Whoops. Meant to update a lot sooner than, oh, seven weeks or so ago, but you know how it goes.
Work remains fairly interesting. I’m working on NOT wandering into personal minefields topped with a sprinkling of emotional clusterbombs, but I manage to set a few off every week and have been dealing with the fallout and attendant psychic wounds. And yet, even with all the flailing and tears and sadness, there’s been a truly RIDICULOUS amount of growth as well, and nearly all of it positive.
Weird how that works, no?
Have a few things for sale as I am really short on funds and long on things I should be using but maybe am not using enough to warrant keeping right now when I have so very many bills to pay.
Sundara Aran Silky Merino in Prickly Pear, two skeins. $32/each, upgrade to priority for free if you buy both.
Sundara Fingering Silky Merino in Prickly Pear, two skeins, $50/each, upgrade to priority for free if you buy both.
Majacraft Suzie Alpaca wheel, with Woolee Winder and at least three bobbins (I need to see how many I have). You can see the Alpaca here at the manufacturer’s website. $850 includes US UPS ground shipping. The price of gets you the WW and bobbins for free. GREAT deal. Many thanks!
Pat Greene Triple Picker. Brand freakin’ new. $525, though this will be a bit awkward to ship. You can see a picture and more info on the manufacturer’s website. I have a LOT of wool that’s going to be a pain to process without this, but thought I’d see if anyone was interested. YAY! Thank you!
Still have the Strauch Doublewide Finest electric drum carder for sale as well. $1750, if we could split the shipping that would be really lovely as this is heavy and big.

By the by, if anyone is wondering, I did in fact record chapters 20 & 21 of The Scarlet Letter for Craft Lit, but due to a mix up Heather never got the files and ended up reading at least chapter 20 herself. I haven’t gotten past the part in ep 144 where she said she couldn’t find the file for the person who said she’d record. Yeah, that would be me. I did spend a LOT of time recording both chapters, hours even, struggling with Hawthorne’s damn language and alas, in the end it was all for naught. Except, perhaps, some personal enrichment. Hrmph. Ah well, podcasting and audio book reading fame continues to elude me (Brenda Dayne, though she said she liked my voice and would put me in the queue to read essays, never has gotten back to me…hello?). :D
Finishing up a baby sweater, though by finishing I mean “needs to be washed and blocked so I can pick up stitches/seam/do the hood”, and continuing to work on a very simple, very basic, very nice to have as a “I don’t have to think” project with some Sundara FSM. I don’t even mind that the damn thing is taking forever to do. It’s just nice to knit with.
Listening to The History of Rome as I need to clear some space off my drive and there’s a lot of backlogged eps. And by a lot I mean “nearly all of them but the first four that I listened to, oh, months ago”. I’m up to ep 35 or 36 now…whichever ones are right in the midst of the first Triumvirate and Caesar’s rise and soon to be spectacular fall. Me likey. These are fairly short, Mike Duncan, the podcaster, has a nice voice and a fairly dry sense of humor. It’s a nice change up from all the knitting. I’ve also downloaded a bunch of language podcasts, a whole whack of new-to-me pagan shows, and a smattering of random things.
More later. I really need to get to work now.
