Fiber Friday 10/12/07

I haven't been spinning lately but my pal Stacy has.

This is the homespun yarn she donated for the contest I had a while back - I'm happy to finally share a picture with you.

I think all of my spinning mojo is focused on knitting these days. Yes, I am okay with it. I am happy to be knitting and writing new patterns (tease) lately.

New patterns? Yes, coming soon.

And while we're on the subject of happy, here are some other objects of joy...

Last night I got to go to Crumbs where I scored two cupcakes: strawberry cream cheese and oreo. What can I say except that I have a real weakness for cupcakes?

I also wanted to share a picture of my brother and sister-in-law's puppy Daisy. She is only 9 weeks old!

She is half Labrador and half Labradoodle, which is to say she is 3/4 Lab and 1/4 Poodle. My brother decided she is a "Labradoodle-dor" and I agree.

She's hard to photograph because she is black and never sits still. trust me, she's a cutie.

I say this like a puppy could be ugly. Like you could look at the picture and think, "How terrible! Her coat looks silky soft and I bet she showers kisses on you like it's your birthday." Yes, it's true. She is terrible in that way.

My only real complaint is that there is nothing I can knit for her.

have you seen that e-mail going around entitled "why dogs bite people"? Trust me, it's a good thing there's nothing you can knit for that most adorable canine baby ....

OMG, those are cupcakes?!?! I have to hunt down this Crumbs place.

*kissy faces for the puppy* :D

how do those cupcakes compare to sprinkles??

anne - I have not seen that email, but I can use my imagination. (!)

I should probably do a cupcake review on this blog since I keep eating them. Sprinkles are reasonably sized, yummy, not too sweet, and sophisticated as a cupcake can be. Crumbs are giant, sugary and fun. It depends on the mood which one to get, since they are only ONE BLOCK apart. I love it!

Hi Dani :)
