Well Hello, Handsome

Yes, you see some little bumps. If you listen to the podcast, you already know that I am working on a BFL fleece that had brittle, blonde tips. I'm spinning the broken off little blonde nubs to make the yarn "tweedy".
It's a nice lustrous dark brown, and will be a three ply yarn eventually.

I finished the Regia socks. They're being modeled by my son whose feet are smaller than the intended recipient. The pattern is Cookie A.'s BFF socks. Love them!

I finished my second charity blanket too. I think it turned out nice. Nothing spectacular, but hopefully some little one will enjoy it.


It's a cold, rainy day here. so much laundry, so little time and all that!

I don't usually mention this, but I am a work at home mom who sells books on and I hope you are all buying used as much as possible. It's good for the environment and it's good for your pocketbook.

I'm working on another charity afghan and a pair of Regia socks. You just can't beat that yarn with the Kaffe Fassett colorways. I love them and the yarn is nice and springy. I also still need to get the ribbing down on my CPH, but I am trying to focus on the second afghan because I'm under a time crunch if I want to get it in on time.

I'm spinning up a big bunch of Colored BFL. I left it a tiny bit greasy and I'm hoping to get enough for a sweater for the Chief. I'm spinning it up very fine, but the tips were sunburnt blond so there are some small blonde tweedy bits in it. Maybe I'll take a photo of singles one of these days, but right now just spinning and spinning (and picking out nepps, but that's you didnt hear that from me).

I've also almost finished washing up the Finn Fleece. Isn't it beautiful? A nice chocolate brown and the tips have lightened but are not burnt so not brittle.

Oh yeah and I am slowly carding up the Suffolk fleece I got back in February. My goal is two batts a day. It cards up so quickly and easily that it only takes about 15 minutes to just go ahead and get a few done.

Oh and I'm doing some spring cleaning too bit by bit. I guess I am more busy than I thought.

I could finally have control of the remote for more than the 14 minutes I got yesterday and what do I do? I listen to the audiobook I have. It just proves that I only want what I can't have.

I'm in a terrible mood. I want to run away.

Now watch everyone call me that read my blog. DON'T PEOPLE. I DON'T WANT FIXING. IF I DO I WILL COME TO YOU.

I crocheted a charity afghan for some National Guard members who want to be able to give them to their children before they are deployed later this year.

I'm working on a pink and white one now too. It will take longer though since the yarn is smaller.

The Chief baked bread to have with Saturday (red clam sauce) dinner.

It was great! I guess I don't have to bake anymore since he's into it now ;)

You Know You Want To

We got my mom a wireless router today. She's live people!

I really do identify with Elinor Dashwood probably more than any other Austen character, so there ya go.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

Also, I totally forgot to post about this, but I was soooooooooo tickled. We have a Ravelry group for the listeners of our podcast. I know we're not for everybody. What can I say? But anyway, we had a "Say Goodbye to Winter" swap and it was AWESOME!! My partner was Slackerella and she spoiled me!

I got some of the Knit Picks alpaca handpainted sock yarn, dark chocolate, Really pretty Corriedale roving, adorable stitch markers, a wee conch shell that she picked up on vacation, AND a gift card for Coldstone Creamery. Thank you, again! I love my swap and I didn't realize that I was so behind on posting my photo!

I know I'm Awful

I just haven't posted much lately. I'd like to make an excuse but I really don't have one. I don't know why!

Second pair of Shur'Tagals are all finished.

I am to the point where I just need to do the ribbing and put the zipper into the CPH.

I've been spinning a lot lately and I am attaching squares for a charity afghan so maybe I'll have more pics coming here soon.

Sometimes my taste in music can be questionable. I don't even pretend it's not. I can't find my CD for this so I looked it up to see if I could just listen online.

Makes me happy!
