Wow

I contacted the maker of the drum carder that I have and they are going to mail me the assembly and user instructions. I was thinking I would have to buy them which I had no problem doing.

I finished my first new design, no pictures yet as I am rearranging my living room so I can set up a fairly dedicated photo area instead of using the kitchen table. I am also hoping to purge a few items.

Have a Happy Easter!!!

Drum Carder Arrived!!!

My drum carder arrived today. It is a clemes & clemes. It looks like the company hasn't made them for a while but may be starting to again. I haven't started to try to put it together yet, but will this weekend. I wanted to put a finish on it first, so it needs to dry. It has no instructions, but I think I will ask the original maker if they would sell me a copy of them.

I also just heard that my shipment of doorprizes and items for goody bags have arrived at the lady setting up SeaSocks '08. I sent them 140 handstamped cards and 3 knitting bags. I wish I could go on the cruise, but maybe next year.

Meghan was the fearless volunteer that will let me coat her foot in duct tape. We have not set up the photo shoot date, but keep an eye out for that tutorial.

Coming soon: Duct tape foot tutorial and Pics of my Drum Carder!

Lots of stuff!

I also accidentally won a drum carder on Ebay. I actually didn't expect to win it, as it was only at $219. which included shipping and insurance. I haven't gotten it yet, but I can't wait!!! Here is the link to the auction. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290210764008 So Cool I can't wait to get it and start playing!!!










This is my current sock in progress. But the cool thing is that white tube like thingy that it is in. A friend made that for myself and a few other friends. It is so cool and works great. I bet I could store 2 socks in progress in it. Thanks Aime and John!!!










This is some of my most recent handspun yarn. The base wool is from brown sheep roving and dyed with jacquard acid dyes and then I spun it up. No idea on the WPI or yardage. I have some more, but no pictures yet.










This is my snow ball fight package I got from my Stuff Knitters Gotta Have Exchange Group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/StuffKnittersWantandGottaHave_Exchange/I have to say I have always had great exchanges on this group so would remend it to anyone who was interested. And this was a great exchange as well! Thanks Sue!










Ladie with his new most favorite toy. It isn't actually a dog toy, it is a halloween decoration that he found. I figure it is ok that he play with it as I supervise him really well when I let him play with it. I always know when it is his favorite toy because he actually brings it to me to play with him with it.

Ok this should make up for my lack of posts. I am hoping to do a tutorial on how to make a duct tape foot dummy in the near future, but have yet to find a willing vict...um...volunteer.
