The Eaves are Dripping

the sap is running....
the kids are smiling....
It's warm enough to play outside!

200 yards of fingering weight yarn from Spunky Eclectic's "Pie for Everyone"
To make socks for Mercy

New Ann Grout spindles for Christmas! A present from family in California finally arrived this week..... beauteous! that is green cotton on the little one.

The big one should be a fine plying spindle.....I didn't have one of those!

A little 75 yd skein of yarn that I spun up from a 1 oz Loop sample batt,

nestled on top of BFL fiber that I dyed and am in the process of spinning up for the knitted border on my grey triloom shawl.

Spring is really starting to show it's face around here. Lots of thunderstorms lately.

Your spinning is gorgeous.

What an adorable picture! :o) I can't believe you have another one of those gorgeous Celtic spindles! I'm glad you were blessed with this gift.

PS and totally off topic . . . I just saw Abby's "getting ready for workshop" post. Please DO tell me you're still planning on going to the spindle workshop with Abby this month?

Love the picture of the skein on the grass patch, and of your kids playing.

The new spindles are a great addition to your collection.

Hope you had a Blessed Resurrection Day.
