Are you ready for All Hallows Eve?
Do you have your treats ready?
It has been a busy end of month – I am amazed at how mild it has been. The weather man did not need to tell me that it has been one of the warmest October’s on record – I have been appreciating how nice it has been. We still have some pockets of vibrant color outside – all in all, it has been a truly lovely fall.
I have been busy spinning – this is truly addicting. This summer I bought some beautiful Wensleydale fiber from Flying Fibers at the Allegan Fiber Festival. I also met the sheep who gave this lovely fiber. So, from sheep to yarn – here is a great example. I wish I had bought more of this yummy stuff. As you can see – it is natural – no dyes. My girlfriend, blogless Mary, bought some as well. I am going to buy it from her and spin up a bit more. I see a clapotis in this yarn’s future. I wish that you all could feel how soft this stuff is.
I am very happy with my spinning on this. The color in the photo does not do the yarn justice – it is really a very intense brown-grey.
I had hoped to get my “Special Swap” package out on Saturday, but that did not happen. I have it all set to go out today. I had fun putting this package together – our theme was “movie night”. I hope my pal enjoys the treats I put in her package!
Things have been a bit topsy turvy here also – remember the kitten that Heidi brought home? Well, she took that kitten over to her dad’s home. They were looking for a kitten – so, he moved over to their home.
A co-worker had a black kitten that she was hoping to find a home for… and this is the cutest little kitty! I had the dickens of a time trying to get a picture of her this morning though.
Here she is in all her green-eyed glory. She is so funny. She loves the dogs. But, Miss Noel is not so sure about this little rascal yet…
Here is where the contest comes in – help us name Little Kitty and I will send off some yarny goodness to the winning name.
Leave your name suggestions in the comments – you have until Friday at noon EST.
Happy Halloween everyone! Have a fun day!
