You Spin Me 'Round...

Look what came in the mail for me yesterday!



My Knitty SP is spoiling me rotten! It's very funny, too - the other day I was daydreaming about going to MDSW again this year, and bemoaning the fact that I would have to lay off buying fiber, silk hankies, and other lovely stuff because I hadn't figured out how to use my blasted spindle. SP, you may have set me on the path to spending more money in May! Now let's see if I can master handspinning by then, okay? I love the fact that she also included a DVD; I've never actually seen someone handspin in person and I think that is partly what is holding me back - that I cannot visualize how it is done. Thank you, SP!

Something else came in the mail for me the other day - look at this cool crochet hook keychain:



I had first seen this on Nell's blog and was intrigued. The keychain itself came from 5elementknitr Etsy Shop (sorry -it wouldn't let me create a link!). I may remove the beads and smaller rings and connect the crochet hook to the sturdier ring -but I am really happy with it. It's the perfect thing for picking up dropped stitches and fixing pulls in your sweater.

What? It's not my fault if you can't center your photos.

I'm going to MDSW also! I'm going Sunday, and staying in Frederick Sat and Sun nights. I am not even trying to keep myself from shopping. I got a wheel at Rhinebeck so my goal is to buy a bunch of different fibers to see how everything spins.

I was just wondering the other day if you were coming back for MDS&W again! Yay! Can't wait to see you!

Yarn Barn is my LYS!! What a small world (and, no, I'm not your SP).

I kind of like the off center photo.

Glad you like the keychain!
