I brought home a new toy yesterday.
Isn't it pretty? It's a Schacht Matchless and I had the opportunity to bring one home from my class to play with for the last week and I had to take it back yesterday. It just so happened that the shop had some that were just waiting to be taken to their new homes. This one wanted to come home with me.
I've been spinning all day today. This is the roving I chose for my first spin on the wheel.
It's some superwash merino from The Dyeing Arts that I picked up at The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling. It has two ounces of two different colorways that go well together. One is a rainbow, the other is blues, greens and purples. I'm trying to get sock yarn. So far, I think I'm close.
Yesterday was a big day. I also rode my bike up a mountain and I lived to tell about it. As far as mountains go, it wasn't a really steep one, but since I have never ridden my bike up a mountain before and my training this winter has consisted mainly of knitting, it was a good one to start with. We rode from north Boulder to Jamestown.

Summer has finally made it to Colorado. I turned off the heat yesterday and opened up the window. The kitties were very happy, or crazy, it's hard to tell. Fresh air does strange things to the kitties.
