Am I the only one this happens to? When I got into an LYS, very often something falls off the shelf into my basket. And I wasn't touching it or its shelf, so we can't even blame my clumsiness. It just wants so badly to come home with me! That's what happened with the ball of mohair that became Aslan's Aslan-colored-blanket (which he loves) and that's what happened today to get me a very sweet new little spindle, who looks lovely next to her larger older sibling.

Coincidentally, I spun coordinating yarn on the girls, but the purple is my E-bay spindle purchase of a few months ago, and the tiny green girl is today's catch (literally).

She spins quite well, and with her delicate physique she likes lace a lot. Roses on both, of course (wonder why that is?)

I spent this afternoon spinning with new spinning friends Caroline and Vicki at Caroline's house. I had a ton of fun, spun and talked with them for three hours, and was in such a good mood when I got home I pulled out the new baby and spun a bit of Cormo (from Jen, of course) on her!

And also for your viewing pleasure, some risque boudoir photos of Oscar. He sleeps in a junk room, where we have stashed furniture and boxes that still haven't been unpacked since my moving in over a year ago. The big green thing is a couch. A normal dog would sleep on the couch. Do I have a normal dog?

No, I have a dog that instead chooses to climb into the armchair that is balenced at an angle atop boxes, and has the bowl part of a papasan base leaning on it.

His second choice of sleeping spots is under the green couch.

Hey, the dog picked me out of all the other potential mommies along the highway that day. Clearly he's nuts.

I completely understand that things drop into your basket, or arms, or whatever will get it out of the store and into your house quickest. Yesterday, a skein of Noro Kochoron, two of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, and a skein of Kidsilk Haze all jumped into my arms and demanded I take them home. :) How are you supposed to say no? I mean, really.

Your new spindle is absolutely gorgeous, Amie. I can't wait to see what you spin with it.

Oscar is so cute!! Also, I can completely relate to those things just falling into your arms or basket and wanting to go home with you.
