Knitting, Crocheting, and Spinning

As if I weren't crazy enough with the cross stitch, I've recently become addicted to yarn crafts, specifically crocheting and knitting.  Because one can't just buy yarn or thread, I've also decided to start spinning and making my own yarns.  So, about a month ago, my friend Tara and I went out and bought a couple of fleeces, spent some time learning how to wash, dry, and card them.  We both bought spinning wheels, and now we're spinning fools.  Well, she spins very well, and I'm the fool.  I'm not good at it--yet--but I have a great deal of fun with it.

I should probably try to figure out how to change the name of my blog, but I'd rather be spinning or crocheting or knitting.  Look for pictures soon!
