I know I’ve been AWOL. Life gets busy and I lose track and forget about the things I want to say. Lame, but true. I promised you that I would update you on the cool stuff I have gotten and I will. Right now. I want to support my friends, but I have been trying to be really good about spending money. This past few weeks, I have failed miserably at the spending part, but done well with the friend supporting part.
This my Rachel’s Dyeabolical Yarn, “Flower Shop Inferno” Bling which is 75% sw merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina (which makes it sparkle). I’m planning on using this on the Vittorio shawl. I need to finish the baby sock and my BSIL’s Christmas socks and then I can wind the yarn and begin.
The next is our Joan’s Meat Sheep Industires roving in BFL, the colorway “Magic”. I adore it. It’s beautiful and I’m looking forward to spinning it up. But, I need to finish my Cabin Cove silk/merino first. I plan on working on “Magic” during the Tour de Fleece. I am a member of Team Cranky Pants and Team Cupcake. The colors are magic.
The last new wonderful is a surprise. I sent our Marianne a cookbook from my church and she insisted on paying for it, even though I wanted to give it to her. She’s a rock star. Anyway, I got an envelope in the mail this week with a sweet card and the money for the cookbook enclosed. But, in addition to all that, she sent me this…..
I did spin for about an hour today because I was watching a documentary. I swear I’m channeling my mother. I watched a documentary about the Greeley Expedition. The bottom line? The more things change, the more they stay the same. I did manage to accomplish a bit of spinning, though.
I’m not going to promise that I’ll post again this week. I refuse to be a liar. But, I do have a soundtrack today. I heard it this weekend and it makes me laugh, so I want to include it. Yes. They are from Missouri and yes, that’s a Mouth Bow. It’s old, but the musicianship is amazing and the song is fun and funny. Have a good one and enjoy this song!! See ya’ll soon!!!!!
