Mr. BLUE got super attention the last 2 weekends!

Now before your yarn hearts scream, remember that I am new to Spinning and I  am finding it difficult to keep consistency.  In reading spinning books, watching  youtube videos and purchasing video’s on How To spin, I am assured that I will get better over time! And I am starting to see it my self.  Just look for yourself:

Can you see what I see? Happy dance! I am getting better and I think Mr. BLUE is happy at the amount of time I am spending with him. If I ignore him for too long, he tends to let me know. Example; I was knitting on what seems to be my never-ending blanket and he happens to roll off the table! (I wasn’t by the table) and he knows I will pick him up because I have rugs +dog which means… yup you guessed it!  Dog hair in my FIBER!  The horror especially because I am not making yarn out of my dogs hair. And let me tell you, I damn well should.  He sheds so much I will never run out of something to spin! Hahaha.

I know, I know where are the knitting pics women!
But there is not much to show right now.  I am making progress on my never-ending blanket

And I have to thank Tru, from “the artsy knitting Podcast.”  She started a KAL that is about Whipping the WIPPIES.  And I have to say I am so happy that I joined in on this because this has helped me to do a couple of things.  1. To sort through my Wippie stash and see what projects I want to work on and what projects I wanted to frog. And 2. Help me stay focused.
Basically the KAL is to finish at least 4 WIPPES(Works in Progresses) before you Cast on a new project.  The KAL started July 10th and goes until August 18. If you need a little bit of support to stick to working on your WIPS join the chatter on Ravelry. Com and search for: the artsy knitter podcast. She is amazing when it comes down  to giving support! 
Anywho, here are the WIPPIES that I am doing for the KAL
