nothing photo'd nothing gained

you know, if you are knitting, but too lazy to photograph anything, or say anything useful about knitting, then there is not much point in blogging about knitting, just knit anyway, that's what I say!

Here's the thing though, I may not have anything useful to say, but I have been having some useful knitting daydreams of late. We have had some cold nights, and this ol gal, who goes barefoot all summer long (yep, I'm one of those barefoot hillbillies) actually had cold feet!

Hey it would be cute if poseable pixie had a spindolyn in her lap. Well gotta go. Have to look at the site again to see what's new.

  2. thanks!
    yes, a pixie needs a spindolyn! now that would be fun to try and make. But your idea is a good one, to spur me on to making a couple of new pixies, they always cheer me up, visit again, I will hunt up some tutorials to post.


All about the base, the styles, the whys and wherefores

Over the years, the spindolyn base has gone through many iterations, as I have found myself wanting to spin in different seating situatio...
