Forgive me, but I really have no motivation this week to do a podcast. I have been in and out of feeling ickky and sleepy, and in my free time I pass out!
But I really really really want to show you some things I have been working on!
Steve got his socks this weekend, and turns out I could have made them much longer! But he was really happy with them, and wore them every night I was there! I made him wear slippers so his icky carpet wouldnt dirty them, but he seemed to love them, so I am happy!
Kitty was not so fond of the socks though....
Now I was working on some fiber from Sunset Fibers Roving of the month club. 4 ounces of merino wool that was just absolutely awesome to work with! I was able to get a whopping 489 yards with it, and I am very happy with the results.
So I went over to the YS this past weekend and the owner Jeanette had the wheel set up already, and showed me how to spin with some scrap fiber.
Once I got home and Steve got out of the hospital... (long story) I started spinning some 100% wool that I purchased when I got the wheel. I was able to finish it in 2 days, and I love the result.
That is all I have for today, I do have some In progress items I am knitting, but the light is just not right in my apartment and will not do it justice. Until next time!

- I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!
