Spinning into the New Year or What I Learned in 2010

Ok....so these are the hanks I finished over the new year holiday...the spinning is holding me and I'm so excited about the natural roving I got while away.  More to come on that soon. 

So, 2010....I learned to drop spin, to ply, to weave, to wind on a nostepinne (just barely the last day of the year), to knit socks toe up, to continental knit, to felt a little better, to identify more sheep and fibre bearing animals, there are really no moose in Vermont, Ben & Jerry's is fattening, I love dirty martinis, I am a Godmother (I know...images of a wand with a star on top and me singing, "Bibbity, Bobbity, Boo" are freaking you all out....but I do look good in my tiera don't I?)......  What a wonderful year of learning and experiencing for me....

For 2011, I would like to learn to make tea from leaves that I can actually drink, weave patterns, spin on a wheel, dye fibre, rid my yard of moles, oh the list is too long......the projects too many...  I would also like to go to more fibre festivals and knit more for charity.  So much to do, so little time.

Here's to 2011....a year filled with learning, fibre, friends and my family.

I'm already recalling that completely mezmerizing feeling of watching you spin....it was incredible! These are just beautiful yarns and make me want to learn to spin!
