Let's PLAY

So I'm not sure about you but when people leave me a comment I try really hard to respond. I either email them back if their email is included in the comment. Or I click their name from my blog and go back to their blog and leave a comment. While I'm there I look around their blog and eventually end up clicking on a link on their side bar and just see where it goes.(sometimes a link in their post).. kinda like the 7 degrees of separation type thingy. Plus it helps get the comments flowing! Sometimes I even find some blogs that I want to read all the time and I add them to my bloglines.
Anyways It's a game I like to play. It's fun why don't you try? It only works if people have neato links and buttons on their blog so if you don't why don't you put some up? (you can start with me I even have a button!) still not sure? I'll walk you thru how I did
Last post Catherine posted I went and stopped by, left a comment. And then clicked on her Virgie Sews button and found her site. left a comment then proceeded to AmyLovie. OF course I had to click the coffee crazy knitters button.. Go see what I found. (it seems everyone is knitting the jaywalker sock.. I may have to also!) anyways I clicked on the cute monkey button and found Kimmish Knitting then on to Kim Knits. ( I try to click on different blogs I've never been to before it's more fun that way) next was Off Jumps Jack. Occasionally you'll find some blogs that aren't updated or haven't been since 2004 or so. I go back and click a different one. Anyways I ended up here stopped and I'll look around for a bit now. I've never seen this site before it's pretty scary but interesting at the same time. I think I may actually want to make this pattern.
I know it's not a blog but sometime you don't find blogs. Anyways that's how I do it... Were you on my list? NO? Why not leave a comment? I'll come visit you!

and on to our regularly scheduled post.. Yesterday I received the 2 g-squares from the exchange I'm part of. Here's a pix. they're from Diana,(no blog) she does great work! Thank you!
and finally what you've all been waiting for.. My first attempt at spinning... Here's the first part half brown and the other white or natural. And then with I plied it together I came out with this.. I love how it looks. As you can see some is really spun well while other parts of it..Well, not so good.. Ok I'll admit it,... it sucks! But hey that was my first try! I hope that soon I'll be able to get more even. (just have to get more roving) oh and here's a close up of the lovely spindle I got. I love the colors nice and bright! Pretty neat when it's spinning!
so anyways with that I'll leave you
have a wonderful weekend!

I like the "stepping stone" method of finding new blogs. It's how I found you today!
