...mountains are destroyed by the currents of rivers."

The river is high and fast today.

Making or destroying the mountains that surround me....

Work has begun on a new project. I'm still entertaining ideas. They form gently, fade away, and then return. Decisions and notes need to be made. In the meantime, there is yarn being created.

More Alpaca locks from Allspice ...

...await their turn at the spindle of the Great Wheel.

It looks like the river is running wild. A real springy look. I love the color of the yarn made from Allspice. It reminds me of Luna (my dog).

The third picture made me think of a chapel window. And it made me happy. Thank you.

Cyndy, are you working on a triangle loom? with the yarn that's pictured? That looks fascinating to me...what and how are you doing it????
I think you need to email me so I can read it over and over..it looks like it may be complicated:o)

No rivers here but there was plenty of rain to make the creeks rise. Now we're expecting another big snow. My spinning wheel is going to be humming, too!

Definitely a chapel window. Fantastic shot. Can't wait to see your other works in progress!

Such a lovely lacy fabric.

Can you tell me about the loom you're using in this post? (i.e. what the set is and how thick the yarn is?) I'm wanting to build a couple continuous warp looms for all this handspun... :)
