The Young, Mysterious King

El Mysterioso Rey Jr.
I consider it a public service when he wears this to the grocery store.

We're on a prairie restoration cycle at Franconia Sculpture Park and we burned the fields in that service earlier this week.


Miss Julie had a birthday!

In her honor
(1) Claire the Lamb produced this bag o' fleece which
(2) I (in her honor) spun into yarn.

13 oz prepared fleece spun into 576 yards 12 wpi 2 ply sport weight yumminess.

Color - natural

Texture - soft and bouncy


Destined to be knit into what I hope will be an appropriately honorable Christmas gift.

And more spinning.

"Insect Wings"
Hello Yarn Fiber Club
February 2008
10 oz (how I love the double club) BFL

Spun into:
323 yards
10.5 wpi
DK Weight

Julie Frick energized a great devotional cowl worship on Ravelry and Flickr.

After a secret gift project is complete (not for you Miss Julie, not yet :-))
Insect Wings will become a cowl.

Ooh, thanks for the tip on the cowl groups. I am very close to finishing up a teal green silk cowl...somehow it is my first cowl ever, but WOW! It was so fast and amazing, and I can't wait to wear it!

The spinning is lovely as always, and that El Mysterioso has an awesome mask.

It is a good thing that you have such a hero to accompany you...because you never really know what could happen out there in the world!

The young mysterious king is a crack up!

OK, I read first that Insect Wings was going to become a cow. . .Thought that sounded pretty interesting but a cowl makes much more sense.

You are so lucky to have your own Super Hero. Or Professional Wrestler.

Very pretty spinning! I really liked seeing insect wings spun up - you enabler you - I have the double dose as well and I'm trying to decide between her two recent shipments. Too many choices, so little time! =)
