Roo is still wearing his cone and his bootie.

He is not very happy about it and would rather go and play. Stevie trying to run, jump, and fetch being blind is hard enough. Add bootie and collar and its really hard not to laugh. My blind dog is walking around with what looks like a swimming flipper. It kind of makes that sound to.

He is getting away with murder as his injury does not allow for much play time. When he went in the docs the other day he had lost 8 pounds...I am sure with the cookie quota this last week it is no longer 8 lost.

In Other news. Socks are becoming socks. Just getting started for the toe. Then to pick a cuff style. I was thinking something with nubbs because they are fun to knit. But maybe something less 3d.

Either way once this pair of socks is off the needles I have the next set lined up. More cute trekking yarn. I don't know why I heart it so . . . but I do.

Teach Something Learn Something

I am teaching a drop spindle class here in town. Its Sept 11th.

I have pulled out my sheepy little spindle and spun a few mini itty bitty roving batts. They are a lot of fun to spin and super easy. I love using my spindle . . .not that I don't my wheel but there is such a different feeling to it.

So my spinny friend any tips on teaching drop spinning?
What is your favorite fiber to spin these days?


What do you like to knit with your yarn?

Another show under the belt.

A very very good show. There is nothing better than someone buying your things or taking a card.

I feel good.

This card was made by my booth budy She was fabulous as is what she sells. Each little Aceo and necklace is a wonderful piece of art with there own story.

I am pooped and can't wait to find where I left my sock.
