In addition to organizing two Men’s Fiber Retreats and various other activities, it looks like I had a very productive year.

Here’s my first latte of 2023.

Hopefully a harbinger of good and beautiful things for the rest of the year.

Current Spinning/Knitting

Included in the totals for 2022 is a total of 460 (421 meters) yards of Jacob handspun yarn.

It ended up being a total of 6.8 ounces (193 grams) of yarn, which equates to about 1082 yards per pound…which makes it about a DK weight yarn. After it dries, I’ll measure the “wraps per inch” to confirm DK weight. Can’t wait to knit something with this yarn.

I also started a new baby blanket.

This is the OpArt Blanket by Melissa Dominguez. I’m doing it in a worsted weight yarn and I’m liking it pretty well so far.

  1. Great recap and always good to see and hear about what you are working on. I look forward to checking out some of the blogs which I haven’t seen before.
    And I’ve never heard of incense matches!
    The OpArt Blanket looks fantastic. I must check out the link.
    Best wishes for 2023 and all your fiber adventures!
