My mind weaves a symphony

So my mom used to spin and weave. She has a huge basket of yarn that I raided this week, and I am so excited. This is probably 1/5 of the treasure that basket holds. My nephew thought it was her wigs.. She still has her wheel and her small table loom that have been idle for some time. She has promised to teach me using the piles and piles of raw SILK she has just lying around. That is as soon as she returns from a weekend in Las Vegas seeing Bette Midler, then a week at the beach with old friends, and then a long weekend in California with us. Whose mom goes to Las Vegas, Orange Beach, and California on her fall break?? She is amazing.
For now, I am happily knitting.
