Today's knitting project

A finished project!!!!  There is also 1lb -625 yards of yarn drying on the rack - I have been busy :) That and the fact its too cold to go out for long periods of time.

But these babies sure help going out in the cold.  You can NEVER have too much fleece on your hands!

A spot of colour in a world of white

Took me a while to find him -all I heard was the rat-tat-tat but there he was :)  A wonderful sight on a sunny winter day.

Hoping for the best

Two days in a row I can get back on :)  Now to find something post worthy.  I'm currently spinning some super fine merino/silk roving that I got in a christmas swap -might be a Maryland entry.
Its wheel spun though which I normally don;t enter. I do have two spindle spun skiens done though -one bulky spingles and the other a really nice two ply from Maggie's farm incredible Mother fiber roving.

Snowing like crazy here but the kids still had school and I still have to go to work -good thing its a short drive. Stay warm and safe everybody!

I have fought the good fight and may have won!!!!

Goggle has locked me out of the blog since November -finally after much work and paper filling I think i am back.
I have been busy spinning trying to add to the stash for spring. bunnies are taking the winter off but will start again in February -hoping for lots of new babies then.

Kids, and critters continue to thrive and take over the house :) Jared will be 16 (breath deeply) in April and Lindsay will be 12 in March. Am I ready -heck nooooooo.
Bogie our shy shelter kitty continues to become more and more of a sucky kitty. When the dogs allow it he loves to snuggle on the couch with a human preferably Jared who remains his rock.

Fingers crossed folks I am BACK!!!!
