Sing of Joy!

One of my goodies from Woodland Woolworks arrived today. Just in time for knitting night with the PDX Knitbloggers. I gave her a test run after doing some minor assembly and plenty of lubrication and she spins very nicely. I'll still do most of my work on the Louet but at least I can take Joy with me to knit night and to fiber festivals and on the plane to distant lands.

Sometimes when the evening falls I don't want to think too much while I'm doing some knitting. Blue Moon Fiber Arts put out a new colorway for the Doctors Without Borders during the Yarn Harlot's book signing. I like them -- helping people in need without politics. They're willing to go in where some agencies won't to help out the sick and injured. So I picked up a skein. I wasn't sure if I would like the colors but it's been nice mindless knitting and I'm liking the way that it's striping. They're not on BMFA's website yet but they will.

Oh, it's an Ashford Joy. That took me an embarrassingly long time to get. Congrats on your very portable wheel!

I hope you're still flying high from your serenade of the Harlot. I'll see her Saturday!
