Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

The Learning Curve: Week 4


I took my one and only spinning lesson 4 weeks ago today.  After my epic fail this weekend, I now have this!

This is from one of the rovings that Frankie and I dyed.  I did decide after doing some reading, that the roving felted a little bit when we microwaved it.  Oh, well.  What do you expect from someone who has never dyed before and a 10 year old?  I’m still really enjoying working with color!

I also finished Hypernova.

We were all hanging out last night, and the goofy dog decided she should lie down on my wet shawl.  Why?????

I may even model this one this afternoon when the kids get home.  I’m not hanging out in my pajamas for once.  My hair looks decent too, because today was the big “cover the gray and haircut” day!  No promises though.

Time to dig out the laundry room!  I did a gazillion loads of laundry yesterday.  It’s all folded, but I just need to distribute it to everyone’s room.  The kids put their own laundry away (or not) but I need to put mine away.  Then it’s tortellini soup for dinner tonight.  After that, it’s piano and homework.  And later…some knitting and spinning.

Life is good!  God is good!
