Okay, yes, there has been knitting going on. But I have also been taking a number of yoga classes lately too. Including a class Easter morning. It was a renewal class. So I was up extra early Easter morning. And I shot this photo before class at the farm that is basically right behind me.
And the class was a renewal commitment to yoga. It was taught by one of the master teacher instructor for Shiva Rea. I have tried hot yoga before but this time it just clicked. And it was hard but I kept up. And yes, afterwards, I felt like a wet noodle and my clothing was soaked with sweat. But I cam looking forward to taking more classes in this style. And it turns out that I know the instructor’s mother. Her mother is a knitter!
Some one asked about my spindle collection so I decided to photograph a few of my favorites plus what I am currently spinning.
I like spindles but I do not have that great a relationship with them. I can spin on them but it just doesn’t flow as easily as it does on a wheel for me. But I think I will go back and do some practice with my spindles since they are portable.
And the fiber in the photo is a silk/merino blend. It is so soft! I can’t wait to spin it up. But I must first finish up what I have on the bobbins already. And since I want to spin it up really thin, I need to finish up the fiber on the Matchless first. I guess I will be spending time with the wheel this weekend.
And O got permission to go onto this property I have been wanting to photograph for awhile. It is a farm that was originally owned by the founder of the town I live in. It has been privately owned for the last several decades. The town just bought it but they have not decided what they are going to do with it. I asked the town manager for permission to do some outside photography this weekend. And I was told that there was no problem with me going to shoot it. And the town will be holding an open house soon and I was given permission to photograph inside the house that day too!
