It's been very busy around here the last week, preparing for the 7th Annual Tim Klotz Memorial Golf Outing which was held on Tuesday. It's exhausting emotionally and physically, but it raises a nice bit of money for local charities and it also gets together a lot of my Dad's friends so that they can chat about him and recall his antics which is always fun.
But I have found some time to craft too! Last week Theresa come over for a spinning day and I finished up my first bobbin of this lovely shocking pink Blue Moon Fiber Arts handpainted roving in the colorway Cranberry. The fiber is 50% Alpaca and 50% Blue Faced Leicester -- yum! It's been an absolute joy to spin. I spun the second bobbin up this past weekend and just need to spin up bobbin #3 so can make my three ply. After that, Maddie will be getting a nice new pair of mittens and something else -- a matching hat or scarf or both depending on the yardage. (Alden Amos would have my head. Before I started spinning, he would have me calculate my estimated yardage according to some complicated weighing and measuring of a sample. Forget that!)
I've also got a weaving project on the loom and Maddie's socks are almost finished! Two incredible books arrived on Tuesday too, so I need to review them. Oh my goodness, I have a lot to do!
