From your friendly July Mod

So we're a little over a week into July, and at last count we have 1292 items. Not too shabby!

I just wanted to tell you all that you're awesome, and to keep up the good work.

And in personal news, I just ordered myself a spinning wheel! (Oh, the shinyness!) It's a graduation present from my parents, and it should come in the next few days. And the wheel is coming with some free roving. So maybe I'll spin a ball up for charity, and give it to some worthy person to knit/crochet with. My guess is that it won't be too glamorous, probably a "thick and thin" type of yarn. Though who knows- maybe it will be the perfect skein.

Ok. Let's see. How about the first person to comment (I'm posting to both LJ and blogspot at the same time) gets my firstspun skein from the wheel, assuming it's something knitable? You can use it to make an item (or part of an item or multiple items) for whatever charity/ies you choose. Sound good?

I also have some things planned in the realm of knitting and crocheting. Besides the cat blanket I finished yesterday, I have a few surprises up my sleeves...maybe I'll post them all on July 31st! But I think we can hit 1650.
