making it a reality
it's been a puzzle these past few years. how can i spend extended time at the cabin and still continue to work. i'm not knitting commercially anymore (i used to knit at the cabin). only spinning now. i couldn't figure out how to spin at the cabin. my batts are composed of a multitude of different fibres - wools and plant fibres and bits of novelty yarns and glitter and sometimes cloth or ribbons. so i'd have to take so many materials with me. last winter i realized that i could make the batts at home and take down a pile of them to spin up. so... just a matter of getting my wheel down there. but... if i had 2 wheels. so in the spring i bought a portable wheel. and this past weekend i sat out on the bridge of the cabin and spun. i'll spend the next couple of days making up more batts and will go down on tuesday evening for the rest of the week.
