Happy September!

I had been taking a break from blogging, etc for the last couple of months, and wanted to add an entry so that no one thinks I was abducted by aliens.

What I've been doing in the meantime...hoarding fiber, of course.  I can't seem to stop buying alpaca and just ordered a pound of Yakkity Yak down.  I'm on a mission to create really fun gifts for my peeps in time for the December holidays and would really like to spin up and knit a few Yak hats for special someones.

I *still* have to sit down and upload stuff to my Ravelry account, but I don't have the patience for it right now.  I LOVE Ravelry, I just am not in the frame of mind to conquer it at the moment.

I did manage to purchase some KnitPicks Options needles and I am absolutely in LOVE with them!!!!

In the past week I have spun combed cotton (an absolute NIGHTMARE!), flax, Suri alpca, silk caps (I usually spin Tussah top),  and raw cotton off of actual cotton seeds.  It was for part of an advanced spinning class I was taking and am thrilled that I got a chance to spin fibers that I usually do not spin.

Dyeing on the calender for next week, so maybe I can actually update my shop.  lol!
