Here is why I have done nothing but spin...


Look at that green! And here I was calling it Jabba the Hut green! It's more like "Top of the Mornin" green. But fabulous none the less.

I finished up spinning the 5 oz. of orange I had. I think I got a wee bit too tight when I plyed and spun. Ah well.


I received this as a birthday present from a coworker


Do people know me or what? She said I can put all the money I want to spend on yarn, fiber etc... in this bank. Unfortunately it is empty. I wish it was full so I could go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. But I can't (poo) I will go to Rhinebeck, oh yes. I will.

I hope lots of people spend lots of money and share pictures of all their goodies! Have a great weekend!

Gaaaawwwww! Those colors are gorgeous! That green, with the bit of yellow, couldn't be any cooler. And the twisty orange looks so fun! Nice work. envy.

That's a FANTASTIC green! I don't spin but it's amazing the difference between a pile of roving and the finished product! I would never have guessed that would turn out to be so lovely!

The green is gorgeous and the sheepie bank is just adorable. I, too, wish I had a piggy bank full of cash for fibery purchases!
