can you guess?

pigeonroof studios bfl in vintage

After questions and comparisons until I was all googly eyed, I pulled the trigger...can you guess what I did? I'll give you more details if I ever have any to share. Let me say I destashed some of my yarn to raise some funds for some silly leap of faith, a serious hobby gamble...wanna place a bet?

I'm still pushing ahead on my February Sweater, kind of dragging through the gull lace bodice. My sweet grandma is having some scary surgery Monday, so I see some knitting time in the future - it's a good distraction in those sterile waiting areas. I'll be knitting and praying. Please pass one my way if you have a spare:)

*btw mama blue has an update tomorrow...just sayin.

You got a wheel!!!! I can't wait to hear all about it. But, don't be toooo enthusiastic. I do NOT have time to get hooked on another hobby right now... :)

hugs to you and your grandma. I'll be sending healing thoughts her way.

Ooh! A wheel! I would love start dyeing roving but I don't know the first thing about it or spinning. Pre-baby I always wanted to learn.

You and your grandma will be in my thoughts. I hope that all will be well very soon.

Oh you are going to love your new wheel! It will absolutly be worth the destashing! Of course now you will start a new stash. I see you've already got some of the crack from Krista.

All of my best thoughts for your grandma's surgery. As one who has spent many an hour knitting in hospitals, I know how it helps.
