After frogging the Aran 9 times (!) - you would think that frustration has set in and I would be done with it. Well, truth be told, it has set in - but I refuse to let 2 needles & some yarn crush me like a bug. Sure - it still mocks me, but day by day - row by row - it is becoming a pattern. Challenge can be a 'good thing' ... Just ask Martha.

I want to complete a few more rows - then I will post a picture. In all honesty, after working a lace shawl - I thought this would be EZ PZ! (I can hear it still mocking me from afar!)

My spinning has taken a back seat to all of this ... Hopefully, I will get some done this weekend, as well as some dyEing. I haven't been overly productive in those departments either.

Don't you hate it when one project consumes your very soul?? TAG Me ... You are it!

Well, after frogging the Aran 6 times, I thought I was good to go ... I had 8" done and was *this* close to posting a picture of my work here. Good thing I didn't ... I had done it wrong! So ... back to the Frog Pond it went. I have casted on and this weekend, I hope to start it anew.

Yesterday, I got the most incredible fiber from my friend Nancie (she of soon to be Prairie Point Llama & Alpaca fame!). Take a look, and meet my new friends!

Left to Right: "Pearl", "Bonnie", "Pumpkin" and "Anta".
Look what Anta got himself into!

I love this fiber ... great work Nancie! TAG ME ... you are it!
