Happy Samhain/Halloween!

I wanted to drop a quick line and say that I hope everyone has a very safe and fun Samhain/Halloween!

Also, for those of you who have enough time to read an actual blog post and aren't trick-or-treating or passing out candy, here you go!

I have been spinning a lot lately. A....whole...lot! I have waiting at home to be photographed two completely spun bits of yarn. One is a silk/falkland mix that is pink, and another that was a painted roving that is 100% falkland. Wanna see? I knew you did. That's why I'll be adding a photo of them this evening, since the silk/falkland mix is still hanging to dry. Both of them are from my good friend Kae of Faerielady Fibers. So is the green roving.

Speaking of the green roving, I am hereby dubbing this 'Kermit's Guts'.

Also, in closing, here is a picture of a hat that I am sending away to the Soaring Eagles Project.

For those of you who do charity knitting here in Oklahoma, this is a great way to help make kids in Anderson Elementary school in Tulsa (a school with a high number of foster children) who may not have anyone to give them presents for Christmas/Yule feel loved. This is local, run by the Procrastiknitter, a teacher at that Elementary school. If you have time to knit just one hat to contribute, it will be appriciated, especially since we are trying to get together 300+ hats. Warning-this will not be the last time that you hear me talk about this. This is here, this affects children in our state. Go knit a hat instead of reading any more of this post!

Happy Samhain/Halloween!
