Invasion of the Pink Pixies!

First off -- I know I suck at blogging. I would love to get to it every day, but I find it nearly impossible. Flickr might just be teh answer to my prayers -- the interface rocks!

And the fact that I got onto Ravelry
and started a business
both in the month of June might be largely to blame as well. Add two children and *poof!* there goes all my free time out the window! I suppose it is more fun to spin and knit that it is to write about spinning and knitting!


So the lovely skein of yarn pictured here: It is spun from The Spinning Bunny Pixie Batts. Light to medium pink, 190 yards, 108 g/3.75 oz, 12wpi. The contents are targhee, merino, along with some of the following: angora, alpaca, silk and angelina!

I tried to spin this woolen, and I think I did a pretty good job, but I am really not sure. The simple fact is, I think I would greatly benefit from a one-on-one class to learn the lingo and techniques. I think I am doing wonderfully on my own, but I know I will improve much faster with some instruction than fumbling along on my own.
