Fiber Goodness & Gracie's Award

Lookie what I found in my mailbox! This is 4oz of BFL roving in the Mermaid colorway, purchased from Kathy in her etsy shop. I pestered her about dying some fiber to add to her store & she was sweet enough to accommodate me. She even sent a little mini sample of another color. Sneaky she is, sending little samples so I'll want more, as if I didn't already! If only I had the money available, I would have bought every bit of her lovely fiber! I am knitting, but on another secret project. Hopefully I'll have that finished up in the next couple of weeks & I can get back to my spinning. My little wheel is taunting me from across the room!

I also received another award from (Not So) Cynical Knitter. The 2009 Gracie's Golden Blogger Award. I am truly honored! I've met so many wonderful people the past couple of years in blogland. And she is definitely one of the best! And Gracie is just a cutie pie!

And her very first downloadable pattern is now available on Ravelry!The Go Steelers Lace Scarf, that Gracie is modeling in the photo here.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was good, just went by way too fast! Can you believe it, it was 76 here today!!!

Congrats on the award.
Sneaky? Me? Nah!!!! Just wanted to give you a bit to experiment.
Enjoy your spinning and I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Thanks for the plug:)
