I am knitting and crocheting. Not much spinning though. No pictures lately. Two of my classmates are pregnant, so I am busy making baby blankets for that. I am also working on a quilt for R's mom. It is a pinwheel alternated with solid squares. All the different fabrics are cats or dogs. It is really cute. It is to the point now in the piecing of the top that it is getting very large! Some of the points are not coming out right, so that is frustrating. It is in the corner while I decide what to do with it.
My aunt just sent me some very cool pictures. One of them is a horse dusted with snow. I will have to ask her if I can put that one up here.
Talk to you later, and happy knitting (and quilting!)

I have been knitting. Most of the projects are on my Ravelry page. I have also been spinning, both on my wheel and I tried spindling again, and I love it. I currently have a subcription to tisjewelart fiber club. She has sent me the most wonderful batches of fiber! I have been spinning those on my wheel. I koolaid dyed some fiber and silk and have been having fun spinning those up. The "light fire" on my Raverly stash page is my dye job.
Since I have a job in the medical field, I needed some scrubs. I don't know where all my other scrubs are that I packed about a year ago are, so I made some scrub tops today.
I have been working on some lace from "A Gathering of Lace" It is called "A beginner's triangle". I am using Bernat's Soy Natural Blends. It is so soft! I had to go back and three more because I only got three, and they were on clearance at Michael's. The whole shawl is only going to cost me $12. SWEET! I love it when I can make something that large for that cheap.
