My weekend was not just filled with Yarnover, nope, we had my whole family staying at our house over the weekend. That meant we had 6 adults and 2 little girls under two tucked in with the four of us. It was a house filled to the brim with love. While it isn't something I would want to do on a regular basis, it was fabulous to have all of us under one roof. We had not all been together in several years. It was amazing.
Now I have some breathing room. I've pushed so hard for 4 months, getting ready for DFW Fiber Fest, Yarnover 3 weeks after that, one sale to my local yarn shop in between and having my family here that I'm beyond exhausted. I've spun over 60 skeins of yarn in those 4 months. That is a lot. I have time now before my next scheduled events in late summer/early fall. I finally have a chance to knit again. I have a chance to possibly teach a couple classes in knitting and I'm working up what I think will work. Stay tuned, it is a new adventure for me.

For months I've been madly spinning. I spun over 60 skeins of yarn in just over three months. With work, the girls activities and life in general, something had to go. It was knitting. Well we've been home from DFW Fiber fest for a week. And after a brief respite I'm back to spinning. And knitting!
This is my Quaker Yarn stretcher. Out of a single I spun called Lollipop. I love the bright colors and it makes me smile every time I pick it up.
