Spinning on a Wintery Day

This was a day to hunker down by the fireplace and spin. ♫♪♫ The weather outside is frightful ♪♫♪ Yesterday it was in the 40s and water was seeping into the barn. Tonight it's 12 with winds at 20 mph. This is Michigan!

This is the yarn that is on my wheel up above. I finished it up, took some pictures, put them in my Etsy store, washed the yarn, came back to my computer and it was sold. Will be off to California in the morning when it's dry.

And this is a cute little hat that I knit up with some of Sharon Winsauer's cochineal dyed alpaca. You really should click on that link and go see the awesome new butterfly shawl pattern that she recently created. The woman amazes me. I couldn't even knit those lace patterns, let alone create the actual pattern.
I just spent 15 minutes trying to get that writing off the side of the hat pict. Sorry.....

Looks like a great spot for spinning! It's been cold here in Missouri, too. Ten degrees this afternoon. Brrr!

Hello, Just stopping in to see what you are up to ..... what a great setting for spinning your beautiful yarn. Nice to know that you are as busy as ever!

Check out my new website: I just completed it last month and a big"woowhoo"! I sold 2 aprons off of it already!

Stop by sometime - my blog: Wish you continued success.

Hey Buddy,

Your spinning corner by the fireplace is such a COZY spot! I'm glad you put it on your blog! Stay warm and well friend! I hope you are all plowed out after the blizzard and post blizzard drifting!! What a white Christmas we will be having...and more snow on the way! Too bad we don't have a sled for Ivan to pull...I think he'd love it!!

Warming Hugs,
