Oh dear blog, I haven’t forgot you…

If there was a way that I could crochet and type at the same time, I would be updating all of the time! I know I don’t have a whole lot of readers, but I’m sure those that do stop by have noticed a serious lack of posting.

It started out that the Dishcloth-A-Day was taking up most of my time. Between that, a sweater I should have finished ages ago, public speaking and looking after an almost-four-year-old, that didn’t leave a whole lot of time for blog updating.

Then I made one of these and posted it…

Since then, I have had quite a few requests for one, among other hats. I LOVE IT!

I think the other thing is that for some reason, I have it in my mind that I need to type a lot to update. I need to get rid of that kind of thinking. A picture says a thousand words. Maybe I should just be posting more pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

Edit: As much as I would LOVE to take credit for this pattern, the only thing I can take credit for is the leaves on top. This is the link to Crochet Creations by Steph, the person who wrote it ๐Ÿ™‚


I think my spinning wheel just found a new favorite website!!!

As I was looking at my Facebook news feed, I found a link that caught my attention: Alpaca Fleeces. It’s brand new. When I checked the site out, much to my delight, I saw that it was more than alpacas! I mean, they had me at alpaca LOL But add in other animal fibres… Woo hoo!!!!

The roving that they have for sale is just gorgeous! Oooh… I can’t wait to do some shopping! I need to practice my spinning some more first though. These batts are too pretty for a rookie ๐Ÿ˜‰
