Prompted by Barbara's comment on this post, I thought I'd put together a list of yarn dyers/sellers I've used whose products I like. If I've already knitted something with the yarn in question I'll link to the post or Ravelry project page, if not it means the skein is still in the drawer awaiting its turn on the needles. Some of the following may be familiar to you, some perhaps less so, but I hope you'll find a source of good things among them.
It's been a while since I did any embroidery or sewing and I want to get back to it, but knitting and needlepoint in the shape of works-in-progress and others which are 'needle adjacent' seem always to take precedence.
And then there's Janet Clare, another recent discovery, whose book The Wordsmith appeals, but I fear it would be folly to embark on yet another thing.
In view of the above, I'm interested to hear from the 'multi-craftual' among you: how do you fit it all in? Do you work on only one project at a time, from start to finish? Do you devote certain days (or seasons) to one craft over another? Do you do a little of everything so that there is some progress across all your work all the time? Do you just knit or stitch or sew as the mood takes you, without feeling overwhelmed, or that you're neglecting what's not in hand at that moment? Are you disciplined about not buying the supplies for a new project until you are free of other work and ready to start it?
I suspect Mme. Fontaine here was faithful to her embroidery - she certainly seems to display an appealing level of serenity and absorption in her work.
