Baby it’s Cold Outside

Today’s high was about 32 degrees.

And so, other than taking care of critters, I’ve been mostly engaged in indoor pursuits-

Turning pumpkins in to tasty things:

Soup

And cookies

Also got some spinning done. This is about 160 yards of silky, fluffy shetland goodness. Hoping it will look kind of tweedy and nutty when knit up.

Then I thought I would take a look at the stash inventory I started last January, to see how much progress I’ve made in SY2010 (Spinning Year 2010)

I didn’t quite finish. About the time that I repacked the third rubbermaid bin, I felt the need to break out the drumcarder and accelerate the process some.

Here we have some dyed Romney, mohair and alpaca. Nice thick singles, I think.

Maybe next week I’ll get brave enough to add it up and see where I stand 🙂

    You always spin the most gorgeous yarn!

    Is that curried pumpkin soup? I make a curried winter squash soup that looks like that (I usually use butternut); it’s YUMMY. The cookies look good, too. I sometimes long for baked goods; haven’t been making much of those since Rick’s heart attack. I don’t need them, either….

      not curried, but cayene-d. made it according to a recipe, but it was too sweet, so I had to spice it up a little!

    Well, I NEED THEM! The cookies, that is. They look incredibly, mouthwateringly delicious! They are probably quite fattening and I’m sure that you don’t want to gain any weight, before the Holidays. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I am offering to take temptation out of your life and I will let you send all of your pumpkin frosted cookies to ME! It’s too late for me to worry about gaining weight.

    Those cookies sure do look yummy. I luv pumpkin and winter squash but am not a fan of pastry so I never make pie.
    OMG….if you could see how much alpaca fleece I have you would faint : )

      I’m not a fan of pastry either, so I make pumpkin pie and don’t eat the crust. Wasteful, I know,, but other people eat theirs, so it’s not all lost. So, just how much alpaca are we talking about?
