Last Friday morning, it was still dark and I was already working upstairs in my weaving/knitting room when I looked up and saw the sunrise. I just had to run and grab my camera to snap a picture of the morning sunrise on the palm trees. Within minutes, it was clouded over and the morning turned to gray overcast as the stormy weather blew in.

Today is a rainy day Sunday, a good day for sitting around knitting and spinning, cozied up in front of a fire. My backyard is full of birds (lesser gold finches and sparrows) running around in the rain. It's hard to see all of the birds, but there must be at least 40 little birds out there skittering around on the ground and on the bird feeders.

Later in the day, I'm expecting two spinning students (Jerry and Megann) for a pre-Super Bowl spinning lesson. And, then I will continue knitting squares for my Lizard Ridge afghan. I went on Ravelry and was amazed to see that this particular project has been posted 489 times. Wow is the only thing I can say!

And in between my obsessive square knitting, I have been dyeing more sock yarn. This is one of my most popular colorways. (#731)

And I am working on hand-dyeing silk/kid mohair and silk boucle which will be sold in Habu's booth at Stitches West with one of my patterns. I am more than excited about this. Takako has an array of amazing yarns in her booth and it's always packed, so it will be a great venue.

So back to my knitting and getting ready for my spinners.

Can't wait to see some of that yarn at the Market! Looks yummy! I'll be there that Friday. I also sent you an email re: buying fiber. :-)
