The Spider’s-web shawl Brooke made from my yarn!

Every once in a while I come across an incredible project someone makes with yarn I dyed or spun.

1. Brooke has made a gorgeous Spider's web shawl.
Images are on her blog!

2. Fuego Socks by The Soapy Knitter. She made these from the "Ablaze" colorway.

I'm so honored :)

You control climate change.

The Climate Change Colloquium (or CCC) is currently working on ideas in the realm of transportation & building environments through which it believes that people - not just regulatory bodies - will truly be able to control climate change. Members of the CCC are ordinary people from various walks of life who beleive that they have something positive & pragmatic to contribute to address climate change. They welcome your valuable comments and input.

The ideas currently on the boards are both practical & very marketable due their fungibility. They are in simple terms - “grafts” on existing technologies. We believe that resources already exist through which these ideas could be implemented in a short period of time should the appropriate individuals or organizations take them on.

Please visit the CCC at to view the latest concepts on the boards.
