feeling a bit sheepish

the wooly-brained ramblings of a knitter and novice spinner... it may be 'a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing'...but it's mine ;-)

happy crickets :-)


or "the experiment was a success" ;-)

people came and commented (thanks so much susie for the link sending folks over from your blog!):



ye olde random number generator was fired up:



and winning numbers were generated:



michelle gets first choice of the yarns in the previous post, and the second skein goes to denise...check your e-mailboxes :-) congrats to both of you!

thank you all so much for taking the time to read and comment...you were clever and funny and sweet and definitely had me smiling all weekend...and the crickets loved the company ;-) i've added all those i could to my bloglines list and i've got loads of reading to do...and despite my tendency to lurk, i'll try to remember how nice it is to have someone comment...

in other news...
Le Tour de Fleece update, day 2 & 3:
i finished spinning the second half of the roving sunday while watching Gone With The Wind (much easier during than saturday's movie lol)...no pictures since i figured it looked pretty much identical to the previous half (big surprise lol) i plied it monday, but wanted to wait til i washed it before getting a picture. i'm pretty well pleased with it, though i haven't done much plying on spindles. i'm also pleased that i have actually managed to get at least a little spinning done each day so far...and that it's getting easier to work that time in...now if i can just transfer that to the wheel i may start making a dent in my fiber stash ;-)

hope everyone had a safe enjoyable holiday weekend...happy canada day (late) to those of you 'across the river' (would have loved to have been at the freedom festival), and happy fourth to those here in the states...if you'd like to make a few fireworks of your own, here are a couple fun sites.

    Hey there... this is a very very belated "thank you" for the Sockapalooza socks, which arrived safely and have been much admired. The yarn is gorgeous and a great choice, and I'm in awe of your even tension and heels! I've posted pics and a public thank you in my blog today. Sorry it's taken me so long, but (as you may have gathered from reading my blog), life's been somewhat chaotic still.
