Tastes kinda like chicken

Business First:
My Mama Janes Class is coming up! For the low, low price of $55 you'll get my special tips and tricks, some one on one attention, enough yummy mochi plus yarn for a pair of Mama Janes, some visual aids for knitting the pattern, buttons, and if you're really lucky you'll see me trip over my own feet, knock over a few shelves of yarn or fall down. That's a bargain at twice the price. Class is October 17th from 1-3 pm. Hurry though, spots are filling up fast!
When I first saw Kraemer Mauch Chunky Roving in sample sizes I couldn't stop thinking about it. I literally laid in bed thinking about how I could spin the wool together in rainbow colors and chain ply it into submission. A few dollars and days later I'm halfway done.

Frankly I'm in awe that I made something so pretty. My original plan was to spin it all up and then ply but I have to know how it's going to end! So a plying I will go.
I've also been working on a super secret wedding knitting project for a friend. This photo is an outtake of the examples I showed the glowing bride to be. It was fun (and great cardio) pulling out my dress and shaking off 5 years of dust.
But mainly looking at her gown made me want to get married all over again. Instead I'll most likely wear my cathedral length veil while doing house hold chores like chain plying and wedding knitting.
We have been getting ready for Halloween.

I've been getting ready for Halloween by doing my best Ozzy impression.

Little Bat was created for the October installment of Phat Fiber but mainly so I could take a self portrait of me biting the head off a (pretend) bat.

Don't worry my tetanus shot is up to date and I'll be sure to wear my veil for all those (pretend) pesky rabies shots.
Pattern is available for FREE during the month of October here. Enjoy!

    Ohhh, little bats. Must make. And sheesh, why didn’t I think of Marker-Hands before. Could’ve saved alot of grief…

    Oh, suuuuure it’s a pretend bat! lol. Wish I was close enough to take your class, I can attest to your fabulous teaching skills as I actually spun something under your tutelage.
    Doesn’t everyone do housework in a cathedral length veil? It’s a little tricky vacuuming.

    Oh, that’s priceless. And if you make two of them, Maya can have a phat bat spat play-fighting them. And markers per ounce vs qiviut? Only a knitter..!
