No pics today

Been spinning. I've spun up a small amount of the Finn that came free with my wheel (who's name is Lulu, btw), and navajo plied it. I also spun up all of the alpaca/merino/silk blend that I bought at the Yarn Tree awhile back. It's going to remain singles, because there's really not that much of it to be plied. I have a lot of plied stuff that needs to have the twist set. I will definitely do that this weekend, as the hubby goes back to work this weekend and I will have more alone time than I really care to have.

Knitting has not been abandoned because I now have Lulu. I have finished one of two Tulip Toes for an ex-coworker's new addition. I'm finally using the one lonely skein of Sock Candy that I bought last year at Rhinebeck. I've also knit up Madge, copying my downstream Spinning SP Cathy, using some of my very own handspun. I, like Cathy, had a smaller gauge yarn, so I had to adapt the pattern. Pics to come.

Also to come, a contest for my birthday. Put on your thinking caps folks....I'm going to give you a photo, and you'll have to come up with a caption. The best caption wins a prize.

And yes, the background of the blog is now brown....It almost matches one of the cookies in the header, right? Right!? :)
