Swiftly, turning

My yarn swift doing its thing.
One of the greater pleasures of knitting is its unchanging technology. Needles, yarn, an umbrella swift (admittedly new-fangled, harking back to the 18th century), hands--essentially unaltered over time.

Next week is the autumn equinox.

Roving, hand-dyed by Neuroknitter, recently appeared in the garden.

As did this strange fruit.  Correctly identify it before September 22nd, and I'll send you my personal copy of  Woolly Thoughts:  How to Unlock Your Creative Genius, by Pat Ashforth and Steve Plummer.


  1. Those look like purple potatoes to me!

  2. Good guess, but alas, no. Try again?

  3. You are absolutely correct. We have two pawpaw trees in our garden. Please contact me through the email button on my Profile, give me your mailing address, and I will send you the book. Congratulations! How did you know?
