My bling selection was pretty bad so I had to remedy it. Now I have a box full of sparkly stuff.
My new stamp and die set is adorable.

That mystery fiber I spun last Monday was Peanut, a Texel X. I bought her/him only last year at the MDSW. Goodness. I should have remembered that. That's not good.
He/she was one of my 2015 TdF projects for crying out loud. I really should have remembered that.
I had dyed fiber all over the place for days. You would have thought I would have at least remembered that.

I can honestly say that the only reason I managed to get it done in time is because of the pattern. It's brilliant and fun. The knitting part flew by so much faster than the spinning part. I even loved the bind off. I've never done an icord bind off before. It looks great and gives the top edge a nice solid feel.
I'll wear the thing for about 10 minutes at the festival and then it will live in my basket for the rest of the weekend.
Back at home it will be tucked into the ever growing pile of festival shawls never to be heard from again. In the meantime I will be fretting about next year's shawl.
It's all good.
Before Regina Marie was dry I had already pulled out another lace WIP to take her place. Aubade is back in production but I have to say it took me a good while to figure out what was going on.

Yesterday at noon I made a list of all the entrants in the April giveaway. There were 17 this time around. I used an online random number generator to find the winner.
The grand prize winner is:
Of course I had too much fun making the card so I made three.
I also had too much fun making lotion bars, so I made three. We all know I have more soap than God so there's plenty to share. Soooooo......I randomly generated two more numbers. The second and third place winners are:
Sgobrien and Mereknits!
The grand prize winner will get all the things I showed in the original blog post (and then some) and the second and third place winners will get a surprise package. All three of you need to message me on Ravelry with your mailing details and tell me if you spin.

I spent a lot of time studying Prince last year.
I'm still not over Bowie.
