The aaaahhhh from up north
Once we returned home, it was back in the humidity and grateful for air conditioning. Went to work today and what was delivered to me? But a BOX of roving from Ginny at Fat Cat Knits, I mean a BOX people! I got NINE pounds of roving. NINE! Don't even ask me how long it will take me to spin that up. I placed the order 2 wees ago and have spun madly trying to clear the way from my stash so I can nestle these beauties in the basket...
Oh and while in Grand Marais, I found a small yarn shop and Emily picked something out there for my upcoming birthday. I picked out a book Knit! Swirl! This is the most beautiful sweater idea I've seen in awhile. And I'm toying with spinning enough yarn to make it for myself. Can't think of a better way of showcasing my own handspun at events than to work up something like that.
Well I better get back at it and NO I don't mean rolling in my roving!
