My so called personality

I saw this at Sue's Blog and decided to take the test. Well.... I agree with some of it.

Your Personality Is
Artisan (SP)

You are both grounded and flexible. You adapt well to new situations. You are playful and free spirited - but you are also dependable and never flaky.
You don't do well in conservative, stuffy situations.It's probably very hard for you to keep a normal job or stay in school.
You are always up for fun and adventure. Most people are too boring for you.You take risks and bend the rules. And if things don't work out, you chock it up to life experience.
In love, you tend to take things quickly - but you have a huge problem with commitment.
At work, you need to make your own rules. You're best suited to be an entrepreneur.
With others, you are animated and physical. You prefer doing something with friends to just hanging out.
As far as your looks go, you tend to be buff and in good shape. Your spend more time on your body than your clothes.
On weekends, you need to keep active. From cooking up a storm to running a 5K, you wear yourself out.

Green Gable

Another project I'm working on is the Green Gable Top by Zephyr Style. Yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Spryte which I absolutely love. I even joined the KAL for this one, hoping that it will motivate me to finish this project quickly.

Spinning Goodies

A few things I picked up at the LYS to feed my new habit when I stopped by the other day.

Lady Eleanor Progress

Lady E is coming along slowly.

It took a few tries to get the hang of Entrelac but it's really easy to do and a lot of fun.

The yarn is Noro Kureyon
Colorway 146

I'm going to try and do a few tiers each day as I really want to finish this before it gets too warm.

Braided Mischief Scarf Completed

I am just getting around to posting this but I did complete the braided mischief scarf from Scarf Style awhile ago.

More Spinning

Yesterday was my second spinning class. I must say spinning is a challenge but it is a lot of fun. I realize that it's something that I have to practice at and I plan to. Here's a little something that I actually spun, ugly isn't it?

However I plan on getting better at it. I brought a wheel home with me. I tried two wheels at the class, an Ashford Traditional and a Louet. I liked spinning on the Louet better and decided to go with the S17 model. It's unfinished so eventually I'll get around to staining it. It's also compact and easy to store.

I also came home with bag of roving and a Niddy Noddy. So, I'm on cloud 9. The class was great and a wonderful introduction to spinning. I now know what it means to draft, spin, ply, set the twist, etc. I'm gonna have a blast with my new hobby.

I'm Spinning

Actually, I'm kind of spinning. I took a class at the LYS Woolbearers yesterday. It was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. It looked easy watching the instructor. But I'm very uncoordinated and was horrible at it. We were introduced to the drop spindle and also various types of wheels.

I'll attend class again next Saturday, hopefully I'll do better. It was a lot of fun and I will practice as time allows with the drop spindle.

Ready for Lady Eleanor

I'm almost ready to start the Lady E stole from Interweave's Scarf Style. I received the Noro Kureyon yarn that I ordered from Webs when it was on sale a few weeks ago. I will cast on as soon as I'm done with Braided Mischief.
