No No Kitty Yarns! Yay!

I ordered some roving from Daniel over at No No Kitty Yarns when she had her first sale for closing up shop back in December. I had asked her to wait until after the holidays to send it as I would be out of town and didn't want the package sitting outside for days. I e-mailed her earlier this week, checking in on the order, because it dawned on me that I didn't tell her when I'd be back. Turns out we both forgot, and she sent it out right away: You're probably thinking, "Roving? You just started knitting seriously just before Halloween, surely you don't know how to spin already?" And you'd be right. Nope, dunno how to spin. Do I want to try? Yeah, I do now. Will it be any time soon? Nope, probably not. Am I worried? Nope. I like to just look at this stuff and touch it and pet it, and yes, I shall call it George.

Pretty roving, pretty stitch markers. George seems like the type who will wait till you're ready to make a commitment.

George is gorgeous, I'd definitley just sit and stroke it too.

I know someone who doen't even knit tht took up spinning recently. She's really good at it. Hope yours goes just as well.

Bezzie I feel like I've been quoting that far longer than it's probably been around, but I believe it's from Animaniacs. The little red-headed brat girl said it every time she came across a new furry animal she wanted to keep as a pet. It greatly amused me.
