pink silk and sunshine


We're having a warm up here on the Ohio River. I love to schlep the Traveller out to the front porch swing, and spin when it's not too hot and not too cold.

The doctors who are helping me establish myself as a Doula are having a baby girl in April. I'm spinning yarn to knit a special hat to put on her, after her first bath. I hate those nylon ribbing things they put on newborn's heads. The yarn will be 1 ply of pink silk and 1 ply of creamy cashmere.

That's pretty cool. Are they gonna let you doula for them? :D

Wow! It was warm enough to spin outside? We were in the 40's and sunny, but we still have snow.

Nice gift! I should make a similar hat for my neice's baby when it arrives in March (argh! I am soon to be a Great Aunt!)

That's one lucky little baby!

Welcome to the Spinning Wheel!
