New fibers

Seagulls on New Buffalo Beach in October.

New fibers are going to arrive for my spinning pleasure soon. I visited Shell's Etsy Shop and bought 2 colors of hand-dyed BFL to spin. That is going to yield some marvelous socks I'm thinking =)

I went to the bookstore today and stocked up on knitting mags. I am really excited about a couple of them; one I ended up not purchasing was the current issue of Verena. I didn't see one pattern in there that interested me.

I also bought the second book in the "Twilight" series. Where has this great series been all my life?! I must be living under a rock, since I just now heard of this from a coworker. I loved the first book, and for a Christmas gift, DH will be taking me to see the movie and then going out to eat. Maybe tomorrow!

This book has actually reinvigorated my desire to write fiction. I mean, if someone can take something like vampires, and write them into a love story fraught with danger, and make it enjoyable and engrossing and somehow believable...well, it's just inspiring to me. After years of non-fiction reading as part of my job and training, it feels great to return to fiction!

It may be a few days before I post again, though there is one post scheduled for Monday. Happy New Year everybody.

I have been living under that rock next to you. I never knew about it till Dawn went jiggy wiggy over so I just bought book 1.

I hope you enjoy the roving!

Thanks Shell! I'm very excited to get some new wool to spin! Winter makes me want to spin and spin, and your rovings look lovely! (I love BFL)
