I guess it's my day for completing projects. I have some extra time between jobs.

Completed Pillow

I just completed this pillow. It was supposed to be a present for a friend of mine who's getting married, but I'm not sure it's good enough for a present.

Looking for fiber?

I was contacted by a friend from Bear411 who has a friend who raises llamas and alpacas (among other critters). He's looking to sell fiber and is new at it.

Blocking. YIKES!

Okay Boyz,

Am ready to block a bunch of projects... 2 scarfs, a neck warmer and a shawl...

Never having "blocked" before, I thought I would ask the experts.

Help!?!?!

Thoughts!?!?!
