I am doing okay today.  Watching the snow fall which is very unusual for it this time of year here.

My weekend was very productive and tiring!  ;) 

I am looking forward to seeing my youngest granddaughter.  It has been too long since I have seen her.

I am hoping to work on a few projects this week. Some felt decorations with my dd, I would like to embroider a few onesies for my granddaughter and for a baby shower gift.

Hope you are having a great day!

I'm fine. How are the boards? (I ask, because I can't see what I'm replying to. Also, I've been having problems getting text into separate paragraphs. See if this works.)

.

Actually, I just got back from buying new bras with/for my teenager. Expensive, but successful. Snow is melting by the buckets. I finished a neckwarmer Saturday morning, in time to use Saturday afternoon. Not-teen daughter loves it -- has the "Mockingjay" symbol in double-knit. Peacock pattern is done, but now there's the question of where/how to hang it. Supposedly that's DH's department.

.

So I'm almost finished with the pound of wool top. I've made a hat, did a stripe in another hat, and made some colored yarn that might become a baby blanket. (Friend; made a comment about "I want to keep as much plastic away from my child as I can"; Real 100% washable wool is probably a win.) And I've got a lot of stuff available to spin. 4 oz wool/tussah; 8 oz alpaca/bamboo; still something in the phat fiber box (samples).

.

Played with my violin, too. Got special strings that sound an octave lower.

Oh no, I am sorry you can't see what you are replying to. What browser are you using. I am using Firefox. Yay for the snow melting and finishing the neckwarmer. My tween dd loves to think that everything I make besides baby things belong to her. ;) So glad the peacock pattern is done and I hope Dh finds the perfect place to hang it. That is great to have stuff available to spin. I am hoping one day to get into that. I find it fascinating. I have been thinking about getting started on a drop spindle. Have you used one of those before?

I have a drop spindle and a supported spindle (odd thing; I think it most resembles an African bead spindle). I don't intend to get a wheel -- takes too much space, and not portable. I might get a couple more drop spindles sometime, though, so I can have several projects going at once. (Cat hair on the supported spindle, but the other one is used for both spinning & plying)

I don't have the room for a wheel either though I think they are wonderful. It is nice to know that I can spin some lovely wool with the drop spindle. Thanks!
