Something to munch on.

I'm starting to think that it might be time to stop the blog. I'm not sure that I have that much to say anymore with Ravelry and DOL out there to cover my two favorite subjects, yarn love and dogs. Hmm.

My new wheel.

Originally uploaded by emmaundaustin

Okay, I actually got this a few weeks ago, but this is my new Fantasia wheel. I'm spinning some beautiful Enchanted Knoll Millie roving in Dragon's Blood. It's very, very sparkly. I have one bobbin done, and hope to finish the other bobbin some evening this week. Then maybe I can ply over the weekend. The yarn should be about worsted weight after it is finished.

Holy crap! It's genius.

The Yarn Harlot is a confirmed genius. Have you seen her post on knitting mittens with silk hankies? Go look, right now! I'll wait. Cool, is it not? So, I have hankies in my stash. I'm off work early and the dogs went to doggie daycare today, so they are sleeping on the couch. Shall we try it? I think so.

Prep time

I'm printing out the patterns for my own version of the "Self-imposed Sock Club". I just need to remember to get large ziplock bags tomorrow and then I can go stash diving. I love stash diving.

Finnegan's first win!

Today our local kennel club had a pet fashion show. We entered Finnegan and George in the biggest pet category. Also entered were a Bernese Mountain dog and a miniature horse. Finnegan won and the miniature horse got runner up. That's right. My dog is officially bigger than a horse!

Holy Crap, It's snowing!

It really should not be allowed to snow on the 17th of September. I came home from work and had to cover the tomatoes since it was already 35 degrees out. The snow has also brought a bout of castonitis with it. I have four pairs of socks on the needles at the moment. Four! I used to never cast on a second pair. Now I have four going. I think Dawn is starting to influence me. :)
