I'm hand plying on the drop spindle which goes really fast but it's because I haven't learned how to ply on the wheel yet and I don't have but the one custom spindle that came with the wheel.

Now that I've gotten through the continual frogging phase, I'm actually enjoying knitting this. I'll also enjoy wearing this for sure. And, that's not something I can say about everything I knit.

All along it was thought to be in a skein! And then, I thought that it was this pink alpaca that I had been working with! It was under my nose the whole time. Fearless Fibers sock yarn (they've gone out of business I believe.)
For those of you who have considered an Amber Alert on my behalf, I thank you. The crisis is over...well...at least THIS knitting crisis.
I stand corrected per a comment on this post: Fearless Fibers is alive and well in Oregon.

I don't even NEED this pink yarn right now, but I want to find it. I want to know where all my "kittens" are!!!
I found a little ball of yarn I need to send to deb.
I found lots of green sock yarn, much to my pleasure because I love green. But, no pink.
Maybe I need to eat some dinner.

Barb actually came into town from Phoenix to experience an evening at Powell's with The Yarn Harlot. We met Nana and Elizabeth and Roger there and had a fab time. I nearly peed my pants laughing, and believe me, it's hard to get me that tickled....without actually tickling me, that is.
Please note that Barb has fab pictures of the Harlot experience and you should check out her blog for more knitting action http://www.the-string-and-i.blogspot.com/
In this picture, Brahms has decided that this is not quite peaceful enough for her and she's moving on, pronto.

And, it was a great one! I don't usually name names here on this blog, but I would sincerely like to thank Holly, Rory, Riis, Teresa, Gillian, Gaby and all the other well-wishers out there. I am a bit birthday phobic and these folks made it all great.
(Word has it that my knitting buds have something planned for Sunday as well...)
I decided to dress the part with a little black dress and a cropped cardi that I just finished in Rowen Linen Print and a pattern from Lion Brand. I would definately knit this one again. Sorry I can't include the link, but it's a newish free pattern from them.
On my mind for the new sun cycle is opening up my life to more experiences and people this Summer and see what reward that may reap by Fall.
