If you're in the mood to make baby blankets...

Homespun Helpers is making an effort to donate 50 afghans/quilts/blankets to Afghans for Angels by July 1. So far we are at 14. If you want to participate, just post a picture and tag it Afghans for Angels.

We are also still collecting items for a local drive that I'm doing, and someone else is working on a preemie hat drive...

If you want to pursue any of these options, let me know or check out

Great Lakes Fiber Festival

Today I got to go to my very first fiber festival!!! It was a spectacular experience.

I got to see my first alpacas:

And my first angora rabbit:

I bought myself a new lovely bag, new wooden size 2 dpns, and my very first skein of merino superwash yarn. It has been a momentous day :)


Now that I am hooked up into Ravelry, I guess I could actually start using this blog. This is my crafty blog. Um...yeah. :)
