So much to learn...

I've spent most of today trying to figure out this blogging thing. I'm sure it will be a while before I work out all the kinks, so for now I'm having fun learning from my mistakes.

This morning, before I opened up this blog, I was working on creating an interesting new fiber blend. I discovered how nicely bamboo roving blends with wool. Really amps up the shine factor! I also threw in some cut up sari silk, dyed cotswold curls and green cut silk roving.












This photo thing is impossible... that picture is way too big. I'll have to figure out how to resize these things before I put any more up. How to people do these things without expensive software programs like photoshop?  (9/8/06... I figured it out!!!  Now I can put up photos!)

Wow... it's getting super hot now... feels about 100 degrees in here today! I'm sweating just sitting here!

Oh yeah, I wanted to mention what a great time I had on Saturday at Gwen Powell's supported spindle class. What was really cool about it was that because the draft and twist process is so slowed down, I could really observe the mechanics of making yarn. It has really helped with my technique back at the wheel and drop spindle... who knew? I'm glad my friend Mariko encouraged me to join the class. She's the best!

You can see some nice photos and commentary at Francesca' blog Fluffbuff.

Congratulations on starting your blog! It takes a while to figure everything out, but it's fun. And see? you already got your first comment. :)
BTW, what kind of aquarium do you have? I used to get my supplise at Mark's Fish, too, when I had a reef tank, a few years ago. So much work…

Thanks for the encouragement and the comment! It is pretty fun...

I have a 29 gal tropical freshwater aquarium. My favorite fish are my four clown loaches. I will be putting up a section about my tank as soon as I get this photo modification thing figured out. You have such nice photos on your blog... I might have to pick your brain the next time I see you ;-)
