This post is brought to you by the world's most uncooperative puppy

This is my 100th Blog Post. Just thought I'd share. I should have a give away or something?



About a month ago, I was MOHS, on Ravelry's Queen for a Day (or three) it is a fun game where you get to be queen and people make offers to you to try and get you to pass on the queenship to them. In the end I passed on my throne to Becca who offered me 40z of custom dyed fiber... How does one turn down custom dyed fiber? They don't!

If you read this blog with any regularity, you will know that I love my dog. So what better way to love your dog then get fiber dyed to look like her?



This is Becca's Fiber dyed in a custom Esme colorway. Isn't it awesome? She sells her stuff on Etsy as well be sure to check it out.

And now my photo shoot with Esme. She doesn't look to happy in it, but that is because it is hot out and I was making her do way to much work for one measly treat


If I had a dog that pooped sheep fiber I'd be set for life.

at least she looks happy! Usually during these photo shoots she plays drama puppy, why are you doing this to me!

Also, I've reached the end of this blog post and decided I wanted to do a giveaway in honor of my 100th post. Comment on this post (with how cute my puppy is... just kidding) and I will put all of you (hopefully there will be more than one) in a RNG and the winner will get a skein of Handspun yarn by yours truly.

Notes: It will not be my Esme fiber, that is mine. Giveaway will close next Friday May 27th. Please only comment once. Please leave some way (be it email or Rav name so I can contact you for address) Please allow me a week or so after the contest closes for me to spin up some fiber.

She IS adorable and the fiber is just perfect! Can't wait to see it spun up! Oh...and if you find a dog that poops fiber I want his/her puppy! :)

Esme's fibre looks like it would spin up beautifully, isn't she adorable, when my wheel arrived I had no fibre so thoroughly groomed my dog and practiced with her fur, I threatened to make my partner a balaclava!

She's so cute, and the fiber goes so well with her! I'd love to win some of your beautiful handspun.

Cute puppy and awesome fiber. Becca has me addicted to handspun now, so I'm in for the contest! :-)

I love her big bright pink tongue with all the butterscotch. Maybe whatever you make will need some bright pink buttons. Yes, world's cutest puppy. Until I get mine.

Well, congrats on your 100th post and on such a beautiful dyed roving! I can understand you not wanting to give that up :D I agree with Tonya-if you find a puppy that poops sheep fiber, let me know also!

Esme is adorable! She reminds me of the cocka-poo-poo I had growing up. His name was Rufus.
