Well, it's definitely been a while since I've added anything to my blog.. and well, I'm not sure I could say it's a lot.. but here goes... ;

Pretty sure I mentioned my spinning wheel.. yay!! Still love the daylights out of it hahaha... how can you tell I love it! So much so, I ran out of my humble little stash of raw wool. In fact, I've been trying to track down some local sheep owners (any who are selling fleece)..

Spun some yarn. Learnt a few things, and in doing so, have realised I'm going to need some wool combs.. Those are a bit expensive at the moment.. but thankfully, I found a mini tutorial on how to make some. Well, I don't have the tools to make them, so I plan on convincing one of my Uncles to help me out with that. A bit of a trade really.. home made perogies and home made bread, mmmm so tasty!

Oh yes, and I started knitting a sweater for my husband. So excited to have found a pattern for "The Dude" sweater.. gotta love it really.

Here are a few pictures...

Uck... I mean OK sure, the blue and yellow/orange work OK together.. but oh did it turn out scratchy!!! And I really don't like scratchy :(

The two spools of thread to the right turned out to be singles.. Thinking of making a little something light and lacy with those.. just not sure if it should be a scarf, cowl, or shawlette.

Ooooh... a nice soft fluffy single!!! Funny thing about it.. it is really crazy close in colour blend and weight as the previous single I spun on my drop spindle.. love it!

This yarn was spun to make a little something for one of my many cousins. I just need to make a trip to the craft store for some big beads and other such do dads... Something to add a little something to it. Thinking it should be a cowl...

OK, so not that impressive yet, I kind of need to add the other photos of it for anything like that to happen yet.. I did get the back done, and had one of the front pieces done, at least until I realised I missed two rows here, didn't make certain stitches the right contrast colour there.. And well, needless to say, I had to rip it back and start over :( Aside from that though, I really really think I'm going to need to make one for myself!

Oh yeah :( I got a little carried away with my spinning wheel. Decided I wanted to add some colour to it. Why???? I have no idea...
