Wow! I can't believe it. I thought for sure the octupuss was going to win. I would like to thank Larissa from for her help with the creature. Without her kniting knowledge,pattern writing know how, special knit tips,and overall coaching the creature would not have made it into existence. She is the "knit goddess".

Spin challenge #2 hosted be was a doozy.
1) Sketch your wuzzlefubber,state fiber and measurements.
2) All elements of creature must be spun into yarn.
3)creature must be knit/crochet cont. following the dictate of the yarn.
4)yarn can not be cut.
5) The entire skein must be used.

I have never had to caculate exactally how much of what color to spin to make it into something knittable. Wow! my brain was hurting.

spin challenge

Spin Challenge

Here is my entry for the Spin Challenge. We had to make it 1) waterproof or water resistent 2)no animal product and 3)make it soft and knittable or crochetable. I used water resistent coated polyester,vinyl,angelina,dish washing gloves,plastic beads,hand dyed cotten batting,and handmade vinyl flower pods.

Did I mention I did it all on a drop spindle :)

I have finally finished my yarn swap for yarn punk. I hand made a fairy doll and pinned it into the yarn. It has little gnome beads though out it.

Back From Vacation:)

I know I have been a very bad blogger. I went on vacation for about a month down to the lower 48. It was a great trip. One my whole family really needed.
