"Star Dust" by Rob Gonsalves

“Star Dust” by Rob Gonsalves

I’ve been making a lot of yarn lately. It gives me something to do with my hands as I catch up with what’s on the DVR (entirely too much, is what). There’s something incredibly satisfying about taking a long length of top and using a lever and pulleys to make it into yarn–yarn that I mostly don’t use, but I keep thinking I’m going to get a loom one of these days. And then I’ll use up the pounds of yarn I’ve accumulated over the years. (I want a Saori, in part because I know that if I have to fuss around with warping I’ll never use the thing–I helped someone warp a loom once and it sucked.)

Garden update: one of the salvia and one of the hydrangea are blooming, it’s very exciting. The replacement coreopsis and phlox have arrived and are in the ground; if the phlox doesn’t make it, I may look into finding a local nursery that sells full plants as opposed to mail order bare root plants. We’ll see. Everything is doing really well, apart from the phlox. It’s exciting and it makes me happy every time I look at it.
