Isn't she purty?!
She's on loan from Carole; thanks, Carole! Manise brought her to me yesterday morning and Cheryl came over and the two of them gave me a lesson. We sat out on the deck and spun and gabbed for a few hours; it was really great. Thank you, Manise and Cheryl, for spending your Saturday morning with me so that I'd feel comfortable with Alice!
I've said it before and I'll say it again (and probably again and again and again.....) I've met some great people through this little blog of mine!
And now, because Manise said I have to show you, here's a picture of what I spun on Alice:
It's not perfect, but I'm pretty proud of it!
I won't get much spinning done for another day or so; I MUST finish the test knit first; I'm almost done with that though. I can't wait to show it to you. I was able to spin a little bit more while waiting for some clarification on the test pattern though. I don't have a picture (it's really not enough to take a picture of yet), but I think it's coming out pretty good.
