Other than that, I did get some spinning in. I am very anxious to knit the finished project. So far it's starting to look very promising:
|The rest of what needs spun, a bag of wonderful cream colored alpaca!|
|The progress of spinning it raw on my wheel Looking Good!|
The weather has been cold so it's been tough to stay motivated to do anything, or at least the things I should be doing instead of what I want to do. I have my nephews coming over tonight and word has it we're finally going to be some snow tonight! Not that I am a fan of snow but when you live in NE Pennsylvania and there's been virtually no snow and it's been so cold, it can get frustrating. If it does start snowing tonight, I think some hot chocolate may be in order for the boys tonight. Looking forward to the company of my sister. I've taught her how to crochet before but lately she has really picked up on it. I am so excited to have a fellow "hooker" ha ha! If the boys and time allow, I may teach her how to dye yarns using kool-aid and food coloring. If all goes well, I will get some pictures along the way to pass on a how-to tutorial in the very near future.
I must now turn off the laptop and get some cleaning done. I would like to close this post with a current picture of our backyard. There is little snow to be seen. This is the most we've gotten so far this year. By this time tomorrow I will hopefully have more to show you. Keeping my fingers crossed that school will be cancelled for tomorrow!
