First dance, second hat and third handspun

Here is my third yarn that I have made. I think I might make a beret style hat for myself out of it. It's pretty small, fingering weight and took a while. I learned a lot about spinning smaller yarn. I think I'm going to continue to learn every time I start a new project.

Here's the second hat with my second handspun. I really love how the yarn turned out and the hat turned out well too. I think the kid wearing it is turning out alright as well. He had his first middle school dance on Friday after school. I stayed and spied on him. The dance started out as any middle school dance does with the boys on one side of the room and the girls on the other. Then groups of girls started dancing so groups of boys started "dancing"--I'm still not sure what they were doing, but at least they weren't just standing around. Then there was a snow ball dance and one of the cool volleyball girls picked Clancy. He had about three picks of his own to make until the song was over. After that everyone just danced in a huge group in the middle and really had fun. Clancy is quite a hit with the vb girls which is really good for his self-esteem. I loved watching him. He's pretty comfortable doing his own thing without seeking approval from everyone else. (he dances like his dad, but at least they both will dance!)
The mighty hunter went looking for elk and came home empty-handed. It's just the way things go sometimes. We have had beautiful weather with lots of sunshine. I really love it. I don't mind the rain so much when we have the sun in between. I think that's it. Probably not the most exciting post for my bros to read, but maybe I'll knit you a hat! Cheers!!

Hmmmm, cool volleyball girls. I'm unfamiliar with that concept. Never had one in my house or anything...except for that one time I wore bun-huggers. Not for playing volleyball. Just for comfort.

I think that is cool that Clancy would dance. I was thinking about junior high dances the other day. Como se dice "Train Wreck???"

I think it is really cool how you can create clothes by hand. You have a real talent. Also, making your own yarn...wow. Like the out house by the way. So, what-cha doing for Christmas? I'll try to call you on your b-day, but I don't know if I have your current number. I'll talk to you later.

your #1 bro.
