Meet "Miss Millie"

She's here she's here, my Majacraft Millie is here. I got my wheel on Friday and have been spinning away over the weekend. All three bobbins are full :) Now I just have to empty them so I can spin some more.

There are a couple of scratches on her but nothing major.

I have also been watching a lot of the Olympics and Knitting a bit. My Bird in hand mitts are coming along. I will take pictures of those as soon as there is some sun in these parts. I should be finished with them in a couple of days. I am also working on my sock pattern and writing it up and knitting it. I don't know if it will be done before the Olympics are over but maybe shortly after.

I also got some lovely things in the mail this last week. My Woolgirl sock club came. I think this is my favorite so far. If you want to see spoiler pictures you can check here. I also got some Spunky Eclectic Roving from somebody on ravelry. I loved this roving when I first saw it and it was one of the reasons I joined Spunky's club. It's called "Flowering Weeds" and it was the June shipment.

On the family note...nothing really new there. Just the fact that I found out how sneaky my little one is. I went to go check on the boys in there room and I left Cierra in the living room. When I got back to the living room she wasn't there. I called her and no answer. I checked the kitchen and there she was with a box of Goldfish crackers snacking right out the box. She didn't even dump them out. It was too funny! Thank goodness I don't have anything dangerous in any of the cabinets that she can get to...let's just say I learned not to put things down there with my first kid :)
Caught in the Act :)

Sneeky little CiCi :)

Hope that everyone is doing well. I will try and check back in sometime this week. Thanks for stopping by. Happy knitting, spinning or crafting in general :)

Millie's a beauty!

OH yay for a new wheel. Isn't spinning the best? It's the ultimate in instant gratification and makes knitting feel painfully slow.

Cierra's little face cracks me up.
