Shutterbug Times

My Photo
Location: Boulder, Colorado, United States

I started out adult life as a documentary photographer and ended up as an executive assistant.

Anya looks better than anyone else I know while displaying my first wearable homespun items. The hat was felted in an attempt to conceal some of the more rustic "features" of my work, while the scarf was left to forthrightly show my beginning spinner's skills.

Anya insists that I take her picture anytime I show up with the camera!


Homespun Hat & Scarf

This is my rudimentary attempt to create wearable items from homespun yarn. All new spinners should take heart from these humble items! Posted by Picasa

This is Jim's kitty, Oreo, sitting in the January sunlight. Oreo misses Jim, too.  Posted by Picasa

I am spinning and knitting to find relief from Jim's inevitable declining condition. I never knew any activity could bring such distraction. Although there is no way to handle his downslide with grace and total acceptance, I find that losing myself in pursuit of creative projects soothes the open wound and gives me patience. I have placed below a photo of my "stash bag", knit from my own homespun yarn using large needles and my own design. Posted by Picasa
