A little update while dinner cooks

Here's what I've been working on:

I made a new pair of Monkeys with the yarn that I got in the skein swap. This was incredibly good timing- the day I started the second sock, my original Monkeys just fell apart. All in one day- I put them on in the morning, they were fine. At night, there were 3 holes in each sock. Seriously, beyond repair. Darning is not an option. But all is well, because now I have some replacements! :)

And check out those snazzy sock blockers Santa brought me!

Santa also brought me a new spindle- a Bosworth Midi!

I LOVE it, it's the most amazing spindle I've ever spun with!

I will fo sho be getting a new one come Fiber Season. I mean, Spring.

Continuing with what is apparently my Blue Period, I got this fiber from Spunky Eclectic. Merino in the Castaway colorway. This is my attempt at spinning chunky.

That is all. :)

I MIGHT have some ridiculously exciting news, but it's not actually news yet, it's just a possibility. It has nothing to do with marriage or babies, but once I know for sure I'll talk about it. Mind, it's not actually exciting to anyone but me.

I'd just like to take a moment to send a shout out to my girl Ariel, for whom tomorrow, Jan 7th, will be her final day as a smoker. I'm super proud of you! I did it, 3 and a half years ago. It sucks, but I know you can do it, too, and you will be SO HAPPY when you do. :) You have my number if you need to call and anguish.
