Is the Rain Washing Away your Vibrant Color Yarn Mood?

Rain has been flooding us out here! It seems like the gray days has put me behind in everything. You'd think with the lack of color outside I'd be spreading good cheer and brightness with some vibrant new yarns. Not so...look at my newest creation made straight from my drop spindle:

It may be gray, but it sure is pretty! It is tencil and merino. It has that lovely shimmer that the camera never captures correctly.

This new yarn has a dab of color. It's 100% Merino and super soft. The colors are white, purple, and green. All looking rather washed out, as the weather has made us all feel!I am SOOOO ready for some football! New team for my oldest this year. He is now playing for our middle school team. Woohoo! His first game was last Saturday and we won. Oh yeah! Nice way to start off the season.

It has been quite awhile since I posted anything to the blog. Things here were crazy getting the kids ready for school. Of course there was the maddening boredom that encompasses the kids at the end of the summer. But now I am free! My youngest started Kindergarten and I am free to create and dye and spin all day long. I sure do miss my little helper, but you know...maybe now I'm not in so much danger for being fined for child labor laws. ;)
Talking about missing vibrant colors...well let's not talk about that anymore! This is what is on the spinning wheel as I type. It's literally calling my name in the next room to hurry up and get it finished. It will not be plied. I'm spinning it really thick. So it will be gorgeous when it's done. Lastly, you know how I said I've been behind...well here is this month's Fiber of the Month (for those in the spinning club). I worked up a bit of it, just for fun on my drop spindle.
With the markets winding down for the year, I plan on opening up my Etsy shop once again. Once I get some things posted I'll be sure to share!

OK, on a totally bizarre, and non-fiber related subject. This thing is too weird. It is a Wampus Cat. It is our town's high school mascot. I know, odd.
More to come, super soon! I won't take as long for another update next time....really. ♥
