Question from KYspinner, “Hello ladies,

My spinning/knitting/weaving group is planning a stash swap and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to set it up. We have thrown out a few ideas at this point, but since there could be fiber, yarn, cones etc, we have not come up with a way to say -you brought 2 100 gr skeins and 4 oz of fiber to trade, so you can take xxx amt of new stash .. help – anyone?”

Leslie is listening to Voyager and is reading The Never Hero. She also read an 18+ M/m series by Ella Frank that starts with Try.

Laura is listening to First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones.  She is reading Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher.  She finished Moonpenny Island by Tricia Springstubb, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong, and How the War Saved my Life.
