Hairy chip?

Did that get your attention? I couldn't resist posting this, because how often can you use a title like that? I found this in the chip bag the other day.
I know it's not really hairy, but ewwwww.
It's been very busy here as usual. The Monkey had a big history project due in school last week. The 3rd graders have a "wax museum" where they dress up like someone and write a report. Then they are displayed like wax museum characters. He was George Washington.

He looks so funny in his wig lol! He had fun, but he didn't like it that kids laughed at his hair. That wig was tight on his head and made his little cheeks pop out like a chipmunk. It was cute.
Only secret knitting going on here. I have halted on the Juliet. Cotton fleece doubled weighs a ton. I am not sure I want a 2000 lb summer top. Any ideas?
I finally took some pics of my latest spinning project.

Northern Lights pencil roving in Icy Winter. I really like how the colors played out in this one. I have just a few overplyed spots, but hopefully they won't be a problem.
I'm not sure it will happen, but I am really hoping to get some knitting and spinning time in this week. It has to be better than last week right? My wheel stayed in the same position for the whole week. That is way too long!
I'm really excited for Friday. I finally get to meet my online friend Kim. We are meeting at Coby's studio for some shopping and chatting. We've sent messages and stuff for a while now, and finally we found a time to meet up. I can't wait!
Have a great week everyone!

The yarn is beautiful. My son had to do that a couple of years ago. Well okay, last year. My how time flies :) I'm sure he did a great job!!

All I can say about that yarn is WOW. It's amazing. I can't stop looking at it.

I bet Cotton Fleece doubled is very heavy...and warm. Is the pattern for a summer top?

Beautiful yarn! I didn't touch my wheel all last week either. What a tragedy!

That potato was just getting back to its roots. That yarn is lovely, and that wig looks--well, downright spinnable...

Everyone is commenting on the yarn and I am still stunned about what is attached to that chip! Oh my!
