elenadee On Sunday I took my almost-working wheel to the @darnyarnneedlesandthread Spin-In and was lucky enough to have Amanda the Wheel Whisperer take a look at it. She did a little magic and it's working now!! Well, mostly. There's still some minor issues, and is very slow going, but I MADE YARN. 2d

elenadee Bought a tiny #crossstitch kit at the flea market last weekend so I could give it a try. Took way longer than I felt it should have but was pretty fun. 3d

elenadee This brat has so much attitude but I love her. Thinking it's somewhere around her 7th birthday (hatchday?), as I got her in April of 2008 and she was about 10 weeks at the time. 5d

elenadee 40yds of #handspun #handspunyarn camel/angora blend. This was just a test, but it's so amazing I might have to make more. 7d

elenadee @calam_ity_liz tagged me in some "beautiful women" thing. I have no idea how it's supposed to work, and I'm not going to tag anyone (though, friends and followers of any gender, feel free to do this if you want to). As a rather un-photogenic photographer, I spend most of my time making others look beautiful and don't really consider myself as such, especially not in pictures (being a photographer makes me super critical). That being said, I always feel like I look beautiful in suspension photos. It's when I can really let go, relax, and be happy, and it has helped me to be more confident in myself and my body. 1w

elenadee I've reached a new low in my failure at avoiding hipsterdom as I am currently storing my home made granola in glass jars. We ran out of plastic baggies. I sort of like this way better because recycling and it won't rip in my purse. 3w

elenadee Fun "kitchen sink" batt I made from the random bits of fiber lying around my living room. This has....wool (BFL and Tunis), alpaca, bamboo, silk (recycled sari silk and hand reeled), angelina, cotton, and a teensy bit of copper because I hadn't used it yet. My plan is make a fun art yarn by letting it do its thing and not trying very hard to keep it even. 4w
  •   cuppysmama I can't wait to see it! I'm washing fiber today and I didn't think it through...It's 26° outside : ( I can dry a limited amount in the bathroom. Will it dry in the cold basement? It's above freezing but pretty freaking cold. 4w
  •   elenadee @cuppysmama posted a pic now, it's amazing!! I think you would really like this skein. I dry mine in the kitchen when it's cold out. It would probably dry in your basement but the bathroom is probably better. Any room in your kitchen? 4w
  •   cuppysmama Not so much : / we are thinking of downsizing homes so washing fleece might only be a summer thing soonish! 4w
  •   elenadee @cuppysmama it's definitely easier to wash in the summer! I can only do small bits of fleece at a time right now. Luckily yarn doesn't take quite as much room, so you'll be good for when spinning starts! 4w

elenadee Today (Friday) is the worst my knees have looked so far after Sunday's suspension. I'm surprised they bruised so little. 1mon
  •   clairenobyl_disaster That looks like my legs after a good skin picking. 1mon
  •   madbitten Whoo you are brave 1mon
  •   elenadee @clairenobyl_disaster leg hair follicles are among my least favorite things in the world. Tweezers make it all better. 1mon
  •   clairenobyl_disaster Tweezers are my favorite things in this whole wide world. 1mon
  •   gore_jessica_renae I cannot believe that's it! Well, I suppose all the blood left that area! Haha! My knees after Lady Bathory ended up close to this. 1mon

  •   dat_taz_girl Can't wait to finally do this 5d
  •   elenadee @dat_taz_girl it's so awesome! If you've never suspended before, I recommend starting with your back, but knees was definitely a cool experience. 5d
  •   dat_taz_girl Oh yea I couldn't do my knees, too much leg surgery. I can only imagine how great it felt tho! Congrats on gettin over the fear, I won't lie, I'm pretty nervous lol 5d
  •   elenadee @dat_taz_girl Thanks! I was super nervous for nervous for knees. Don't wanna mess up those surgeries though, so yeah, you probably should stay away from this position! Back is pretty easy, it just feels like pulling/pressure, not actually too painful. Getting off the ground is mental really weird the first time or two, but once you're up, you're flying! What area are you in? If you're near a major city, there's probably a suspension group you could talk to. 5d
  •   dat_taz_girl Yea, NY, the guy who split my tongue does suspensions..but I refuse to leave the house until this snow crap stops lol soon tho! ^_^ 5d
  •   elenadee @dat_taz_girl good plan!! Winter needs to END. How was getting your tongue split? I keep thinking I want to do it, but pictures of it being done freak me out. 5d
  •   dat_taz_girl I was nervous as fuckkkk..but honestly, in a weird way, it felt amazing, feeling the initial separation was nice, almost relieving! The 2 weeks fallowing wit no sold food n pain was alil tuff, but worth it! &&& Fuck winter lol 5d

elenadee Blue-grey #wool I blended spun on the @hipstrings #supportspindle I got at this years Indie Knit and Spin. It's my second spindle from them and I love it just as much as the first. They're lightweight, gorgeous, and based in Pittsburgh. #handspinning #handspunyarn #blendingboard #hipstrings 1mon
