covid/social distancing, just mention
hej dears, i think i can stomach the fediverse again. so hi! :)
fortunately my live doesn't need to change too much bc of covid.
i have a job, that i can still do, and i live with enough people in my household to not be lonely.
i can still go to my #garden, where flowers are happening and even some frogs seem to have moved in. that's incredibly good for my otherwise stressed mind.
also I'm #knitting lace again.
i missed you!
violets are blooming in northern Germany! and spreading their gorgeous smell!
sorry friends and fediverse, in case you're missing my favs and small comments: i had to and will have to stay off social media for a while. it's too intense for me right now :/

good morning (well late morning) #theWeirderEarthBikeNerds 😊
thanks for the nice conversation yesterday and this morning!
weirder earth bike club!
I'm not commuting by bike right now, but I'm still using it fairly often for transportation. this evening i went home from my choir practice by bike above a small bridge that i really like. the moon was shining super bright behind some pretty clouds and i liked it a lot!

i got the garden this spring. so it's still very new to me. we're still getting to know each other!
today is also a first in trying out the deck chair as it is too warm to do any garden work. i carried it into the deepest shade i could find. sadly i didn't bring my book, but its still very enjoyable!
@jules, weil du fragtest: es ist super! fluffig, weich, geschmeidig, aber trotzdem wirkt es zumindest auf den ersten Metern nicht so langweilig wie Merino oder das Neuseeland Lamm. etwas griffiger irgendwie :3 ich find's erstmal super!
back from my holidays! which is a sad thing, but I'm glad to be reunited with the working spinning wheel in my home! <3
I'm not doing daily but I'm very much still going! i had so much fun to finish #spinning the rolags by spindle! now they are wound into a plying ball waiting for the ply!
see Image descriptions for details!

#TourdeFleece yess, the second part of the top is on the bobbin! in just two settings! i split the top lenghtwise and im going to ply them parallel. I'm really looking forward to plying and the finished yarn! i love colour changes!
the #spinning was rather uneventful, but that was exactly the right thing after a full and exciting day at work! time for the mind to wander. still i keep thinking i should have made single yarn out of this fibre! but well...
i haven't had #spinning or #fibrearts mojo now in weeks, almost months! but today starts the tour de fleece and i actually spun! thanks partly to you all sharing your lovely pictures!
i picked up my wips: a spindle project super thin from silky rolags that @jules made, and a wheel project a bit thicker handdyed top from also @jules :D
and: it's still fun! and the new fibre looks tempting too!!
knitting, squirrel, enby.
