Cozy Corner

I love to spin with my drop spindle in the evening. It keeps my hands busy. I drink a nice cup of herbal tea or, healthier yet, a big glass of water. I'm not riveted to most of what's on the tube (with the exception of Downton Abbey or Doc Martin). Spinning is productive. I get yarn when I'm finished. I don't have to concentrate on my project, my hands remember what to do. It's tactile. The fiber is soft, the yarn on my spindle is squishy like a teddy bear. I'm spinning dark chocolate brown pure Alpaca, a gift from my daughter from our local farm, Alpaca Hill.  Many spinners would consider the process a bit boring. They need color - the brighter the better - to lift their spirits out of the mid-winder doldrums. I look forward to my little corner at the end of the day - pure, cozy comfort.


  1. Sounds wonderful!! And your corner looks so cozy. Glad I could be there for you with the crumb cake recipe...your break up story is so funny!

  2. I don't know a single soul who spins yarn. How cool! Sounds like the perfect thing to do on a winter night.

    Thank you so much for linking with us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We are thrilled with the turnout and happy to have you. :)

  3. Sounds like an interesting activity. I have never had the opportunity to spin yarn. I am with you about the tube. We usually do not watch tv but get to be selective from Netflix. We are watching Downton Abbey. I have seen a couple of episodes of Doc Martin and it was interesting. Father Brown was pretty good however I have seen only 3-4 episodes.

  4. What a charming hobby!

    Thank you so very much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence really helped to make it very special. I hope you will return again and again.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!
