~ Yarn ~

After spinning so much art yarn this past year(s)-
 I figured out why my right hand - thumb, has been hurting so much.
I have RSI- repetitive strain injury.

 Simple things like
 filling gas in my car,
holding a ski pole
holding a glass of water
are incredibly painful.

Be careful if you are a spinner or a knitter
pace yourself
This is really serious.

Knitting just a few sts hurts like ****!!
Unable to do the things I love and am passionate about.

 I am wearing a brace during the day and when I sleep at night.

 Kicking myself for going overboard like this.

So what am I supposed to do?
Not  a chance...
 I am working around it.

I have been dyeing beautiful
 fingering and DK yarn this winter.

 quality yarns
that is a delight to knit with!

 Almost finished building my website
 whew...a work in progress for sure
but it is coming together
I am so excited for you to see!

More details
Coming soon!


  1. Oh my goodness this yarn looks so wonderful. Hope your hand is on the mend soon!! Popped over to Creative Courage.. looks fantastic. Would love to know what you think. I've admired her blog and I love Jill Bliss (on her list).

    Thinking of you ~ got a bit of snow. Was so EXCITED I over-skied a little bit...ok..a lot....went to bed last night at SEVEN-THIRTY.

  2. Sooo much beautiful yarny goodness in one post...overload alert!! :)

  3. Oh my word, they are just my sort of yarns! I had better start saving my pennies! xx


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
