I'm a middle school band director, knitter, spinner, alpaca owner and fiber artist. These are my adventures in the worlds of teaching and fiber arts.

Can't wait until shearing day....
That's why. Friggin' cute! Plus, I get some cria fiber to card and spin. I already got my hand carders and some practice fleece so I don't ruin Devi's fleece when I finally get it. I washed the fleece, but it's super dirty so I think it needs another soak. It's from a bay black cria on a farm in Michigan called North Star alpacas. They also sent me some fiber from a beige alpaca. I'll post pics when I'm feeling less lazy. I think I'm going to save the seconds and leg fiber and attempt to make a felted rug. I have an idea on that...more to follow. I have some corriedale to finish plying, then it's all alpaca...that is, until I decide I want to spin the rest of my hand-dyed (by me) corriedale. I'll post pics of that soon too.
I'm a dog walker and dog trainer (now), among other things. I teach a little music part time too. I'm also a knitter, a spinner, and I'm very committed to fitness. I'm married to an amazing man who is supportive of all of my projects, especially my new venture into alpacas. Oh, and I'm also a huge fan of Lost, the tv show on ABC.
Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen the most recent episode of Lost, don't continue reading. This week's theory comes to you courtesy of The Transmission, a Lost Podcast available on iTunes.
Locke was not Locke long before we realized it. As far back as season three. Back when he blew up the submarine, and had those interesting verbal sparring matches with Ben, Locke was really the anti-Jacob.
