Roving to yarn – blue


After a fairly simple, but delicious lunch – boiled potatoes,  zucchini patty and tossed salad –


I sat down to an afternoon of plying and now this one pound of blue roving is spun and plied, ready to wash and knit.   This pile of blue yarn represents hours and hours and hours of work, done bit by bit.     Little bits of time really add up.

      Thank you – now I just have to decide what style sweater it wants to be. Meanwhile, I have lots of other fiber to spin.
      Were you the one that wanted to know about granola. My basic recipe is 10 cups oats and 1/2 honey. However, I never make basic. I always add at least 4 cups of other grains, nuts, and fruits to this and some more honey for moisture. If the fruits are already dry, I add them after I have dehydrated the granola. I usually make a double batch and last time I found some blueberries and mulberries at Costco. They were delightful. The nuts I chop up a bit in blender before adding.
