Hmm, maybe it’s just a mental block? You’ve already spun up some “hard” fibers for beginners to spin, so I’m not sure why merino/corriedale would give you trouble. I’ll bet you just need to talk yourself into it. C’mon, you can do it!

Awwww….how cute!

I got really frustrated, too, after finishing the optim and then trying to spin the merino batt. Anyway, haven’t been spinning…but I bought some petroleum jelly and I’m going to try lubing my wheel with that. I’ll see whether it will work better than the oil.

I have fiber for you!!

I’ll put it in the mail tomorrow. Your spinning is so good I’m not sure I should spin fingering weight for you anymore! It’s so pretty. You’re going to love it.

I was just thinking this Mother’s Day that now that my three boys are teenagers, I really miss these sweet “gooey with love” little gifts that they poured all their love into at school. Sweet spoons, may they live a long life showing off on your fridge.

What does bockstark mean (pronounced bok-shtark)? My crazy German friend, Matthias, made that word up to mean "really cool" and says that it is catching on in Garmisch. So I am helping him popularize the word! I thought if I ever opened a yarn store, I would call it "Bockstark Yarns". This blog is all about my projects, yarns and crazy ideas related to knitting and other crafts. Contact me at bockstark.knits(at)gmail(dot)com.
