Oh hai there!

Welcome to my blog.

First things first - allow me to introduce my mascot, owner, and most adorable Siamese mix ever.

This is Annabelle.

She is helping me write a paper here.

Her hobbies include supervising my knitting and spinning, terrorizing her sister Dahlia, operating a pretzel empire, and napping. After two and a half years, she has finally learned that I do not need help while knitting.

This blog is a blog of adventure. I will be posting about my current knitting and spinning, designing new garments (so, calling for test knitters), running giveaways, etc.

Keeping this blog is a long held dream for me - my goal is to post once a week. Keep me honest!

So, pictures, I know. Here's what's currently going on for me -

This is a small part of the spinning I am doing for the Spindlers group on Rav - which, by the way, add me! My username is "loosestrings." This is for a themed spin-off - Happy Thoughts and Pixie Dust. These pictures don't do it justice, it's a beautiful fiber dyed by Neauveau. It's going to be my second 3 ply, chain plyed yarn ... but first PLANNED 3 ply.

This was my very first, done on a whim because I wanted to figure out how to preserve color variations for the Pixie Dust yarn....

I'm definitely addicted to chain plying. So much more fun than the normal method. Ha.

That's all for today! :)
