    Thank you for taking me with you! What gorgeous silks and knitting, and the scenery…Well, it’s no wonder you were asking me about taking some time away to become reinvigorated. It’s inspirational!

    Thanks for the great post, Jan.
    What could be better than your beautiful handspun silk paired with Hawaiian flowers?
    I could practically feel the tradewinds and smell the flowers as I read your post. Though I did find myself envying your spinning spot on the deck just a bit!

    Oh Jan, your silk spinning is absolutely inspiring. I wanted to reach right through the monitor to pet those skeins. Thanks for showing us your feathered friends and your beautiful surroundings on Molokai.
