"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

As I said.....

I saved the best for last!

At least I think so.  I am a total sucker for browns. 
214 yards of squishy worsted weight.  This is another FatCatKnits SuperWash Merino, colorway Petey Pete - from my son.  Last Christmas braid.  Now - to decide what to knit up with these lovelies....  Not sure which part is more enjoyable - spinning or knitting with handspun.  I suppose it depends on the day.

I have our first green bean harvest cooking on the stove today.  DH tells me his tomato plants are sitting in water....part of the garden is swamp land.  We've had 7 inches of rain in the last 5 days.  More is predicted for tomorrow.   So far our basement is dry.  We have lived here since 1977, and only once did we have wet basement problems.  That was in 2008.  I don't ever want to deal with that again!

Robin asked about the cowl pattern.  As soon as I am at liberty, I will share information.  I think it will eventually be available on ravelry - but it may be a bit of a wait.

Thanks to all who left opinions regarding the Woolee Winder.  It should be en route to my house by Wednesday!!!  YAY!!!!!  I can hardly wait to play with my new toy!  DH is sooooo good to me!  :)
 Opps - I forgot....this is the original fiber, in case you want the before/after comparison.

Beautiful spinning, Kathy. I can't wait to see what you make from these latest yarns. Sorry it's been so wet; we've yet to see 75 degrees this year. The weather is very strange lately.
