The days have been a whirlwind of soaking fiber, stirring the caldron, hanging skeins in the wind and sitting behind the carder, as well as having a busy time at my real job. Not much time unfortunately for blogging, but I feel as though I am getting caught up on some of your lives again. Even though I can't type when I am carding, I do get a chance to read away, and it has been theraputic. So nice to see what is going on in everyone's lives and all the wonderfully, beautiful knitting that's been happening:-).
A few weeks ago, as you may remember, it was my birthday. I forgot to show you the little gift that I bought for myself. A bag of Alice Starmore Bainin yarn went up for sale on one of the email sale lists. Given that Brick is a color I love and I have been wanting to try some of this yarn for so long, I went for it :-). Now 12 skeins would have been a bit better than 10, so if anyone has 2 skeins of Brick Bainin kicking around, you know where to find me :-)
Last post you saw Maggie looking absolutely beautiful....and she is! Maggie however is very mischeivous and loves to tussle with Kali my little black and tan baby. Now Kali is a dear and puts up with waaay more abuse than most any dog would (imagine a big, gangly Maggie tackling a little 11 pound baby), but she is only patient up to a point....can you tell what point she was at when I took this picture?? Haha! Kali is a beautiful girl............but with the sun in her eyes and being completely exasperated with Maggie, she's looking pretty mean here...<grin>.
