You spin me right round Baby right round.....

Ok, so my blogging has been on the back burner lately. I have been so busy. My computer lost it's guts and I had to buy a new one. I have upped my training sessions with Sloan to twice a week and trying to spend more time with Max. On a lighter note, I finally got all of my Rock and Shock photos framed and hung, now my hallway wall looks SWEET!

So, I am thinking of trying my hand at spinning. I just think making your own yarn really gives anything you crochet the ultimate "handmade" feeling. I am looking at a kit online and just seeing the fibers you can buy for sooooo cheap just makes me want to do it so bad. Plus, Whore has moved over to the dark side and started knitting....gasp! and handspun yarn just looks nicer knitted. I know I am just enabling her, but what can I do? I saw a huge amount of this beautiful deep purple silk for about 1/10 the price of buying it already made into yarn. I am thinking of trying to spin it into a nice DK weight so she can knit a nice tank or something. We'll see. God knows she will have enough yarn after her B-day trip to Webs. Who knows, maybe I will love it then I can make the yarn and Whore can make the items. I smell Etsy shop!
