Hey! Welcome, thank you for coming. I hope I can entertain or motivate you while you're here. I'd like to thank everyone for their kind comments and concern for LittleDog. He is back to his sassy self these days, bullying Sam and spending inordinate amounts of time sleeping, preferably for him, while weighing down my lap.
Much to LittleDog's dismay I've been busy spinning this week. Much of it done away from home. I'll bet that Viv never travelled so much in her life. She's certainly living up to her model name - Ashford Traveller.
Counting Sheep Farm, Romney/Soysilk & BFL/Soysilk approx. 4 oz - 84 yds
Sunday I spent a few hours hanging with the Grand River Spinners at Biggby on the E Beltline. We've gotten into the habit of taking over the second floor for most of the afternoon a couple of Sundays a month. The group is steadily growing and becoming more fun each week. I finished spinning the very pretty alpaca batt that I got from Andrea at WonderWhy Alpaca's. It is such a pretty blue, makes me think of faded jeans, like we used to wear back in the 70s, when faded jeans were actually faded from wear and washing instead of chemical treatment. The color wore to a soft pale blue, not the icky yellowish color you see on jeans today.
2 oz Via Verde Farm, Sunset alpaca

Wednesday night I met a few friends (Hey Rita, Heather, Susan, Sarah, SallyJo, Kelly, Gloria, Devon and a couple of ladies I didn't know and can't remember their names, sorry) at Yarn Hollow studio for some spinning, knitting and fiber petting. I may have made a little purchase or 4...
I should be able to make it to the Fiber Fiesta now without the need to buy any more fiber...uh, nevermind that I'm going to the Spinners Flock sale on the 19th...I'm just going to look...yeah, that's it! Just lookin.
I've also managed to add a few rows to the sleeves of the Big Ass Sweater...
Have a great week. Have some fibery fun. Go check out what the other participants in Fiber Arts Friday have been doing too.
