Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Hmm...could be worse. You're a weather geek who likes yarn.

I did it, too, just for fun. Interesting.

Oh, how fun! I, too, notice the weather/yarn pattern. (And I had to laugh about your comment on my blog - as much as I hate 7% humidity, I find 80% much, MUCH worse!)

I just did the same thing for the heck of it, and discovered that most of mine are travel sites, or yarn sites. The only exception were the sites I use to pay bills. :)
