Fiber and Dogs!

This week has been a busy one and a sick one. I spent Tuesday at home sick, which started as allergies and has not progressed to chest congestion. I feel better though just have a cough. I also have been spinning a bunch on the citrus fiber and working on my Entrelac sock. Last night I cast on for a felted spinning wheel bag, which I should be done in the next hour and will felt and share picture. SUPER quick pattern and I'm knitting it out of handspun!


So, the fiber you ask, where does that come in. Well, today was our March Spinners and Weavers guild meeting and we had our annual sale. This year was a market and I got some great stuff. I got some beautiful Romney wool from a lady, whose daughter raises the sheep.
And then I picked up a flick comb for $1 and a cute little pin cushion. Also these two bobbin holders which were FREE! There was a lot of great stuff but this is what I settled on. I stayed under budget which is what I'm most proud of!!


Well..since I got home I have spent the last 3 hours rearranging my office/stash room, cleaning the house, and giving the dogs baths. I'm ready for some knitting, spinning, and watching some of my shows! Special K is fishing with a friends so he might be home soon but who knows. It's a really nice day so they may not want to come home for a while!!
I hope you are all well and here are some pictures of my pups to keep you going until the next post. They are just too cute!!
Happy Knitting and Spinning and Dog Loving!!
