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.

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. :)
