Do you still remember me?

I know! It's been a while. But we are all fixed up now! I figure I have a lot to talk about with my month off right? Well, I do, but I can't show it all.

I have been doing a lot of spinning. Some of it is secret spinning which will be revealed soon. I have spun up the prize I won way back when. It was from the dye-o-rama swap. You may remember it looking like this

Well now it looks like this

And then it ended up like this

Wow!! Huh? I of course, don't know the yardage off the top of my head, but I think I have enough to make a hat. Pretty pretty.

Okay, onto the next picture of fibery goodness.......

Then it became this

The bobbin picture is more accurate for color. Now what to make with it.........

I promise that I will be posting more frequently in October. The computer set back was a big pain in the ass.

Shawl update:
NOT DONE! HA! But I am almost there! Hopefully I will have a picture soon.

Come back now, ya hear?

I'm so happy to see your post! I've been thinking about you and your shawl (which I know is in timeout right now)- the spinning looks lovely.
