Fibre
And of course there’s more. . . but you get the point! ;)
Last but not least
I am selling my wheel!!! No, I’m not giving up spinning. I’m ready to upgrade my wheel a little so that I may explore more aspects of handspinning and my Julia doesn’t offer everything that I am looking for. If I could keep the Louet Julia AND get the wheel I want, I would certainly do that, but in order to buy a new wheel I need to get some money by selling my current one. :( So sad!!!
Anyway, if anyone is interested, please let me know – and tell your friends!
Louet Julia S11 details
- Louet Julia wheel (no missing parts)
- Lazy Kate
- 6 bobbins (3 came with the wheel when it was originally purchased)
The lazy kate is missing two of the three caps, but this does not affect its use.
Retail value is $787 (via The Woolery)
I am asking $650/obo I’m willing to negotiate.
I would prefer pickup in Austin, Texas, but am willing to ship (buyer will pay for shipping costs).

Thanks for tuning in! :)
