Hey my beautiful followers. I hate to be the person to do this, but money is tight right now (I’m working two jobs right now too) so I’m promoting my store. Please buy from it, share the link or message me with a request. I have lots of things I am willing to make or sell, but I don’t have the money to list it right not. If you want something let me know and I’ll make a listing just for you. So please buy from me. Yes, I am begging. No shame.

233/365 handspun evenstar shawl got 1st on MN State Fair 2014 on Flickr.

Hilariously they spelled my name wrong.

The handspun evenstar got 1st under Shawl lightweight yarn category. There were 48 people entered in the lot.

Here’s the original post to the handspun evenstar shawl.

232/365 hubby’s better at organizing the house stuff on Flickr.
Hubby is better at rearranging furniture while I’m better at paper stuff. This is why I don’t do well being a housewife. I let him shine at what he does best and he lets me shine at what I do best. For years, I tried to force myself to change to be a proper housewife. But it’s easier to accept what I’m good at. And after all this years, though I still have some feeling like “I should do this because of (blank)” because I still compare myself to others like my own race. Let’s just say it’s a bad idea to compare.

once I chart out the pattern, it’s faster for me to knit this scarf. The written pattern takes too long for me to follow

Boat Shuttle Bobbin Winding

A friend said I could use electric drill to wind weaving bobbins. That would reduce the investment from $200 to $80 total. I could do that. The bobbin winder is the most expensive part. Like $150 or so.

All about boat shuttles for your rigid heddle loom

I’ve been thinking whether I should get a boat shuttle for my ashford knitter’s loom 28in because I’m drawn to weave finer threads and finer dpi. Then that means I have to invest another $200 to get the Schact slim boat shuttle, the 10 pack bobbins and the bobbin winder.

The Schact slim boat shuttle seems to be the boat shuttle I need.
