I've been a lurker at this one blog for a long time. Well, I left a comment about her awesome hand spun yarn, and she emailed me. She's from Michigan, too. So, Susie asked for my mail addy and offered to send me a little prezzie. Can you believe this? Wow!! Want to see what was inside??
A spindle, and wool roving stuff, (yes I sort-of know what I'm talking about) and a super nice card. The stuff already on the spindle was not put there by me, because I have no idea what I'm doing yet. There are also instructions, and tips, and an offer to help me in person if I can't figure it out. Isn't that the nicest thing? I think so!
I am going to learn this. I've been wanting to forever. I can do it!! I taught myself to knit socks for goodness sakes! I can do this. I will do this! I'll keep ya posted, but looking at the mess I'm making so far, I think it'll be a while before I show any pictures. Hehe!
After knit class today, I took my hubby to the dentist, and there were two of my little students. My daughter gave them some of her yarn. It must have been quite a sight: Me working on a scarf, LD weaving on a loom, and the two little girls from my class finger-knitting, since they didn't have any needles with them. What fun getting a new generation fiber-addicted is!!
Well, gotta go roast marshmallows. That makes me remember: We haven't been on a bike ride in a few days. Probably should do that someday soon.
