Well I did finish the Polypay roving I was spinning. To the left is a spool of singles (this was 1/2 way through the 2nd spool). I finished this last week. I dyed it with Jacquard acid dye in Sapphire Blue. The friend that I spun this for is the friend with the Polypay and Polypay/Suffolk sheep, this was roving from the fleece she gave me from one of her Polypay ewes. She wanted a blue scarf so now all I need to do is to knit this into a scarf for her. She will be so surprised that I have this done BEFORE winter :P. The pattern I chose is to use the flowers from the Daisy Rectangular Shawl that I designed. I saw a beautiful use of these flowers on a scarf on Ravelery. (I tried to post a link to her ravelry site but you have to be signed in to ravelry to see it, if you don’t have a ravelry sign in I would suggest getting one, there are soooo many very cool patterns :). ) I’ll post a picture when it is done. 🙂

I love the video of Red Skelton in the following youtube link reciting the Pledge of Allegiance – he’s one of my favorite old time entertainers.
