I've been doing some spinning as you can see. The pic isn't very good, but you can get the gist of it... I love these colors..

This is handspun sock yarn that I'm spinning for Yellowdog Knitting Shop. This is a sample that I've spun up of superwash and dyed (green of course). Knitting on size 1 dpns and using Tidal Wave pattern, but done toe up! I hope to be done with these by next week!
The second pic is of my new obsession! I've been spindling in my spare time. The small featherweight Bosworth has merino/tencel, and I've only got about and ounce of that. I'm spinning it lace weight for a scarf or something. The right one is a Greensleeves featherweight that I got at the spinning retreat in February. I'm spinning laceweight merino that I dyed a while ago! I've got about 3.5 ounces of this to get spun up. In my spare time! I'm doing many other things right now including a typing job. So we'll see what get's done!

Here we are at a friend's wedding this last weekend. That my hubby and me having some awfully good chicken for a wedding... gorgeous girl and dress and good looking couple.
And so far, I've tried this again with blogger and I've only been able to post one picture correctly. I'm getting a little aggrivated here....

I'm done with blogger... I just decided all of a sudden. Here is the new link to my new site
Come on over and visit!
I so far can only figure out that this "google" thing is a pain in the butt. I can't post any pictures, and it's been a nightmare with my AT&T account! Changing all of my computer information and everything! Just so that I can post a blog? What is going on? I may not be blogging through Blogger anymore if I can't get this thing figured out. Sorry....

Since I've been having problems with my hands and elbows and wrists, I've been mainly knitting lace. This is the lace stole that I've been knitting from the spindle spun silk hankies and the shetland/icelandic blend. And dyed up, and here is the result. The chart is from Barbara Walker's book of patterns and charts (blue cover). And I've found a very pretty border to knit onto it. I've got about another 3 - 5 inches left to go, maybe more, and then I'll knit on the border. I'm also still spindling the silk hankies just in case I need more. Fortunately, I know the dye recipe to get this wonderful color again and again....
