Wooly Pursuits

I’ve been working everyday here in the office…but mostly with my wool, dyes and other toys.  As is so often the case, luck brought a lovely woman down our driveway and before long we were enjoying a rolling conversation.  In this phase of her life, she is a photographer specializing in photographs of skilled hands…the beauty of capable hands doing things they’ve done a thousand times before.  I was flattered when she asked to take a picture of me working with the wool…here’s a bit of the day she captured:
