Obviously bookworming is genetic.
Anne posted about her recent reading material and sucked me into the Ann Cleeves Shetland mysteries.
I fell into the Cleeves rabbit hole and have been making my way through her other mystery series. Right now I am immersed in the George and Molly Palmer-Jone series. The info about birds, birdwatchers, bird lists, bird expeditions is lots of fun.
I have Robert MacFarlane's Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places and the Old Ways close at hand thanks to Mary's recommendation.
Of course the latest John Sandford Fields of Prey has been digested.
I have Shetland fleeces either in hand or in the mail. And a new maple Pocket Wheel to play with. I ordered the pocket wheel last summer and worried that the design would not work well with my knees. It's doing great! The big wheel between the treadles seems to put my knees at a different angle (much like the Kromski Symphony does) so I am happily spinning the roving stash down. The HC e-spinner is a marvel at plying and the bobbins are big enough that I am going to try to spin 4 lbs of white Shetland roving to fill the bobbins (I have 6) before I ply them. I guess that means we'll find out how much 5 bobbins will hold... need to leave 6th for plying.
Now to find a big enough carry bag for the pocket wheel.
Believe it or not - all the local rain and my gardens are dry!! Yet, less than a mile from me the Cache La Poudre River is flooding.
Please keep my Shetland Sheepdog Riley in your thoughts - recently the groomer found 2 lumps during his summer haircut (he looks like a Suluki now) and tomorrow we'll find out what the vet thinks. Riles turned 9 on the 13th...
Note: got into the vet yesterday, 2 fatty tumors (the scary one is in his groin - about the size of a tennis ball! It was hidden under all that fur) and 1 grape sized cancer (that's on his hip). He has surgery the 10th. Won't be spending much at Estes Park Wool Market but will have my walking dog set to go for summer by July.
