Barny VS Godzilla

I really don't have anything finished to show. I finished my slippers. They need to be felted. They turned out really nice. I ran out of orange and had to add some of this pink/purple stuff. I ran out of that, so I knit the toes in black. I really like the colors together.

Anyhoo.
I am working on spinning some yarn for a little shawl. I'm not sure if that will happen. I am spinning 4oz of hand dyed Merino. I acid dyed this stuff last summer.

I got the courage up to go to the knitting group meeting thing at Caribou last night. I'm really glad I went. There is a Noodle & co. next door. I got parmasen chicken & mac-n-cheese & a salad. Yummy! There was a bunch of really great ladies there. That store must have the AC blasting, because I was freezing. I brought my monkey socks and this spinning with me.

There is a fiber fest up in romeo this weekend. I can't go. I'm standing up in my friends wedding and we are going to pick out dresses. Mt. Bruce has a bigger one in the fall, I'll try and go to that one.

They are a nice group-- I go to Troy sometimes. Usually I go to Dearborn on Tuesdays.

Hooray, I found your blog! (Ok, because you found mine first!) It was great meeting you, I hope you come back to the 'bou! The Sheep and Wool festival in the fall is definitely bigger, but I'm hankering for some angora fiber, so we're heading up there this weekend. To answer your question about Icarus: it took just over 800 yards!!!

amy- I get myself all nervous about going each week. I chickened out last wednesday. Dearborn is a little too far for me to go to. I live over in Eastpointe.

Amby- I heard you guys talking about your blogs last night. Your Icarus is Beautiful! I've been looking at that shawl since I bought that issue.

I'm glad you got your courage up. We're not quite so scary in person! Great to see you, and I hope to see you again soon. (I was the one who swooped up your chair when you offered it up).

Thanks for tagging me, Coley. You spin so beautifully! I'm spinning up the Spunky Eclectic wool that you got me last summer. I'm almost done with it. Your roving looks beautiful.
