Easter & hair cut

Glitter eggs, candy hunt in jammies, new shades, Cabury Cream Eggs for breakfast - must be Easter.

Some before and after hair cut pictures, both of us lost about half of our hair.

More signs of Spring soon!

Nothing says spring in Michigan like 6" of snow

I was taken hostage by Twitter & Facebook

I've been sucked into Twitter - follow me here.
& Facebook.
Though the love and obsessiveness has be waning.

Back at the ranch, I've been spinning like a woman in love. In love with my latest wheel:

Here's some of my spinning. A trip around some of Michigan's fiber folk.
Suzanne Pufpaff's black wool with streaks of lime, fuchsia and turquoise.

CJ Kopec's merino and corriedale

Yarn Hollow's merino, alpaca & tussah, mmmmmmmm. Beth has a great selection at her shop too.

I've been playing with my drum carder, too. This is some shetland from Windswept Farm, blended with some tiny yarn snips for a little tweedy action

Still knitting some, but I've mostly been a spinning fiend. Not even doing much designing these days. This little swatch might become something for Beth if she likes it.

My Honey , the Andy of this Andy, fractured his wrist while popping wheelies with the kiddos.
He has Injured Husband Syndrome tm - you know, grumpy, restless, cranky. Worse than Man Cold.

New baby

I have a new to me DT Journey Wheel! All thanks to Carla who kept asking her friend, Nancy, who's not spinning much any more. I never get tired of looking at how it all unfolds. Join me won't you?

Yep, Scotch Tension :-)
Also since Nancy's not spinning much anymore Carla score 3 huge bags of fiber. The biggest yum found - an Indigo Moon batt - merino, alpaca, silk. If you don't hear from me for a couple of days, I'm spinning.
