My New Drop Spindle!

I got this new Drop Spindle at the Florida Fiber In! I am enjoying learning how to spin fiber into yarn. It will be awesome to make something from it. It will be completely handmade! Thank you Barry for getting it for me! I love you so much. You are a wonderful man to support me in my fiber habits!

I Made This For You!

Week 2 HSKS-12

For Week 2 of the HSKS swap, I was asked  what 5 things would I not leave home without if I were going into hiding,  and WHY.

1. An Alpaca- Because then I would have fiber to spin, or to use to make many things.
2. Sissors- I would need a way to get the fiber off of the Alpaca.
3. A comb- To comb out the fiber to get ready to spin!
4. My drop spindle- to spin the yarn.
5. My Addi Turbo Clicks- to knit my handspun yarn.
Alpaca fiber can be very useful. I would have everything I would need to make my own clothing. That is why I would want these 5 things :o)

Our first assignment is to get to know those in all the Wizarding Families. Here are the questions I needed to answer.
Someone with the same craft as you is Sinknitty. I knit, crochet, and sew.
Someone who was born in the same month as me is Kauraqt. July.
Someone from a different country is AnnKingstone.I'm from U.S.A.

A new HSKS Family member is Mrsmama. Me too.
Someone who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps is Girlywithatwist.
Someone who has a bigger stash than you! (And if your stash is the biggest, proudly say so! is Angel101580. I have a small stash.
Someone who both knits and crochets is LAFisher. Me too!
Someone who has the same favorite color as me is Smartchick. Mine is Green.
Someone who has the same favorite season/holiday as me is Bartlebean Mine is Spring and We share Christmas as the holiday.
Someone who has the same favorite fiber as me is Cyancoment. It's Alpaca.

I also found out that there is 3 of us that are twins in the families. Two of them are a set. I need to get my twin sister in this group next time :). There is also another member that has a son named Aidyn born in 2005, I have a son named Aidan born in 2005. It is fun to fin interesting facts about everyone! If only I could find someone that has Spring as a favorite season I would have my questions completely answered.

HSKS12 Harry Potter Swap!

I am going to be apart of the HSKS12 Swap! (If you are not on Ravelry you will not be able to see this site) I am in the Draco's Pure Bloods and Dark Arts Family! I am so excited. I like the Harry Potter story line and if I were to pick a  character I really like it would be Ron. It may be because I like red hair. (I have red hair) but, I do like all of the characters just the same! I also don't have a favorite house. I like to cheer everyone on, except for today since I am now apart of a new house I will stick by my Draco Pure Bloods and Dark Arts Family!
 This is going to be so much fun!

This is my wand I will be using to cast spells on everyone to have a good swap.
I got this wand at the wand shop and it choose me! I picked it up just to see what they looked like, then when I found the store keeper they went right to my wand and handed it to me and said this is your wand. It was amazing! 

Here is Hogwarts Castle. It is amazing inside. If I get a chance soon I will go inside and take pictures. The have portraits on the wall where the people in them actually move.
They have Butter Beer! The frozen one is the best! I can't wait to spoil my spoilee! I am going to have so much fun deciding what to get them!
