Business Unusual

It is absolutely amazing what we knitters can do with our hands. This past weekend, I took a step further and became a spinner. Behold my first yarn ever!

Isn't it atrocious! Hey, I'm just keepin' it real folks! Needless to say that I didn't expect to have my first handspun yarn look beautiful anyway. Nonetheless, I am super glad I did this, mainly because it was one of my New Year's Resolutions to learn how to spin. The only bad thing is that I got somewhat bored and frustrated with the spindle and have since gotten the itch to buy a wheel. Now I don't know much about wheels or which one to get and quite frankly, I'm doing a lot of other non-knitting related things in my life that would keep me from purchasing my own wheel. I did get to spin on a friend's wheel for a short while some time ago and I sure did like it. Maybe I'll get it later on this year. Any suggestions?

Non-Knitting Related Thing

For the past couple of weeks I have been working on a side project that has been keeping me away from posting as often as I would like on this here blog. Though it is not knitting related, I think it could help more than just us knitters. It is a website (click here to see it) that features weight loss and nutritional products. I wasn't too sure about posting about it on the blog because I didn't want to mix business (the website) with pleasure (the blog). But I thought well there could be some one of you that may be looking for a weight loss solution or a healthier alternative to coffee or soda for energy. Therefore, this will be the first and last time I will mention it. Go and fiddle around, tell me what you think. Tell a friend and see if they would be interested in it too. I hope you all like it.

Well that's all for now. I got to get back to working on my side project.
