Here is some of the yarn that I have made. The light brown is courtesy of Erica Wilson from St. John WA and her family. She gave me a huge bag of wool/alpaca/angora rabbit mix. I'm using it with another colorful jewel toned yarn to make an afghan. The light blue is merino dyed with kool-aid with my nephew Crete, and the lovely golden colored yarn is natural soysilk.
My dad was awesome enough to teach me how to do a little wood working while I was in WA in June. I made the rocking horse for Branden's sister who is just a little bit pregnant, but won't see her again till after she has the baby. I made the toy from a nice piece of poplar and was very pleased with it's outcome.
