I love finishing a project! I finished this alpaca scarf today on the airplane. Crochet is so easy to take along. I'd like to do more quilting, but the scissors, and needles, and pins make it not quite so easy.

I finished crocheting this hat today for my mother.
It matches a blue one I made for my daughter.

New Bosworth Maxi!

I just got a new Bosworth Maxi spindle yesterday!
It is made out of Canarywood. Isn't it gorgeous? It just spins and spins. :)

Lots of Alpaca!

I love my alpaca fiber from North Star Alpacas. I couldn't decide which to get, so I ordered 4 different colors. A black, a brown, a light fawn/brown mix, and a white/grey/brown mix. There is a white sample peeking in on the side. And always included are wonderful smelling sachets.

Thyme Merino

Some new fiber for me. Merino in a `thyme' colorway, from
Can't wait to see what it looks like spun up!

New Spindles

Gorgeous new spindles for me! They are from Greensleeves spindles. A Fox in Masur Birch, and a Hound in Australian Red Gum. I love both of them. Now to try them out....

The Birch spindle is so pretty to look at. Very nice to spin on.
The larger Hound is fabulous to spin on. I love it. It is currently my favorite. (I think my favorite is the one I've just used!)
