Spin Challenge #2- WUZZLEFUBBER
1. sketch your wuzzlefubber and state your fibers and measurements.
2. all elements of the creature must be spun into the yarn.
3. creature must be knit/crocheted continually, following the dictate of the yarn (meaning knit the arm when you get to the "Arm" section of your yarn, wether you want to or not)
4. the yarn can not be cut.
5. the entire skein must be used
I wasn't too sure how to knit this thing, so far any good knitter is going to say what the hell are you doing but it was the only way I knew how to make the legs and not cut the yarn. I have to say that my measurements are off a bit. But oh well.
All creatures will be posted at the Yarn Museum and voting begins next week.

My Beach Baby Yarn hangs in the Yarn Museum, in the No Wool exhibit. I was pretty happy with the results of this spin. Spun out of hemp fibers, muslin, pink sparkle and fabric flowers. I want to knit it up into a summer hand bag. I just have to find the right handles first. Click the link to the museum to check out more shots of my yarn and lots of other skeins!!!

From our front yard we were able to see Carlisle's fireworks, several different displays on the South Mountain and these must have been right over the hill in Bloserville. So now we know, we don't have to go into town to get a good show.

Our newest addition to the family!! This is Adder. She is just about 5 months old. She came from the farm on the other side of our lane.
She is a little sad and confused about the move. She's trying to play with the goats, but they aren't really sure of her.
The pups are very interested, as she is with them. They were nose to nose through the fence, checkin' each other out.
Now, if you're wondering about the name....See the goats are all named after white flowers, Snowdrop, Cosmo & Hawthorn. We wanted to carry that tradition along with the sheep too and what better name for a black sheep than Adder, now we have the Black Adder. ( That is totally for the BBC fans!!)

I've also started a scarf for The Knit before Christmas - Christmas at Sea Program. The Knit Before Christmas is the blog of the Seamen’s Church Institute’s volunteer knitting program, Christmas at Sea. This program has been going strong since the Spanish American War, but this knitting blog has only just begun. If you're interested in finding out more visit: http://blogs.seamenschurch.org/about/

My card art was published in the "Catch Up Issue" of Stampers' Sampler!!!! I had submitted 2 enteries last Aug. for the October issue. When that issue came out and I had not made the cut I was bummed, and got in a funk about not submitting anything else. BUT I just recieved this extra issue in the mail yesterday. My subscription doesn't include this issue...I got super excited... and there it was, or should I say there THEY WERE!!! Both submissions were published in this super issue.
This is a great issue with over 500 project, samples and ideas. Check it out at: http://www.stampington.com/html/inside_catchup_11.html

Well, it's finally happened, we bought the farm. I mean we're finally getting out of the over priced, rat race environment we live in now and we're moving on to bigger and better things. The pups love the freedom - Aj loves it a little too much, but it's wonderful.
The move has begun. It'll be a long, long road until we are completely settled but worth every minute.

I searched forever for a great pattern and the one I love is from Knitty.com here is the link. http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTbacktoschool.html
I changed the text and art but stuck with the same knit pattern for the body of the cloth. Totally worth checking out.
