Navajo Ply!

Just finished my first Navajo Ply! I believe this will be my new favorite. The colors are amazing and the fiber is so much more stable.

Got down to the business of spinning again last night. I had spent a few days at the property in Yachats ( Cloud 9 ) and had done some knitting and reading. Both of which I needed to catch up on! I so love this life called Summer right now :) Here's what I did at Cloud 9 and a view of being there.

Got the toilet fixed so I could knit!

HEY HEY! WOOHOO! We got the toilet fixed so I could knit! Good thing I have AC, it was 101* here yesterday. If we didn't have that I couldn't have even thought about knitting. I'm working on a scarf pattern with some of my homespun. Its the new Spin-Off magazine, had to figure out how to do a CDI= Center Double Increase. Found it online through a video. Thats a new one for me. This scarf is really a cool design. I'll post a picture when I get a bit further along. Happy Day and Knitting

Summer Joy!

Well today I was hopping to enjoy knitting and spinning. I finally figured out how to do a Center Double Increase! WOO HOOOO!
Think I may just go dig a Biffy!
Instead..... We have a leaking toilet! All the nerve! How on earth can the toilet leak at a time like this? I have work to do. I need to knit! Then I need to spin. I have fiber calling my name! Tammie, Tammie..... Really now can you even believe the nerve of that toilet?

We are on the count down to Cloud 9. We leave in 2 days to prepare for the big family reunion. The hamburgers and hot dogs have been bought. The wine is in the fridge. What more will we need other than the wonderful family to show up?! I'm just really loving this Summer. No work, hang'n with the boys. Lots of spinning and catching up on my reading! I'm reading Lady of the Butterflies, by Fiona Mountain. One of those Costco finds. Its interesting at this point..... Here's a picture of my latest spin.

Boys are all home from Camp

We got the boys home from Camp. They were stinky and dirty and full of fun tales! The joy of boys and camp tales. Dinner was interesting that night with all the stories being told. Next is a big family reunion at Cloud 9. We all can hardly wait. One last big family meeting yesterday at Mom and Dads to finalize the plans.

I love Summer :)
