all day????

ok, only 5, maybe 6 hours! had a SSK in the wrong place and was trying to fix it, but it was in a complicated spot in the pattern... ended up with about 6 rows 6 sts wide undone in the middle of a pattern UGH tried & tried & tried (you get the idea) to fix it. finally got a clue and isolated a complete pattern repeat, undid it to the beginning of the section and just reknit, voila! once i did that, it was all said and done in less than 5 min---sheesh! ok i am relieved, it was beginning to look like i was going to have to frog back to the beginning of the pattern entirely (that would have taken less time than i did trying to avoid it, but i feel as though i conquered)!

updated pic in natural light (during a break from it so that frogging would not ensue

my new Spindolyn with some angora/wool fiber from Susan

also from Susan two (one for my ds who is 8 and loves spinning!) new drop spindles from Jim some silk/wool and some wool/tensil... the day was so bright, it isn't doing the colors justice... they are soft, silky, yummilicious can't wait to spin!
yummilicious fiber

non fiber related.... unless you count the shedding cat hair
