I signed up for the Newbie Craft Swap on Craftster. I'm so excited! My parter seems awesome and I've already started on my first craft for her. :) But no previews! I won't post or give away anything I've made until she's recieved her package. :)
I have been doing some more spinning although not much.. I did a couple of practice mini skeins and another navajo ply.. I'll get pics soon.
Hmm.. what else? I STILL havent' picked up my Sahara t continue on it yet.. and I've been playing with Sugar n Cream cotton yarn lately trying to make dishcloths.. why? I have no idea!
Eep. I have to rescue the fluffy kitty from a box now.. lol Don't ask how he got stuck in there, I dont even know!

I'm tired. I should actually be in bed.. especially seeing as I have work tomorrow morning.. but what am I doing instead? Watching "Good Eats" of Food Network and posting a blog. If you hadn't noticed, I'm not all that bright sometimes... lol I know the second my head hits that pillow, I'm going to be wide awake anyways.. oh well.
So I managed to spin my first navajo plied skein yesterday! It's only about 30 yds, but I'm just so darn excited. Roving came from mainewoodsyarn. I really love her rovings. :D I used the pretty blue one and I am absolutely thrilled at how the colors spun up. It's just so pretty!
I can't wait to spin more of this so I have enough finished yarn for a project. :D
And I can't wait for my tax return! Cause I really REALLY want to buy a wheel.. just have to decide what my budget is going to be and what I'm going to want. And where I'm going to be able to put it.. lol Hopefully the cats won't chew it either. One seems to be utterly fascinated with my spindles.. when they're sitting on the desk. And the other is having a grand time chewing and drooling on my balls of pre drafted roving when I set them aside. I swear, I can't turn my back on them for a second! lol

I'm totally in for this since I obviously uh.. have a *coughs* spending habit... or something...
I fI can stick to this, I'll be ok! lol And I'll be able to ge thtough my 6+ bins of yarn. Oy.
The rules on the site are:
Knit From Your Stash 2007:
1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.
2. We will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
2.a. Sock yarn does not count. What? You think we are made of stone?
2.b. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that we really and truly do not have the yarn for, we may buy yarn to knit that gift.
2.c. If we are knitting something and run out of yarn, we may purchase enough to complete the project.
2.d. We each get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time.
3. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.
4. Trading stash is allowed.
5. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.
The only thing I'll change is the date.. so I'll start mine feb 1 and go til oct 31.. O_o What a challenge!
