Title? What title?

You wouldn't believe my darn camera. Yeah, I know where it is, it's in time out! Bad camera! I do love it, it's a good camera (most of the time), but it has one awful design feature, the batteries go in the same place as the memory card. Since I take the card out and put it back a lot, the door has worn out, and doesn't shut all of the way, so the batteries don't make a full connection, and it won't stay on. Even duct tape is ceasing to help. So, these pics might look crappy, cuz they are from my old camera. Time for another new camera? Ugh!
But, being the good blogger that I am, I promised to take some pictures of my spinning. Every one's clamoring, you know.
Actually only one person asked to see some of my spinning pictures, but a girl can dream. hehe
Let's see, I have clogs, and yarn for more clogs in a couple of those pics. These babies come out huge, I can't wait to felt them, but I have two or three, and a half more pairs to knit. I might make some for LD with the Paton's that I hand-dyed. It's in the pic with little sheepie pins on the balls. There's my hand spun, too. Seven balls of stuff, two spindles with the colorful wool in the works, and one cd spindle with some wool for a sample for my spinning class that's coming up. LD's teacher ordered wool from Amy, and sent me home with a chunk of it.
So, who thinks my sick kid will let me go check out my bloglines? Hah, I don't think so. LD is home again with a sore throat, sounding all croupy. She was home yesterday, and I'm missing knitting with the girls this morning. Hope you guys are having fun, Mel, and Carrie! She seems well enough to yell "Mom, come here!" every five minutes. I guess it's going around her school, though. At least it's not strep, or something worse. I actually had to interrupt that sentence to go turn a cd on for her. Ahhh ~ the joys of motherhood.
I guess I'll go read some more of the chapter book we're on, and knit clogs, and hopefully get Little Sickie to take a nap, so I can go read some blogs. Sure! Wish me luck and knit-on, all!!!

Great handspun! How are those cd spindles to spin on?

Sorry you missed it =( Knitting was really fun, and there was some pretty good birthday cake to be had, too. At least you're making good use of your mom time by blogging! =) I'm drooling for your clog pattern. I should have gotten it a year ago, then it would have been in my stash right now! Got a great pattern from Mel, though, that I'm going to go cast on for.... Hope she feels better for the weekend!

Nothing like nursing the sick. But she can't possibly be as bad as the husbands are, LOL.

Great handspun! I had my first lesson last weekend and I'm afraid of being sucked in...... It's probably unavoidable, tho!

Everyone is sick at my workplace, I'm trying to keep the hell away from them! The clogs are awesome aren't they? Really cool pattern.

Ar, your spun yarn is very beautiful. I love the way the colors are blended.
