Spinnin’ and Bakin’

I am getting ready to knit the elizabeth zimmerman surprise baby jacket for a friends new baby-http://knitting-gnome.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/sweater-hello-yarn.jpg and I decided to spin the yarn for the project.

I bought a 1 lb of lambswool roving:

and have managed to spin half a bobbin so far..lol…
brown handspun

This fiber is kinda dirty so I will have to give it a good washing when I get it spun up.
And in the spirit of the holidays I decided to bake some neiman marcus cookies and gift them out since the batch makes over 100 cookies…I have to go buy the ingredients and actually make them now.

I worry about the environment. I cloud gaze often. I dream of the sea. Doodler. Waitress. Nomad of sorts. River swimmer. I have a small westie named Lulu that I sleep with like a stuffed animal. And maybe one day they will say, "and who was she really anyway?"
