Many of you out there who are spinners, will be familiar with the bowl of yarns that grace every corner of my house. When you buy an ounce or two of fiber, or have those precious little balls of left-over from a project yarn, they start to accumulate. Handspun somehow is different than commercial yarns.....all the care that goes into spinning it, makes it that much harder to part with.
So, at this time of the year, when the fall fairs are upon us, I gather up all these little balls of yarn......most of which has some angora content, and start knitting. Hats, hats, hats and more hats.....LOL! I am striving for one hat an evening......we will see!
Now, had I not had a very sizable gift card, I never would have ventured into these waters, but after reading about all the podcasts out there and finding how easy (and less expensive) it is to download some of the music I enjoy, I thought it was time. Of course, I haven't completely figured out how to use it, or my cellphone for that matter, but heck, with all these kids I have around, they should be able to clue me in a little bit..LOL.
Speaking of children........today is the first day of school for the little cherubs. As much as I love my children, I have to admit that I look forward to the first day of school when my little corner of the world is all mine again....at least for 8 hours. I know, I know, that does not make me a "Chicken Soup" kind of Mum, but it keeps me a sane woman!
