I'm a Spinster!

Sorry for the long time between posts. David took the camera on his "class trip" to Europe, so I can't take any pics! And I do have things to take pics of! I've been spinning so much, it's so relaxing and fun. I think I'm getting better. I'm going to try to scan some skeins of yarn on my scanner later, but I'm not sure how that's going to work out. I'm ready to buy a whole fleece -- I can't wait until the next fiber fest!
I didn't want to leave you with NO pics, so here's one of some of my Italian ancestors -- this must have been taken in the late 1920's. I know the girl standing on the right is my grandfather's first cousin Italia, and she looks to be about 14 in that pic. His cousin Leah is also in the pic, but I can't pick her out. See, this sheepy thing is in my blood!

You're right, it is in your blood. It's amazing how things will come around full circle. Looking forward to seeing some of the stuff you've done.

Such a cool picture. I wish my family took pictures of things like us standing in front of sheep instead of dorky matching t-shirts in front of our fireplace. Ugh. Yeah, it's long been established that in yarn, Italians do it better. Period.
