Long absence......... what do I have to show for it you ask?? A big fat nothing. I have done SOME spinning but not much. Here's the latest 2 skeins. Getting better but the 100% alpaca (the solid one) came out much bulkier than I had anticipated. I was actually trying to spin a little thicker, since I tend to spin very thin naturally, so I guess I succeeded. I wasn't trying to succeed that much though. Call me an overachiever I guess.

That 100% alpaca that I got from Georgia Mountain Fiber spins like a DREAM!


I have done absolutely NO knitting on my master's swatches so I have got to get going on those.

I have done some work on the alpaca blanket. I have 5 crochet squares done so far. 58 more to go. These are fast and easy and I can easily do one of them while watching American Idol (don't ask, I have to watch otherwise I have nothing to talk to my dad about on Thursday - he is a total AI addict).

I am EXTREEMLY anxious to share with everyone what has been taking over mine and Mr. Man's life lately but we can't let the cat out of the bag just yet. Trust me, it is great news though! Let's just say that he and I are in for some big life changes very soon - soooooooo exciting!!

I really dig the colors of the yarn on the left. As always you can feel free to send me that yummy alpaca anytime! :)

Sounds like you and Mr Man have been making more than yarn bowls! Congrats.
