Short Allotments of Time

 My sister in law, Shelly, had given me some of her golden labs pretty fiber to spin.  I spun it up and then knit her this little coin purse for a Darby memoir.

  2. Darby's yarn turned out lovely.

    Sorry about Bubba :( ...looking forward to meeting your new resident!

  3. isn't it odd how quickly we get attached to those furry visitors? I still miss our mr schindler, who stayed for a few months and then moved on...
