I have a cheatin’ heart. Last night I couldn’t take it anymore. I had had it with Lilly. All she wants is my undivided attention. It’s been a year since I began my relationship with her and more than 2 months since we’ve been exclusive. I don’t think I can be tied down to just one, ah, yarn project.

So I made this. This yarn was spun by Bette. She doesn’t knit very often so I brought it home on Wednesday and swatched and knitted this up last night. 4 hours including the swatching. It’s a Patons pattern. I think it’s called Aviator’s Hat. I added the color stripes because she gave me three shades of yarn. They are all natural colors and from her Shetland sheep. It;’s kind of cute and very warm for those winter days when you have to go out and fix the fence.

It was just a one night stand I promise.

Today was Spinner’s Flock. I’ve been wanting to go all summer and all summer something else has come up. Today I was going no matter what. I like to go and see what everyone is working on and just have some quiet time for spinning or knitting myself.


I finished spinning this Wensleydale. The wool on the bobbin was spun about 2 weeks ago so I just wanted to finish up the little bit of roving I had left.
I seem to always naturally spin a thinner yarn and have to really concentrate to get anything thicker. This singles is about 44 wraps per inch. I want to knit a little doily with it. I’m not sure how many yards I have but I know I started with about 2 ounces.
Here’s my dilemma. I want to knit this as a singles yarn. I want to soak it and set the twist. I have been told that the best way to do that is on a plastic Niddy just soak the whole thing and let it dry like that. I don’t have a plastic niddy. Anybody have any other suggestions?

Now onto some crazy stuff. This is my brother. We call him Lee. This is a frightening picture of him but he’s kind of a lunatic.

Not to be outdone by his sisters he made a blog today which he titled ME. His subtitle says “Do not expect to see your name or any reference to you in my ME blog.”

I don’t expect him to post again – ever. He just likes to harass me. Drop by and ask him to stop posting scary pictures on his blog.

Are you ready for Beth’s very first line of skirts coming in late June?
