What I did last weekend ;o)
…seriously?!?! This is getting ridiculous. It won’t stop raining. I’m pretty sure I have an indoor swimming pool in my basement (I don’t know because I’m afraid to actually check) and I was just stuck in a hotel with a few hundred car show people for four days of rain that was at times akin to biblical deluge. It was…interesting. ;o)
I spent most of Saturday sitting in the hotel lobby with Amelia (my Sonata, for those who are new to this here bliggity blog) freaking out the car people (since it was raining, they were all in the hotel lobby, most of them were staring at me). I answered lots of questions, which was cool, and became exhausted because I don’t do crowds well. RR was by my side for most of it and while he can answer some questions, he tends to let me answer the more technical ones (the, “are you sewing?” ones usually fall into my domain). ;o) I think Tina may be right and I need to make a sign that says, “I am making yarn, I will not knit you a sweater/sock/scarf and no, I do not know what I will knit with the yarn when I am done, but thanks for looking!” and hope that helps cut down on the stress of it all. Of course, I could just not spin in public and that would definitely cut down on the questions, hehe
Anywho, because of said rain I couldn’t get many car photos but I did get a sunset:
…on the one day it didn’t rain, Friday. And, a car belching fire:
…also taken on the one day it didn’t rain.
All the time I got to spend with the wheel this weekend added up to two skeins of handspun. They are waiting for their ‘before’ photos, after which they will get a nice hot bath and a thwacking which will make them all ready for their blog debut on Wednesday – just wait, they’re gorgeous! You’ll love ’em!
…how did that happen? 14 days since my last post? No wonder I’ve been getting ‘are you still alive?’ emails – RR’s sister even yelled at me for not updating. ;o) Time flies when you’re having fun…at least, that’s what they tell me…
What have I been doing lately? Well there was the Labor Day car show, then there was the Lake George car show and the Guptill’s cruise. I had camnesia for most of it but I might be able to scare up a couple of photos…
I’ve never looked better… ;o)
It might look kinda crappy but it’ll kick some serious ass…the truck, not me. (see my disembodied head? I was trying to hide from the people…it didn’t work. ;op)
This is the Guptill’s cruise taken from the back of our truck. There were a hella lot of cars there that night!
Let’s see…I’ve also completed a pair of socks:
These are my ‘Boomerang Socks’ that I knit while we were driving halfway across the country and back [raveled here]. Why are they on sock blockers, you ask? Because apparently riding in a car towing a camper going 70mph effects my gauge. The damned things don’t fit. *sigh* I might rip back and try to relax while I re-knit the leg, or I might decide to give them away, or I might just light them on fire. I’ll let you know what I decide.
I also made up a few more of those box bags:
Some people have shown some interest in purchasing said box bags so, in the interest of keeping everyone happy, I decided to open up…
My little corner of the interwebs will occasionally have for sale box bags (those are well stocked right now), my handspun (nothing right now but I’ll let you know when that happens) and CSM cranked socks (nothing there yet either but again, will let you know). I’ll also be offering the option of cranking socks for you out of yarn you send me or yarn you pick out and have shipped to me. If anyone is interested in anything listed that isn’t available yet feel free to use the ‘Contact Me’ link over yonder in the sidebar and we’ll work something out. ;o)
Okay that’s it for now! I’m going to go back to stressing about having a college student in the family… (when did I get old enough to have a child that is a college student? Wait. Don’t answer that…)
