It Is Time.... start spinning all that roving. Which leads me to my number one New Year's resolution. Spin all that roving!

So, that is what I have been doing. I have decided that not only is it time to start spinning all my roving, it is time to start knitting with my own handspun yarn. Not quite sure why I have not really done this before. I guess I have been concentrating too much on spinning and not on the gratification of knitting my own yarn. It is kinda cool really. To have made something all on my own from just mere fibers. Now all I need is a little Corriedale sheep! :-)

This is the yarn that I got from the Taos Sunflower. It is Copper and Berry Corriedale that I spun into 2 ply. I am knitting it into a little something for someone that I cannot say!

The crisis in Haiti is just unimaginable. They need help. There are so many ways that we can help. Pick a charity, American Red Cross, Doctors Without Boarders, Oxfam, or Yele Haiti. There are so many ways to help. If you are even able to contribute is $5.00, that is more than enough. Haiti needs help and we are capable of doing so. Do what you can and it will mean the world.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! We had a nice low key night at home with friends and family. We had a nice spread of food and I went to town! It was so good! Kalin made fried popcorn shrimp and a nice cocktail sauce, it was yummy. Mel made red beans and rice with sausage. Good stuff. We also caught a glimpse at the ever so anticipated blue moon.

We rang in the New Year with a little New Year's Chimay toast.
