Rock the Vote!

I'm not talking politics.  Lord no.  I don't want to even go there right now but I am talking about the Martha Stewart Presents American Made Awards.  One of our local fiberistas, Jill Draper,  is a finalist to win $10,000 to help put towards her business.  Go here and please VOTE for her!  If you want to see a peek into her philosophy about handmade goods and yarn take a look at this video.  And lastly, if you want to see how much more of an awesome person she is, check out her blog!

Voting ends September 24th!

Summer Flings

Summer is over and a new school year for me is beginning.  The following are some snapshots of what my summer- in relation to fibery goodness looked like (glamor photos to come, of course!):

Started my Christmas crafting with Rebecca Danger.... 

 One of my yarny friend gave me some booties for Angelo.  Too cute, right??

Helloooo new spindle!  The story about how I acquired this will be told in a future post...

Some crap fiber that I practiced with and immediately took of my spindle:

Trying to make a crescent shawl.  We will see how this goes since making a shawl just doesn't seem to be in the cards for me lately.

 It's such a pretty green though....
