THAT DARN DAVE!

If you have not gone to his blog yet, you need to! Dave Daniels is a knitter, spinner, photograph and cute kitty Dad. lol...

I say that DARN DAVE because for years, long before I started knitting (July 07)...I have admired those that spin their own fiber...and then crochet or knit from the yarn that they spun and plyed...I have carefully avoided getting too interested in spinning because my yarn stash is way out of control...I mean WAY over the top huge...but then along comes Mr. Daniels who is not only a talented knitter...he also has a great eye for color (check out his dyed yarn for sale)....he also dyes his own roving and then spins and plys it himself...

He has the nerve to promote his hand spun, gorgeously dyed yarn on his blog...showing of how beautiful it is....teasing me into not only just looking at his pictures and coveting this fantastically spun fiber...he has just finally broken down my resolve and has MADE ME WANT TO SPIN MY OWN FIBER! THE NERVE! How dare he? He doesn't even know me for him to do me this way!

I just have to learn how to spin! I need to...it is imperative that I do this....I need spindles, a wheel and roving! My need to create my own yarn from scratch and then create knitted pieces of it has my mind whirling and has created the need in my yarn addicted heart to learn this medium of creativity!

Sigh...my poor honey! When I showed him pictures of Mr. Daniels hand spun yarn...he actually said "Well you can do that too...why not?" LMAO...he has no idea what he just said...poor man he feeds my addiction at every turn...and that MR. DANIELS has just pushed me over the edge....sheesh! What did I do to him? HOW DARE HE!

(ok I hope you all know this is in jest...Dave is extremely talented and I am in awe of his work, creativity and artist's soul...I must purchas his beautifully dyed yarn soon...If I can learn to spin any where near as well as he does then I will be a happy girl....oh and I WILL LEARN TO DO IT....aftering seeing the one of a kind fiber he created I just have to)

I am doomed...I thought my addiction could not go any further...it is about to go farther then I could have imagined. THANKS ALOT DAVE! (LOL)

Someone grab a thermometer quick -- I think Vikkie's caught the bug, but good! So you're gonna be a spinner now, hmm? Great, good, then you can spin your own yarn to dye and not worry about where to get undyed yarn and all, and spinning can be soooo relaxing. A'course, the only thing, it takes time away from knitting; haven't yet figured how to manage both at the same time...

Ihave wanted to start spinning forever, but I just don't have the room. I think we should chip in for a studio of some sort ... just a thought. Love you Miss Vikkie, you are my hero.
