I'm such a slacker!!!

Hi all just in case you didn't see yet...I am back up and running on ravelry. I haven't been knitting much but I did finish a pair of socks tonight.
Woolgirl sock club 2008 Yarntini sock yarn in "Plum Blossom" colorway
Pattern: from Knitting Vintage socks by Nancy Bush "Gentleman's Fancy Sock"

I've also been doing a little spinning. Here is what is on my bobbins.

Crown Mountain Farms in "We are the Champions" colorway

I am trying to make my first 3ply sock yarn. I think I might be spinning a bit to thick but we will see. I am loving it so far.

I also got my April shipment from the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club. I love this colorway. It has all my favorite colors in it, especially blue :). It is Superwash Corriedale and 10% nylon...I am hoping to make sock yarn out of this too.

I leave you with a picture of the kiddos. It was so cute. The boys gave Cierra a controller for the playstation...to make it seem that she was playing the game with them. They were actually playing the Nintendo game cube :) Aren't they sweet. Just wait til she figures it out. She will throw a fit!

I will try and post more regularly but like I always say...don't hold your breath you might turn blue :) Thanks for the comments and emails. Happy knitting, spinning and crafting.
