We haven't seen the sun for about 10 days here in Michigan. I feel like the entire gray sky is pressing on my head. To try & counteract the gloom, may I present retina scalding fiberworks?
Socks. The yarn is Interlacements
Toasty Toes in fuschia, orange & hot purple. I'm feeling like a bunch of other bloggers I've been reading, that this may be the year to knit a bunch of socks. I knit mine on dpns (crystal palace) - I've tried all the other ways, but always come back to dpns.
I knit them in bits back and forth between the two - tops, heels, toes. If I knit a complete sock at once - I'm done, right? I never go back & do the other one. The ribbing on these? A moss ribbing meant to accomadate my fat calves without extra math.
Spinning. See Shannon? I still spin on my wheel. Yellow, fuschia, orange wool top from Color Me. I've done half of what I bought (Carla
, you there?). I'm planning on plying it to take break from my quest for non-curly singles.
The girlie goes back to school Monday, so today we're off for a last kiddo hurrah, to the splash hotel in Frankenmuth. There's beer there, ok?
Resolutions? A bunch of stuff about acting with intent, being mindful and present instead of pushing, pulling and wandering. I'm needing to make one of those life shifts this year to begin caring a little more hands-on for my mother - who I've never gotten on with. See the first resolutions and quote Nietzsche and the Rolling Stones. Which means a lot of changes for me including really picking and choosing how I use my fiber & design time.
Oh yeah, and I'm saving money to go to SOAR in 2007. I hear it's going to be close by.
