Zippety Do Dah...

Zippety Day...  My oh my what a wonderful day!  I always love the day after the longest day of the year.  It means the days only get longer from here on out and my winter blues will soon be burned away with good old sun shine;)  Really, it doesn't take a whole lot to keep this girl happy you know!

I don't think I really have anything to post about except the new combed top and batts at the shop LunabudKnits and the weather we have had recently which has delayed a few packages getting out on time.

You know me, I'm always looking for new products at reasonable prices.  We have a winner, winner, chicken dinner with the new Merino Combed Top!  It is available on the Etsy site as well as the new site :  I've picked a few Holiday Colors to show it off:



Tartan Green

The next order of business is our new creation of Battlets.  Battlets are wool based mini batts weighing .5 - 1 ounce each.  They have tons of mystery add ins and have been carded until we have reached the perfect smooth texture.  Some might have hemp, flax, angelina, glitz, firestar, cotton, angora, mohair, noil, neps, silk, sari, etc.  Each selection is as fun as can be and a complete surprise when you receive it as you never know what you will be getting color or fiber wise!  Great if you are in a spinning slump and need a little inspiration;)

Finally, we are getting around to the weather.  We started out with just snow, which was OK.  If I can get a good head start, my truck will just barely make it up the hill in snow.  But then a few days later we got snow which later turned to freezing rain.  Now, I know you all have seen pics of my truck, but let me assure you that it does not have 4 wheel drive.  The scrooge in me was way to cheap to splurge for that luxury as well as automatic locks, automatic windows or cruise control.  Trust me, 10 years later I'm giving myself a well deserved kick in the seat of the pants.  Needless to say, there are some days I just can't get up the hill to deliver my packages to the post office.  Especially in the ice!

Snow is not that bad.

This is after the crews finally got the roads clear.  The white stuff on the branches is not snow.  That's pure ice... Ice....Baby!

We had a respite from the cold today, in the 70's sure perks us up! Love your battlets-will be checking back for them! Have a Merry Christmas!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
