So today I finally got to spin my "bump" at my spin class. Tabbethia said I did great but I must say I felt like a spazz. It is not so easy to get the hands feet and eyes all in sync. But here is my pics of my first attempt. I really love spinning. I think I can develop quite a passion for it. I am planning to fininsh my grey bump and then take the spun yarn and make myself a scarf. The yarn may be lumpy and bumpy but I made it and will wear it proudly. So for anyone who is thinking of spinning, go for it. I am so glad I found this place . Now I can finally learn something I have been wanting to learn for quite some time. Now I must order and find fiber to spin.

So anyway I just want to post a few of my fav shops. First of is the Village knitter I love this place. Karen is great and always happy to see you, just go in sit, knit and chat. Plus the yarns and goodies are very reasonably priced. She has latern moon and Debbie Bliss and Alpaca OH MY!!! But really anyone local should check it out, classes galore and lots of goodies that you wont find anywhere else on long island.
Second ins Rumpelstiltskins yarns This is a spinners paradise. Its the only place on eastern long island that has spinning lessons and they have wheels too! I am currently taking lessons and they have wheels to use if you don't have one. Angela is terrific and very warm and welcoming. Tabbethia is the teacher and what a great teacher! The lessons are very thorough and go step by step. She is very patient and explains things in a clear and easy way to understand. So if you are anywhere near either of these 2 shops stop in and say hello. Both shops have completely different fibers and goodies so you wont get bored looking at the same things.

I am trying to get this up and running but it is not so easy for me. I am going to try to put pictures of my craft room on here so bear with me. I waited a long time for my own room but it was worth it. I took my time and took 3 weeks to finish this room and do it the way I wanted it to be. I love purple and funk therefore my room... Also as you can see I have a nice stash and yet still buy more yarn. Also I am really into fairies I have collected quite a few since this was first done. I will post updated pics when I get my camera charged up. So here is my craft room and my beginnings of my blog. The floor I hand stenciled by myself! Ugh my aching back!!! But very worth it.

The walls are all done in crackle and the room looks very old. It has had some changes but thats the overall jist of it. So I will be posting more soon.
