Go Figure ;)


This morning we awoke to SNOW!



It's been interesting to say the least!
Isn't it almost May? It warmed up to 50 degrees from 34....& now it looks like it's snow again...
Ah well, what do I care? I've got a nice warm house & I've got lots to do! Keep good thoughts for the trees & plants...they were Not ready for this one.



I finished Michael's *Fuzzy Feet* socks...made from Pat Fly's wonderful bamboo sock yarn with mohair added into the foot, heels & toes. Well see if Mr. Sock Destructo..ie DH can destroy these in short order time. He loves them so far and had worn them full time since we took this picture ;)




I decided to take the dye into my own hands and see what I could do. I had some wool roving that I bought at Black Sheep 2 years ago....and some dye I purchased a while back.
With help from Dear Lisa I mixed up the meager colors that I had & went for it. The roving was pretty uggley and I was ready to toss it....but Lisa said, spin it up anyway and see what comes of it (or something to that effect)..........so I did...I was amazed that it turned out as well as it did.....And just to remember my first try at dyeing and spinning I made this sachet. It's filled with Home Grown Lavender and will live in my drawer to make it smell great.
See what can be accomplished with A Friend, some dye, Vicodin and Fortitude ;)
PS.....I am feeling a bit better & even have made a few buttons the last few days!!

Michael's socks seem to go hand in hand, or is that foot in foot, with the roses in the snow. :)

Beautiful socks, dear. Isn't it amazing how a roving can transform once it's spun, and then transform again when it's knit?
