Good morning!

I've very excited....I've started a new email group at yahoogroups. (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SimplySpinning/) I hope this list will become a place of friendly chatter about all things fiber, about the challenges of life -- especially the challenges of living simply, and life in general.

Nothing much else new at the moment.

Well, the reptarium arrived. I haven't done the moving of the dragons yet as I want to get the floor painted and the shelves put up first. Hopefully this weekend.

On the fiber front: I'm sad to say that for a reason I don't understand, I've been banned from the Spindlers List. I will miss most of the folks from the list. If you are a Spindler, feel free to email me, I'd love to keep in touch.

I have finished working the gusset of my first sock. It wasn't as hard as I imagined it would be. This sock knitting thing is surprisingly fun. I also received my 2 pounds of churro in the mail yesterday. Lovely stuff! I look forward to spinning it. I'm beginning to have a backlog of fiber so I need to stop buying fiber until I can catch up! But, it's all so lovely it's hard not to buy it. I've also "officially" adopted a cotswold ram for the year...I'll get his fleece next year at shearing time. Here is the link to my online album of fibery stuff: http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/frecs7/lst?.dir=/My+Photos/Fibre+Arts&.src=ph&.order=&.view=t&.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/

I spindled yesterday during my hour reception duty. Had several co-workers ask what I was doing...they weren't curious enough to stick around and learn more, though. But, that's okay. I'm just glad I'm getting comfortable spinning in public.

Have a blessed day!
