Hello & Welcome
to myย 4thย episode of the

KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is a mix of fresh snow,
snuggled with a splinter of drop spindling.

What a difference a day or two… or even an hour or two… can make!ย 

Around here, early to mid spring tends to be dominated by theย 4-letter word “wind” ๐Ÿ˜›ย Andย after 6 years, I’ve noticedย that the snow barely melts before the winds pick up. This year, we caught a break when the snow melted early. Now finally, the wind appears to be calming down enough to take my spinningย outside.

Tuesday was a fairly breezy day for drop spindling outside. But gosh yarn it… the day was warm and I really wanted to spin newspaper yarn in the sunshine! As well, I’d mended theย splintered stem of my wooden drop spindle. (Yup… first my iMac, then my drop spindle… What’s going to break next?!?) Andย the duct taped “fix” needed to be taken for a test spin! The duct tape worked like a charm, while a wild gust of wind whipped my spin-erfully experimental spool of video tape into a frenzied mess. And with that, my spun in the sun becameย more of an untangling mission :-/

So like any good blogger, I ran for my trusty iPad in hopes of capturing the wildness in motion. But oh well, at least I got a picture! (See first of 4 photos above).

Laterย that night, another 10-15 cms / 4-6″ snow storm roared across the region. By morning, we pushed back the flannel covers toย discover we’d been blanketed in white… again! … sigh … This first-week-in-May snow thing is getting to be a habit. It’s enough to make you wanna cuddle-up and stay cozy inside. But thenย by late afternoon, it was all melted anyway. Now the shrubs/leaves are finally budding and our currentย forecast has meย looking forward to more outdoor spinning ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hi Lisa ๐Ÿ™‚ Last fall, I clipped the tall decorative grass stalks growing in our yard. I’ve been weaving a tall basket for their display and now need to spin more newspaper yarn to complete it ๐Ÿ™‚ โ™ฅ โค
