Cricket

I’m still limping along with my old computer trying to figure out why I can no longer transfer photos from my digital camera.  The computer does not recognize my camera. Soon, real soon, I will venture into my local Apple store to free myself from the drudgery of using an old computer.

In the meantime, I’ve been weaving using a Cricket http://www.schachtspindle.com/our_products/cricket.php

THE CRICKET LOOM

I plan on experimenting with different types of yarns in the warp and pushing plain weave past its boundaries.  I’ve had my first weaving class on Cricket and I’m amazed how easy it is to warp the loom.  My instructor, Sandy, owner of Purlescence Yarns in Sunnyvale, CA https://twitter.com/purlescence suggested I try spinning too.  My first spinning experience was not a very positive one, so I’m a little reluctant to “go down that road again.”

Speaking of “road”, I finally wore out my hiking boots.  Today, I purchased a pair of jogging/hiking shoes.  While trying on the shoes, I mentioned to the salesperson that I’ve been jogging in my hiking books.  He looked a little confused…”Did you say you jog in hiking boots?”  “Yes, I’m motivated, I’ve lost 65 pounds.”

So, if I’m not weaving on Cricket or knitting, I’m out pounding the pavement.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
