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

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.

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.
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.

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!!
