I’ve gotten in a decent amount of spinning in the past few weeks…

This one’s for Jenn, who’s been waiting so patiently:


(please excuse the crappy photo. I can’t seem to take a decent photo to save my life these days…maybe my eight year old 2MP camera has something to do with it…that, or I’ve simply lost my mojo.)

And this one just went up in the shop:


Not much new on the knitting front…I finished these mittens for my wee-est one:


(I’m really fond of that photo, because you can see my little handspun-hanknit-socked toe in the corner. Sigh. Those are my favorite socks in the whole world.)

…I’m also writing a new pattern, I think — well, I’m knitting something and taking lots of notes. So I can’t really post about it until I decide if I want to submit it somewhere, or just let it out into the wild. 😉


And timely good fortune at that!

First off I have to say that I’m addicted to the craftzine blog. My brother gave me a subscription to Craft last year and it’s such a fun magazine…and the blog is like having a snippet of the mag every day for breakfast. They scour the web for the coolest crafty things that pop up — patterns, tutorials, etsy items, etc. It’s an amazing time suck source of inspiration.

This week they had a random drawing for a giveaway…a $50 gift certificate from Warm Biscuit, which has the most squee-worthy fabric!! Now, my kid goes to parochial school, folks, so I enter raffles on a regular basis. But I can’t remember the last time I won anything. I just don’t have that mojo.

Or so I thought!  How flippin’ cool is that?!
