Sanity Savers.

I'm sometimes amazed at the kindness of strangers.

The man behind me at the grocery store checkout line, who gave me fifty some-odd cents when I was short changed a couple of months ago. The Boy waved "bye-bye" to him and he told me that alone was worth the money.

The person who let me in during rush hour traffic, even though I know they were probably late for work.

And Sachi.

I should be sending her stuff. lol

Instead I get this in the mail...

It's a mixed bag of different fibers to spin!! This is perfect! I've wanted to try new stuff. It has a bit of everything- bamboo (heaven), a few ounces of the most gorgeous blue silk, icelandic wool(so soft! must.get.more.) and there's more!

Woman, I have no idea what I'm going to do for you...but it will be fibery, fuzzy and good. Trust me.

I have a finished baby sweater:

And a new hat.

You know, for not really knitting all that much, I sure am getting alot done.

Anyone know a good colorwork book? Although the front of the hat is perfect, the back where the strands connect looks like a war zone. I want to do fair isle. I want to do color stranding work. A hat was supposed to make me want to do more... Not so much.

And the biggest news!!

Are you sitting down??

My bathroom went from this...

To this!

Cute FOs! And the bathroom is soooo nice!

As for Fair Isle, hmm, I own "The Art of Fair Isle." I like it pretty well. It goes deep into the history of the technique and a lot of good technical and color theory tips.

Oh, lady... you don't have to do anything for me. I know how it felt, being a new spinner, wanting to try new things but not having the funds, ability or access to different fibers. I had this stuff kicking around in the stash and just wanted to share.

I thought about sending you some cashmere but, HELLO? CASHMERE! I'm soooo keeping it for myself. ;-)

The bathroom looks fabulous!

The baby sweater is so cute (something about the tiny size always does me in with baby clothes).
