Nope, it's the best thing ever.....because this is going to be the new home of

Well , it certainly didn't take long for Scott to become one with his wheel. :)
He spins with determination and ease. I am quite proud of his achievement. And double love his passion for fiber arts. (Imagine that)
Now, we just need a jumbo flyer and a few Niddy Noddies, and ...........oh my!
But look at what Scott made ! Beautiful Alpaca/Angora blend. Soft and beautiful and I can't wait to knit this up! A hat maybe? Hmmmmm. There's enough for a hat for both us..... separate hats of course. LOL

We are a determined lot! Scott has his eye out for a wheel, he not only has the bug to spin..he is damn good at it! And well, I don't need a reason to go to a yarn store...I just need a reason to LEAVE one. As I recall, Scott telling me "Honey, it's starting to snow harder outside. " didn't phase me, I was in the ZONE. THE YARN ZONE. Fiber, and Needles and books, OH MY!
..................So where were we?
We went to Susan's Fiber Shop in Wisconsin. Why so far? Well, we are limited on yarn stores around here....and we wanted to see what all the fuss was at Susan's Fiber Shop. And we did. She has EVERYTHING.Yarn, from everywhere. Spinning wheels.Jewelry Findings. Books Galore. But what I loved the most was.....
|.................I got to play with the sheep!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|I love the texture on the old stone!|
|Aren't they beautiful!|
|It started snowing while I was out there.....it was a perfect moment!|
|Susan later told me this guy was trying to head butt me, but I just thought he was gorgeous!|
