knitting and spinning

i did hook most of yesterday and the big mat is almost finished. sunday evening brenda dropped in with a bag of her own hand dyed fleece - exquisite deep colours . and some carders that she showed me how to use. so yesterday afternoon i gave in to temptation and spun my first tiny bit of yarn. magic! and alluring!
check out robyn's blog Robyn Love she is working on a large knitting project for a conference show in dallas at the end of feb. and needs as many knitters as she can get to help. it's a mile long strip of garter, so you needn't be an expert knitter. and she'll provide the yarn.

i only know what roving is (the woolen kind) because I heard you can make wonderful bouncy balls and decorative easter eggs by felting it.

love the etsy shop and am telling everyone about it.
