Well!  Where indeed have I been.  No excuses...just too overwhelmed with life and work.  BUT who cares about that when there is knitting, tatting and spinning to be done!  NO ONE!!  So, after a looooong hiatus I am hoping to resume with fewer interruptions.

Tatting I have a pile of Christmas things to do.  I am currently working Terry McGuffins (Teiko  Fujito inspired) Three color ornament.  Don't forget the fun of blending threads together.  Imagine a great Hand-dyed with a blending filament from Sulky.  Yum 

Still have a few edgings to complete and a gift to self will be the new Christmas shuttle from the Shuttleshop.

On the needles the Strangling Vine Scarf from Nicole Hindes, the Riding on the Metro socks from Socks from the Toe up, and my first cardigan from Spring '09 Diminishing Rib Cardigan.  Wish me luck

Spinning some Ramboulet/Corriedale and just finished 8 oz of a yummy from Crown Mountain in Merino/Tencel (chantefleur)  Pics to come.

Enjoy and keep coming back!  Thanks for new listeners and the loyal few who listen...I love ya!!

Addendum...heard from Bonnie that the sounds was skippy in the episode.  I am going to try to retry tomorrow.  Had some difficulty uploading and had not listened to the final product...sorry. will try it again

Final note...I did re-upload the podcast and it is fine now...a bit rambly but...hey!  That's ME!  Thanks again Bonnie for the FYI..Enjoy

    Hi Arlene! I was Sooooo excited to see a new episode downloading to my IPod. Thanks so much for jumping back in. I love hearing you and find your podcasts to be one of my favorites. I am a knitter, but would love to try tatting one of these days. I would appreciate any advice you can give on the podcast or by email as to how I could go about learning. Is it something I could teach myself like I did knitting? You’ve inspired me. Maybe I will pick up my blog again where I left off last February! lol Keep the episodes coming. Just like Meghan from Stitch It, you have become an encourager in my life!
