I have been busy knitting hats for charity. I had a ziploc bag full of alpaca and alpaca-blend yarn scraps, and just couldn't decide what to do with them, so....I have been just having fun knitting funky striped hats to donate! I don't have a charity specifically picked out yet - anyone have a favorite they want to recommend?

This is some luscious mohair/corriedale that I dyed and spun. Love the peacock colors.

In exciting fiber news, I got a huge box of fantastic fiber from Cherie at Willow Ridge Fibers. As you can see, Boots the cat is approving of the roving (note that she is also lying on my knitting bag....her favorite spot!). I haven't gotten a chance to spin it yet - I'm DYING to, but promised I'd help a friend with a spinning project first - but it is soft, luscious, clean, and gorgeous! And each fiber comes with a pretty little card with the picture and name of the sheep who "donated" it. WONDERFUL touch!!!
