The good, the bad, and the knotted


Sometimes, you just gotta go back to basics. . Like the batch of chocolate chip and walnut cookies I baked for church this week. Simple, comforting and oh, so delicious!. I watched "Stranger than Fiction" again yesterday and, well, it makes me want chocolate chip cookies. Especially ones that are just a little undercooked. Mmmmmm.

On a completely unrelated topic(I couldn't figure out a segue any less abrupt) This is my first attempt at plying my now passable singles. It's supposed to be one strand, but, erm, well, i plied a strand that was spun to the left with a strand that was spun to the right, so instead of twisting together and making yarn, they twisted against each other and back onto themselves, forming, in effect, a giant knot. Which is okay. I'll chalk it all up to the learning process :-)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I believe there are some cookies calling my name.....

But it is a hand-spun, hand plied knot. That makes it pretty fancy.
Hey. Here's a great "side-track" for you. But definitely a possible use for lovely hand made knots. Look at this "first-time-felter's" product.

Bet you could do that kind of stuff. I'm afraid I'm going to try it. Got a book at the library and you probably know what that means. I can't stick to one thing to save my life.
