Wherein iSpin and iBlog about it

Guess what I figured out?!? I can blog with my phone!!! I know this is not news to many, but as I sat, spinning happily on a Saturday afternoon, the thought distilled upon me like the dews of heaven. Laaaaah!

The only drawback is typing with my thumbs. Not my favorite. But otherwise this is completely AWESOME. Look! Blogging again!!! And instead of playing Pocket Frogs late at night when I should be sleeping, I can be surfing my favorite knitting blogs again. I'm ecstatic. I have missed it so.

I'm spinning some carded alpaca, angora, and silk--with a wee bit of copper flash--from Wooly Wonka Fibers. I got two 2 ounce bags of this fiber (colorway "The Shire") a few years ago at the Great Basin Fiber Fest. (Side note: I don't know how to, or
even if I can, put hot links in my text. Sorry. ) I'm spinning it fine with a forward-hand assisted long draw. I'm feeling a 2-ply lace-weight coming on. Lace scarf, perhaps?

Yeah!! Valerie blogging!! You can do this from your phone?! Can I blog from my phone? I've got to know how. I love to see your spinning, and I'm so grateful for your help yesterday. But what kind of friend am I? I never came back to help with the banner!
