How My Garden Grows

See the bean patch, Mom B? The beans started blooming this week. And the flower gardens are getting prettier every day.

Tour de Fleece Week 2 Finished Yarns.... including the Mile that Wasn't

This 3 ply Dragonfibers BFL is fiber that I won for the picture that Verity took of me spindling on the first day of the tour. It is destined to become mittens for her, I think.

No, I haven't spun a mile of yarn in a day, and perhaps I don't even have the ability to do so.....yet. But this blue yarn is my first try...... 900 yards of spindle spinning, 300 yards of wheel plying in one day.
