Here is a photo of the staircase leading up to my apartment taken during the one and only snowy night in Houston in 2008. I wish I could have played in the snow that day, but I was stuck in an office and far to tired to run around in the dark once I got home. But I do so love the cold weather - perfect for knitting or reading a book wrapped up in a cozy blanket...
This is the first skein of yarn that I spun using my drop spindle. It was created with "Whales and Spock" batts from Hobbledehoy at Etsy.com. I've since purchased an old Ashford Traditional spinning wheel, but I haven't take pics of anything I've spun on it yet.
