Nothing of interest...unless your my secret pal

I know I've been a little m.i.a. as of lately but I have been keeping myself busy. Since my last post I've finished a pair of cotton socks, and I'm currently spinning up some Crown Mountain Farms fiber (ooo la la). I need to update my pics to flickr before this month is over so I should have a proper post in the very near future.

In the meantime, here is the questionnaire for this fiber swap that I'm participating in, Happy knitting everyone.

1 year
3) How long have you been blending your fibers?
Less than a year
4) What types of blends do you like to make and spin?
I'm mainly a color blender rather than a fiber blender but anything blended with angelina/firestar makes me happy.

I'm not a fan of the short stapled stuff, like cotton and the like.

Thanks for your good wishes on my retirement. I am looking forward to it. I didn't do too well with the magic loop method but I'm still trying to work on socks. Maybe you can give me another lesson sometime soon.
