Collins—Episode Two hundred thirteen–Trafficking in Wool


Today, the Third Epoch (Walter’s narrative), sections v-vii of the Woman in White.

Good to be back and start to feel “normal” ish. New and old friends surround me, as does humidity, heat, mosquitoes, and lightening bugs. Also lemonade and whiskey. What’s not to love?

Looking for a good pattern for a knitted A-line skirt. Anyone? Anyone? I’m sure you know the new Knitty is out, but did you know that the Double Heelix sock is there? It’s soooooo kewl! Madame Defarge appears on blogs and in Ravelry queues! A good sign!

Some newsy ideas: make your own laundry soap (save some ducats) and make your own wool dryer balls (there are some lovely argyle ones on Etsy). Why, you ask, would you want a dryer ball? To stop static cling and dry your clothes faster, thus cutting down on expensive dryer time and eliminating the need for dryer sheets!

OTN: Spindle-spun Handknit socks

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find another that is.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
