We finally made it camping this weekend. I have been antsy all week, waiting to pack up and spend some time relaxing. I didn’t get to spin as much as I wanted but I did find the excuse to drink a couple of these:

The First Day of Fall

6 Cups apple cider                              1/2 tsp. nutmeg

4 cinnamon sticks                            6 cloves

4 Tbsp. brown Sugar                           1 1/2 C apple brandy

Mix the cider, brown sugar and spices over medium heat for 10 minutes add apple brandy and strain into mugs. Enjoy in front of a bonfire, preferably with your favorite yarn…

Cocoon

My life has been pretty frazzled as of late. I needed to spin something that relaxed my shoulders, something that would remind me to step back and take a breath. I made Cocoon, a butter soft blend of hand dyed wool and honey colored silk. I love this yarn, just stroking it is soothing.
