This is a spot for me to ramble about my interests which include my cats and dogs, knitting, spinning, and a few other crafts/hobbies.

More Snuggles and Spinning Progress
It feel good to be able to use a crochet hook without hand pain. After breaking the wrist and developing tendinitis in the hand a few years ago, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to ever enjoy this fiber craft again. So far, six Snuggles have flown off my hook. Here's a pic of these six. :
Number 7 is almost finished. Numbers 8, 9, and 10 are in line to be done as well. Here's a couple pics of the yarns for those four.:
I've been spending all my time working on these or spinning so my sweater and sock knitting hasn't been touched.
Speaking of spinning, I finished plying the eight ounces of Rambouillet in "Gothic Roses". The total yardage is 1250. It's a personal best for me. :)
Now, I've started spinning the pretty moorit colored Shetland I got last December from Groton Family Farm in CT. There's 10 ounces of this stuff, and it spins like butter.
