As I was putting stuff away I came across my spindles. Being the ADD personality that I am I have been spinning on it for the pass two days and finished the 2 ounces. (I split the roving in half -2ounces is about what can fit in my spindle)

A little over a week ago I had to go pick up Code-man from college. One of my best friends just happens to live 5 minutes away from the university. This time I got to see he studio. She is an amazing dyer of yarn. I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out how to sneak her stock out without her knowing:)
The sweetheart that she is ended up giving me two skeins. One for helping her label about 20 skeins. I love it. My girls said it looked like my Loki figure
Yes it does seem to go with him
Then this one is the gift. Pictures do not do justice to the colors of her yarn. I so wished I lived closer. I wound up this skein right away and since it is an aran weight and only one skein I needed something small. I also needed a travel project and wanted something that didn't require too much thinking. So I went to the defaul Graham Hat.

This morning I finished my first Pi sick. Knitting goes fast in thick yarn.
So from left to right are the numbers of Pi represented by number of row in alternating colors.
3 rows of dark green
1 of the lighter green
Continuing on 4159292653589793. The toe isn't included.
I have plenty of yarn left but I am thinking of switching the starting color from dark green to light just to mix it up

I started a new pair of Pi socks yesterday to celebrate Pi day. Of course the day went by so slow that I didn't take a picture of them. So they are a day late.

I try to donate as much as possible and today was my kids elementary school blood drive. It took less then an hour and was painless- really didn't feel the needle at all- and it saves lives. Donated blood saved my brother and I's life. It's my way of saying thank you.
