Spinny Spinny Spin

So- for those of you who don't know, I got a new spinning wheel for my birthday *SQUEEE!!!!***
Its a beauty-ful ASHFORD JOY....

(note my little helpers toes in the top corner there)

but had been having a few...problems with it.. mainly i wasn't using it right because my previous wheel was so ghetto. but....Lily managed to help me get things sorted out and now I'm on a roll...

Seriously I might not knit for a while.

Two days in? Look what I've done:

Thats 8 oz of fiber!!! I feel insanely productive.

Now...what to spin next....Maybe I'll let Aimee pick. ($20 I end up with the smelliest fiber in the stash, any takers?)

I live with...how do I put this nicely. A nefarious blanket thief.

No joke, I woke up this morning, the comforter was missing, I was freezing. I look at the floor, and there lies my DOG all cozied up in my blanket....

So to solve this leetel problem. I made her her own! 6 skeins of baby pink Plymouth Heaven later:

A happy little burglar. Lets just hope this solution works. Otherwise, its going to continue to be a cold winter.

I haven't been blogging because the end of last semester? SUCKED. and also, I lost my camera and what fun are pictureless blogs? So, while I am cleaning, and until we can talk about craftying things, I leave you with this:
