No Spinning for YOU!!!!

Welp, today is a no spinning/knitting day for me. Since the weather is so beautiful, we decided to begin opening the pool. What a job!!!! It is filthy having sat all winter without filtration. But, oh how nice it will be all cleaned up. Even Katie Scarlet enjoyed getting in the shallow end for a little swim. I thought I'd give you a peek at the pool now and then when it is all cleaned up another shot.Also, here is the next installment on revealing my newly acquired stash of sock yarn.

Some more of the Wildfoote in Desert Grass, some of the wonderful Hand Painted Knitting Yarns in Tosca and some really pretty Rio de la Plata, 100% wool from Uruguay it has three names of colors in it, -- quartz pink - confetti - dry rose. If you know me at all you will know that am really partial to melon/coral colors. But then again, I like black, green, brown, gold.....hmm, I think I like all colors except I'm not much on pastels, but the Tofutsies are somewhat pastel. Heck, I don't know, I've confused myself!!!!!

Oh, yeah, and don't feel too awfully sorry for me, I am going to my Barnes & Noble knitting group tonight. And I did get quite a bit of knitting and spinning done yesterday. And it is supposed to rain the next several days so I'll be stuck in the house and I guess I'll just have to spin and knit. What else would I do? Housework? Nah!!!!

LOL, I asked Emma if she wanted to go swimming after showing her the pic, she said "No way, it's green!"
Ava said "Oh my gosh!" when she saw.
That's her new favorite line.

I'm gonna try to card the fiber I dyed today! I'll send you a pic when I'm finished :)

Happy knitting and spinning :o)

Enjoyed spending the last couple of weeks of blogging with you. I'm not the only granny blogging, yea!

Hmmmm, my comment, now that I read it, doesn't make sense. I read back through your blog is what I was trying to say.

I think I just sent myself a message instead of you. Duh!
Anyway, don't be intimidated by the alpaca. It's way easier to spin than wool, I think. Send me an address & I will send you some to play with.

Remember though, I will be gone this weekend.
