I’m reposting this from @womensmarchyouth because I remember what it was like to be able to go to school with no fear of being shot to death, and I want today’s children to know that same feeling. (I graduated a couple of years before the Columbine shooting happened, but from a neighboring school. Friends of mine went there.) I also remember participating in school walkouts when I was in high school in Berkeley, and this is absolutely something I would have participated in with my parents’ full support. Youth voices are powerful, and we need to amplify and empower them, so standing in #solidarity with them is the absolute least we can do. So anyway, if you have kids, are a teacher, or have young people in your life, please spread the message and encourage kids to participate. We need to support those who are actually trying to effect change for those who are in the literal line of fire, as it’s clear our politicians won’t do anything until we can drown out the gun lobby.

My #fibreshare package from Kennedy @knitworthy is EPIC! Six custom blended batts, alpaca fluff, tea for natural dye, dried lavender, sparkly beads for practicing core spinning, and a novel called “The Book of Memory”... I am just blown away. The batts are so gorgeous and squishy and Kennedy even made one for me based off of one of my watercolor paintings! I’m so touched that she found inspiration in something I painted, and clearly went to some lengths to commission a couple of jewel-tone batts for me from @mo_coyotes_made . I feel so special. THANK YOU, Kennedy! .
I am really looking forward to reading this book! It’s about an albino woman in a max security prison in Zimbabwe and how she ended up there. In college I concentrated my lit degree in non-Western literature, and so this book is also a pleasant reminder of those days. I really enjoyed that part of my life!
I also included a pic of the look on Frida’s face as she was begging for the bubble wrap. Ten seconds after this photo she had completely destroyed it... 🤣
Oh, and the last pic is a collage to show how MASSIVE the package was! That’s a good sized aero-style office chair it’s sitting in! 😳🤯🙂☺️😊😁

The watercolor background and major shapes were born last night, and this morning I got to add the details in ink (my favorite part)! It’s so much easier to listen to people talk when my eyes and hands are engaged...

Pink clouds became pink snail shells! Blend of Cheviot, multicolored silk threads (not sure what the official name for that is), and undyed soy silk. All from @quillinfiberarts ! These were so fun to make. I just love rolags!

@thereadingknitter and @knitworthy both tagged me to do an introduction! My name is Yoli (short for Yolanda), and I am not, in fact, a cat. But I do have five of them! Leela, the first pictured, is the newest. I also have a dog and a husband and I live in Las Cruces, NM. While half of my family is from here (our roots are from back before the Spanish colonized this area), I grew up in the Bay Area of California. I’ve lived in many places all over the country, but the West Coast and the Pacific Ocean will always have my heart. ❤️ 🌊 ❤️ I’m a technical writer, which means I write documentation for hardware and software. I’m guessing in the course of my career I’ve written over a hundred manuals from scratch! 💪 But I’ve never published anything that has my name on the cover, so that’s something I’d like to do someday. Although if you ever bought a Palm phone or a Plantronics headset there’s a good chance you’ve held something I wrote (and prolly threw straight into the recycle bin, but I won’t hold that against you)! My favorite job ever was for NASA writing about satellite hardware and imagery.
My hobbies include painting, drawing, reading, knitting, crocheting, weaving, and spinning. Most of what I make is for me, but I end up giving a lot of things away to friends and family. My husband also has a substantial woodworking shop so I occasionally dabble in those arts, too!
I am politically very liberal (as you can probably guess from some of my posts), having been raised in union halls and social justice movements, but what I’d really like to see is people all across the political spectrum being more respectful and kind to people they don’t necessarily agree with. I think politics has gotten really ugly in the past decade, and we’re reaping the fruits of that bitter divide. So one of the things I love most about the fiber community is how positive it is and how there’s space here for you no matter your leanings. I’ve met so many wonderful people because of our shared love for fiber and making. You all are awesome!

Anyway, there’s lots more layers to me (I’m like an onion that way) but this has surely gone on long enough! Nice to meet you, and thanks for reading!

I made a thing 😬

This is the first weaving I made where I started out with a pretty clear mental picture of how I wanted it to look, and I managed to make it happen! I even had everything in my stash already, which is a miracle all on its own! Some of this yarn dates back to when I first started growing my stash more than a dozen years ago.

My favorite bit is how the light shines through spaces in the warp. ❤️ I hope you like it!

My first art yarn with curly mohair locks! It was an adventure to spin (as @zouweeza @quillinfiberarts @janetzplanit can attest) but it came out lovely! It reminds me of 7-Up 🤓 and it’s so bright and cheerful. 25ish yards!

My grandma Betty gave me these books* when I was in middle school, during a time in my life when I was lonely and had no close friends. That was my grandma tho: there was no problem that couldn’t be solved with a book (or a whole bag of them). 📔📒📚📓📘📗📕📙📖 You have probably also guessed by this point that she was a librarian, and you’d be correct. She was more that, though. She showed me that women were powerful and strong, even in their darkest moments, and that words MATTER, so choose them carefully. 🖋📝 She died in 2001 after a very full, beautiful, challenging life. I was not present, but I found out in enough time to mail (!) her a letter telling her how much I loved her and how thankful I was for her love and attention. I am so grateful to her for sending me into the world with as many books as I could drag around. I have several of her belongings, and the other two pics are of the most precious: the worry dolls she carried and then gave to me to hold mine, a necklace in her favorite colors and gems, her AA tokens so that I never forget that your demons don’t always win, and the letter I mentioned above.
Today I found out that Ursula K LeGuin died. She was 88. These two women had a profound impact on my life and with Mrs. LeGuin’s death I feel partially as though I am losing another piece of my grandma, but also in awe at what women can achieve and the impacts they can make, even when the world keeps telling you to sit down and desist. Nevertheless, they persisted, and I am so grateful that they did. Rest In Peace, Mrs. LeGuin. Say hi to my grandma for me. 🖤 *the first book is actually a replacement because I unwisely lent it to a boy in middle school who I was hoping would be a friend. Luckily I managed to find a copy from the same printing, so I have a full set again!

Watercolors, my favorite coloring book, music, and contemplation. I had an intense day so I am being gentle with myself, and coloring / painting is so soothing. Even if it’s just for a little while, it gives my brain space to think about stuff and my hands are busy so it’s easier to focus. I am so, so grateful that adult coloring books are a common thing now! Sometimes I don’t want to draw or invent, you know? The color and paint is the point tonight. 🤓

I don’t usually post pics of my meals anymore...I think because I lost my deep love for cooking and eating food for a while. Depression is a right bitch. But tonight I got my mojo back! I am really proud of myself and this was a DELICIOUS reward for all the progress I’ve made with my mental health in the past couple of weeks! ••• four cheese pierogis with a homemade lemon picatta sauce and Parmesan sprinkled on top. Paired with fried chicken patties with crumbled fried fresh sage. ••• Sorta three different cuisines going on here but 🤫🤷‍♀️ it was amazing! ••• So who’s hungry? I have leftovers!! I sooooorta cooked all of this for myself... 👩‍🍳👅😋

Seriously fuck this dude and anyone who agrees with him. He’s a national embarrassment and a terrible person. If he can’t say anything nice about a place or a people, HE NEEDS TO SHUT HIS DAMN MOUTH. And then pack his bags and go back to his garish homes (or prison!) and leave public life. •••
My doctor is an African immigrant. My family and friends and neighbors are people of color. My coworkers are immigrants and people of color. My experiences in foreign places have all been genuinely kind and rewarding and beautiful because the truth is that people of EVERY COLOR AND NATIONALITY are just that. People. Deserving of respect and kindness. This is real basic stuff, people. It ain’t hard. •••

I finished my Just For You 4 (now on Ravelry as the Retrospective cowl) by Laura Aylor ( @lauraaylor ) of Fogbound Knits. It needs a bath still, but w/e! 🤷‍♀️ Laura releases a mystery KAL every winter that takes place over the 12-days before Xmas. I was too busy to cast on before Xmas, but I did manage to cast on Xmas evening and I finished it today. I love it so much! Slip stitch colorwork makes me look like a much more accomplished knitter than I really am... 😂 ••• yarn is @malabrigoyarn Rastita in the Jupiter color, and @quillinfiberarts Merino Sportweight singles in an unnamed color that I think looks like sea glass. Both were from stash! 💪🤘••• #knitting #knit #knittersofinstagram #handmade #yarn #yarnporn #malabrigo #quillinfiberarts #quillinfiberartspeeps #cowl #bandana #mystery #mkal

My favorite things tonight: the color of the beets in the roasted root veggies for dinner, this fire in the fireplace, and Puzzie wondering what he did in a previous life to be forced to wear antlers...

Looks like Puzzie has turned into a lizard! It’s soooo hot right there from the fire coals, but I’m considering adding more wood and bringing it back to a blaze so he can be warm longer. And opening some windows because OMG SO HOT 😝😻 🔥 🐈 (I’ve been wearing my Crazy Cat Lady badge for years now, no effs given!)
