Baby it’s cold outside 

I attended the second (of 6) class for beginning spinning.  In my humble opinion this is the best class for someone who wants to start spinning.  You take home a different wheel each week.  What an awesome way to find out which wheel is the best fit.
Spinning –
I finished spinning Amber - Alpaca  
A little over 1,000 yards for approx 12 ounces
3 ply approx 16 wpi

Frabjous Fibers - Silky Cashmerino
Approx 773 yards - 4 ounces
 2 ply

I think I finally found a fit for this beautiful yarn.  
The yarn is so pretty in the skein, but when I started knitting, it was total clown barf.  I frogged at least three patterns and now, finally I think we found a fit.
Thank you to all my friends that had such helpful suggestions.

I went to a quilting meeting over the weekend.  It was so inspirational. 
Here are a few photos
