Another view! Posted by Hello

Look at the yummy yarns that have been spun this week!!!! Don't you just love them? I can't wait to knit SOMETHING with this!!!! Posted by Hello

This is as far as I've gotten on the snowdrop shawl. Only about 5 more inches before I start the edge!!! Yeah!!! Posted by Hello

What a week so far. My very good friend just got out of the hospital from having her colon removed. I am very worried about her, her incision split open, and she is a widow with no one to care for her. I think I'll have to check her out a couple times a day. Anyway, I'm just glad that she's home.
I've been spinning alot this week, (will post just finished stuff). We had group yesterday, and no one showed! Bummer!! But usually in the summer that's what happens because everyone is gone for the summer. But, we're not going to be daunted. Anyway, I'm still spinning!!!! Happy spinning week to everyone.

Here is evergreen on the wheel, I don't know what I'm going to do with this. But it's soooo pretty! Happy spinning. Posted by Hello

kinda of hard to see, but here is another 300 yds. of singles for the Feather and Fan. One more is hanging for the twist to set. I'll be starting it soon!!! Posted by Hello

Here is the Snowdrop shawl. Progressing nicely. This is about all I've been able to do since I've had a migraine all week. Almost ready to start the border!!! Posted by Hello

Tuesday I "threw" a pool party for the kids. I had 15 teenagers here!! Then 12 spent the night!! Well, now I'm paying for it. I have had a borderline migraine for the last two days. So, no post. But when I can see straight, I'll be back!!! Haven't even had a chance to spin, can you believe that? I don't want to mess around with what I've got on the bobbin right now though, it's for the Feather and Fan shawl, and it has to be perfect. Posting soon....

And here's the graduate, Karl!! Posted by Hello

some kool-aide dyed singles that are waiting patiently to be knitted into a beautiful shawl. Now I need some ideas. (hint, hint) Posted by Hello

Isabelle (at a graduation party), she's just waiting her turn for the dance floor. Posted by Hello

Not a great picture, but you get the idea. This is the snowdrop shawl. I finally stopped spinning long enough to do some more. I'll probably knit for the rest of the evening. What a wonderful end to a wonderful day! Posted by Hello

Here is the first 302 yds. of singles for the Feather and Fand shawl. Twist set, isn't the color pretty? Just about 1500 more yrds to go. Posted by Hello

My spinning teacher thought that since I was a beginner that she would enter some of my first handspun into the contest for novices at the Greencastle Fiber Arts Festival in Indiana. I was delighted to find out that I placed third with this 2-ply, kool-aid dyed cotswold. I was so shocked!!! But happy. This has prompted me to keep on spinning happily! This is now my 9th month, and I think I'll be spinning forever. Posted by Hello

Here's George posing with the kool-aid dyed cotswold wool. Isn't he cute? (he's the 3rd child) Posted by Hello

This is Cormo/blend, I love this color is forest, and it's from Paradise Fibers. This is about 2 days of spinning, and worth every minute!! Posted by Hello

Merino/blend on the wheel!! It's like silk. I'm needing to spin about 2000 yds. for the Feather and Fan Shawl in GOL. Posted by Hello

And the matching hat. Posted by Hello

She will just fit this Dale of Norway cardi and matching hat when she's one. Can't wait to see her in it.  Posted by Hello

Couldn't resist. My wonderful sister, and the sweetest baby in the world, my niece Isabelle. Isn't she a doll? I've gotten her ready for the winter with this one. Posted by Hello

"We're waiting!!!!" I spun this up about 2 months ago, waiting to be knit into a wonderful fair isle. We'll see. May change my mind yet. Posted by Hello

Eva looks fabulous in the Scandanavian Vest. It fits her like I made it for her!! The pattern is from Sheial MacGregors book of Scandanavian Knitting. Wonderful, beatiful patterns. Posted by Hello

here's Bonnie in her Peddler's Shawl. She deserves it!!! She has the best massage hands around!!! Thanks Bonnie! Posted by Hello

Back to the grind stone. I have some major spinning to do today. Talk more later! Happy knitting, and spinning all.

Look what I stayed up until 1:00a.m. spinning!!!!!! Couldn't help myself. Isn't it yummy? Posted by Hello

The full view!  Posted by Hello
