Fiber for the Holidays!

There was a lot of fiber to round out the holidays.

From Mom:

(Short Attention Span Theatre #6)


Both are from Gaslight Dyeworks.

From Missy, Sean, and Matthew:

(Lake Michigan)

(Black Rainbow)

Both are from UniquelyYoursDesign.

And just in time because I finished with the first batch - installment two of the Baby Cakes!

Yay! I can't wait to see what yarn this will all turn into.

Holiday and the Fuzzy Kitty and Spinning

I've been too busy to post. We're closing on the condo on Monday and that, along with work, has taken all my focus and energy. I'll post pictures of the condo on Monday - better ones than I took on the tour.

In my free time, I have been spinning. I spun up the Baby Cakes for this month's club. Here are some random pictures of them.

I also spun up the Rain Puddles 'n Rubber Duckies roving I had - colonial/merino.

I am now working on some merino I had - a colorway called Springtime. I am trying to not feel bleak because of the winter setting in.

Finally, Seth got me this roving. It's called Brain Pop and is very, very exciting!

Although we are closing on the 22nd and moving on the 28th, Seth decorated the apartment for the holiday season. I am glad he did - it looks great.

Of course, our lovely fuzzy kitty got into everything!

I hope she has as much fun exploring the new place next week.
