First installment of a blog novice

Wow, what a wonderful day I had yesterday...met with some new friends for an afternoon of spinning and chatting and fun. We spun for nearly 3 hours, and I was so energized that I came home and spun some more. I spun and plied and skeined off 8 oz of a wool/alpaca blend called seabreeze (even though it's orange and grey and brown-go figure). I'm panicked about going to Moline for Thanksgiving...don't have everything together and packed yet and leaving Tuesday. I fly to Denver and back today, so nothing will get done this day. I'm taking my Traveler wheel and ball winder so I can spin while I'm gone, I have so much to work on and need to get the yarn done for a project for a toddler in Conn. that dear hubby got me. I plan on trying to add to my blog at least weekly, and will take some pictures (as soon as I relocate my digital camera) of some of my work...I'm such a newbie knitter but I keep trying.

Thank you Amie for the recommendation on the book "knitting without tears" as I ordered it last night. Thank you Caroline for the tea and cookies, and for inviting Amie and I to your lovely home. Now I'm off to work. :)
