Since it was my first week with most of my evenings to myself I took it easy and did next to nothing. Bliss...
I did hit the book store.
I'm something of a book ho - it's worse than the yarn if you can believe that! I'm really trying to get it under control so instead of buying every single book that sounds even a little interesting I take notes and look for them in the library. Or in this case I took pics. And you think knitting in public is weird - try taking a picture of a book with your cell phone. The looks I got.

Rugby boots Tomorrow is the last game of the spring season.
I'll be very happy to hang up my boots till September and get most of my free time back.
I've never really photographed a completly ordinary thing for no reason. It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. And narrowing it down was rather difficult. I must of took 30 shots... of dirty shoes and I liked a LOT of them.

Karaoke Crochet?

I went out to the bar this weekend for karaoke night. Aside from the
really old hill-billy singing "Baby Got Back" I saw the strangest
thing. Well maybe it wasn't really that strange but it caught me by

I saw a woman crocheting – in the bar. Of course I was completely
without camera to capture the event – not even the craptasic cell
phone camera. I knit in public all the time so I don't know why I
found it so odd to see this woman in the bar crocheting. Maybe because
the lighting in the bar left a lot to be desired; maybe cuz she was
all by herself – if it had been a knit night out or something I'd have
found it less strange (which probably makes me strange); maybe cuz she
was sorta on the stage for the whole bar to see - there's raised level
where the karaoke happens and a few tables – she was at one of those
(I'd have been in a corner with my knitting partially under the

I feel bad I didn't go talk to her – even when I walked right past her
to do my own singing I couldn't bring myself to say hi – which is
weird because I'm never that shy. I'll talk to anybody but for some
reason I just couldn't talk to her. I gotta give her props she sat &
she did her thing & then she got up to sing and kicked butt. It
probably bugged people out when she choose metal over something light.
I gotta say I don't hit the bars very often but when I do it's always
an adventure!

It's much harder than I thought to capture a child. Don't know why in the world I thought it would be easy - musta been smokin crack.
Tisha's daughters by the way.

I think I might be abusing that title - how many times have I used it now?Tisha told me I wasn't doing it justice so I took some beter pictures.
I just finished the corner and I'm on to the even section so this will be the last we see of it here for a while.

I do want to finish it in a resonable amount time so I'll give you progress reports - it'll keep me working on it.... I hope.

Maybe a new feature maybe not. I'm trying to do a project 52 - it's not workin out so well. Maybe if I make it a feature I'll actually do it - like with the spinning. We'll see.

When I go to MDS&W I stay with some friends that live about a hour west of the festival - one hour drive home is way better than three. This year they were away for the weekend but let mom & me stay anyway. This is Gizmo their cat. Who'd been alone for the week prior to our visit.I haven't owned a cat for a while now. I've forgotten how spoiled rotten they can be. This cat had me opening windows and doors. Moving over on the couch to make space for his highness, putting away knitting to leave hands free for petting, and turning on faucets so he could get drinks.
Spoiled brat.

Whirling Wednesday

Blue Faced Lester - totally shoulda been my first spinning project. It was so much easier to draft than my previous attempts.

I didn't get a lot of yardage though so I don't know what to do with it. I may have to resort to scarves with all this bits of handspun.

Also the new toy I picked up at MDS&W. An ebony and zebra wood spindle. I don't really spindle spin - but I had to have it!

The fiber with it is merino tencel from C*EYE*BER Fibers. The color is just amazing and it's so soft! I doubt I'll spin it on the spindle though. I'm not that good with it and I don't want to mess it up.

Totally Random

I always seem to forget how boring super secret knitting is for blogging. Next week I should be entering the crunch phase so expect a bout of startitis sometime after that.

I'm very excited - blogger just announced scheduled posting! Yea!! I tend to write a couple of posts at the same time anyway so it will be extra cool to not have to get back to the computer to get them posted. Maybe I'll actually post to the blog more than once a week this summer.

I have to return the Ashford this weekend. The amazing woman who let me borrow it for the past year has finally asked for it back. I can't tell you how unbelievably sad this makes me. It isn't even on the list for wheels I'm considering buying so it's weird that I'm so upset to see it go. I suppose you always have a soft spot for your first.

I'm off to Maryland this weekend. It'll just be me & mom this year - so I expect a much slower paced relaxing day. Mom and I both have a very lackadaisical attitude about shopping. I may even take pictures if it doesn't rain. If you see me say Hi!!
