Lalalala. . . . beautiful weather in Iowa. . .

Sooo, I'm back home in Iowa City (well my home away from home I guess) and I have already checked out Crazy Girl Yarns, the new knitting store in town. It's really cute & small. Hopefully they'll start selling Gyspy Girl Yarns here so I won't have to go back to IL for them. I bought some new yarn yesterday & purchased some acid dyes, rovings & a drop spin today. I really want to learn how to spin, so hopefully this summer I will in Rockford at Unique Yarns.
Also, I dyed my first skein of yarn, it's 440 yards in superwash wool. Sweet eh? It's drying right now, pics later when my camera is recharged. Oy. . .
Nelow I am entering another knit along, a Harry Potter sock one. Yay! I'm a Badger!!! aaaaaahhhhhh!!!! Damn Wisconsinites! Hufflepuff is actually cool because it's my college colours, sweeettt!!!!
