Yup, UP

Just back from 3 blissful days in Gulliver, Michigan (in the UP), vacationing with friends at their family cabin. Friends, music, food, no tv, phone or computers, a lake outside the door & kids that get along.

I did spectacular mindless knitting, socks and homework swatches for Stitches. I even read a book, well it's a kid book but it was 400 pages. Thank you Kate for the high rec of Fly By Night.

We got home yesterday just in time for me to scoot down to see the Harlot speak at our Library. Just as everyone says, she's a hoot. Her unbounded love for knitting is really infectious & I need a shot of that!

Today, I'm taking an extra day away from book and Knitty/Spin duties to clean the house. I'll be having a Frau day. We're all messy & prone to piles in this house, but now piles are starting to run 2 deep. It's time to employ The Black Trashbag. Maybe even gather some toys for giveaway : )

Stephanie really was great & reading her book is like an extension of yesterday.
Really cool to meet you - thank you so much for the Knitty button!

if I had known you would get to see Harlot I would have sent some ginger snaps from Texas French Bread to make you miss us!

I am officially an idiot.

I sat infront of you- one row up two to the right.... wearing a Pink silk KIri, and knitting away on a Claudia Handpaint Hedera....

I looked- you looked familiar. And I didn't get it. Such a dork- thnx for all you do- Knitty was my first and favorite online knit site;)

Tempting my first sweater.

Broadripple- my first patterened sock.
geez. such a dork!

Good luck with cleaning and purging. I am with you in spirit, mop bucket in hand.

I cycloned through my house and garage earlier this summer. I phoned a neighbor with smaller children and persuaded them to take a lot of stuff... and then they brought me a bottle of wine. Less crap, more wine. Perfect.

Of course, now I've got 2 beat up strollers, a carseat, some computer parts and a big stuffed dog occupying the back of my car since the thrift shop declined them. Still, they are not in my house.
