Green For St. Patty's Day

olive brown 3Man, I had a much better post title in my head before I went to sleep last night. We're still finishing off those cupcakes, who knew that 30 cupcakes would be so many? lol I can't wait for April and those new ProjSpec colors, bring 'em on!! Of course, I was already playing with green. :)

Yesterday I finished spinning the olive and plied the two together. I love it. My plying still needs a lot of work, it's hard to figure out how to balance them. In theory it is easy, but in practice, well not so much. On a plus note, I really want that Kromski Symphony. Tuesdayolive brown 2 I will go in and solidify my order. :) Spinning on it was a dream, I couldn't believe I finished up all of that olive AND my plying all in one day. The chocolate seemed to take forever to spin. Definitely still uneven too, I still get those slubby spots here and there. Either way I have 194 yards of yarn now! Yay! What I'm thinking is that I'll spin the rest of the chocolate (I only had about 4oz of it) and try to spin up enough olive to match it. Then I'll figure out what I want to do with however much I have. Right now, I'm actually thinking of...*gasp* a scarf! We all know how I feel about those. Maybe I'm delusional.

I also bought (okay actually, I put it on my "tab" lol) a small roving kit. It'smidnight sky 3 some diferent colored wool that my LYS owner (or maybe it was Melissa?) blended together (with some flash!), it's called "Midnight Sky". Now, if you even think you might be my PRGE pal, please stop reading. Originally, I had planned to spin that Cherry Blossom Fibers roving for my pal. When I saw it though, I got selfish pangs. *sigh* I'm a bad pal. So, I bought the Midnight Sky to replace it. lol Actually, the Midnight Sky is pretty too. I had been wanting to buy it for myself for awhile, but decided that it would be rather fitting for my PRGE pal. Being that it is purple, black, and blue. There is some white/grey in there too. The flash is even purple. :)

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
