1st Skein of the Polypay Lambs Roving is……… Done :)

1st skein polypay lamb roving


I finally finished this polypay skein!!!   It’s been a while since I started it.  I should have finished it long ago, but I was busy (and maybe a little lazy too).  The picture on the left is just wound from the spool to the pvp pipe niddy noddy.  There are some really pretty wooden niddy noddys but this one suffices :).  It is a 2 yard wrap so if my math is correct I spun 258 yards which should be plenty for the scarf I will be knitting.  It is a sport weight (about 18 wraps per inch).  The picture on the right is after I used the red (Crimson) Jacquard acid dye.  She chose the red dye and I have chosen to knit my Little Lace Cat’s Paw Scarf pattern because the teen I am knitting this for loves cats.  I think she will like the pattern. 🙂

 Soon I will start spinning the next skein  from the Ewe Polypay fleece my friend gave me, and will make a scarf for her to thank her for the fleece.   That way they will have one, fleece to finished scarf, from both fleeces :).  I will post a picture of the finished scarf when I have it done, hopefully this week, but as I always tell my children, no promises, only that I will try.

It Came, It Came!!!

Unofficial Harry Potter Knits


It came!  I indulged myself in a new knitting magazine.  I love Harry Potter and when I saw this book I was very excited.  It is called The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits.  After looking at it from cover to cover, I am very happy :).

Below I put a picture of  the inside part that shows the items it has, I hope that it will enlarge enough to get a look at them ;).

Dallas Cowboys!!!

.OH MY, it’s that time again.  They have started preseason a bit early with exhibition games but I won’t complain!! 

The Cowboy’s played the Dolphins on Sunday, but because it was Sunday I missed it.  They won tho’, 24 to 20.  🙂  They are playing the Raiders tonight, and yes I am watching.  The Cowboys are my favorite NFL team and the Raiders are my favorite AFC team, so it’s a delima about who wins.  They don’t play each other very often, maybe once a year in preseason or if they happened to play against each other in the Super Bowl, I won’t hold my breath lol, but it’s fun watching this game. 😉 

School will be starting for all the kids in a few weeks and then Fall will be here.  Been a nice summer and altho’ there are lots of nice things I like about Fall (cooler weather, Football, my birthday :P), knowing that cold Winter will follow is not one of the things I look forward to (did I mention that I am not a Winter person?).  Winter is cold and baren (except for the grey snow after it’s been around a while) and around here it lasts forever.  OK it has one good thing,  it gives me one thing I look forward to every year very much, SPRING!!
