... finished spinning an order of Pomeranian hair (dog that is, we actually own a Pomeranian goose named Lainey, lest you think that, on second thought... skip it) . I do spin quite a number of dog coats and I must say that I found Pomeranian to be quite a nice fibre. Such wee little dogs, I was actually spinning a combination of several Pom coats.

Here's my little "Pom" (of the Newfoundland variety). Angus has brilliantly discovered that if he sleeps close enough to my wheel he will receive a soothing back rub while I spin. Further to this, if I curl my toes over the edge of the treadle he gets the full massage treatment. There are no bounds to the therapeutic qualities of spinning. Sorry about the severe cropping, there's only so much Angus that will fit into a close shot.

Notes on the Einstein: Congratulations to Peg who has made it to the finish Line with her "Not So Warm" version of the coat. I love the colour on you Peg and the shorter length looks great as well.
Hats off to Gwen in Montreal and Pat here in Moncton who are working on the Einstein as their first big project.
Needles up for both Cathy and Inga who bravely frogged and reknit the skirt section.
And to Lorrie who, just this week, threw caution to the wind and joined in!
A special thanks to Nadine who sent me a great postcard this week. Thanks Nadine, you made my long trip to the mailbox (It's far, we have to drive ) soo worthwhile! I love suprises:) Did you all know that Nadine works as a fibre artist? Check this out : www.nadinefenton.com.
