I did my best…

…I tried to come up with a picture of some hawt firemen for ya’ll.  The best I could do was a hot fireman:

Hot fireman...

(hot from standing over the grill, that is, though he is pretty hawt in turnout gear *grin*)

So…why do you think Tina’s so happy?

Why is Tina so happy?

…and other spinning news, here’s a crappy photo showing that I may have managed to reach maximum density on the plying head:

Maximum Density

I think I can get a smidge more on there…what do you think?  ;o)

So…what are you doing…

…this weekend?

Mine should be pretty exciting, tomorrow is the Hudson River Stitch & Spin which was lots of fun last year…

Hudson River Stitch & Spin 2008

…see?  Lots of people having lots of fun.  ;o)  The details are here on Tina’s post and if you can make it, I can promise you a good time.

Sunday I’m going to be on top of a mountain surrounded by firemen…which probably won’t suck, either.  ;op

Sorry no eye candy this week, other than the lots of people having lots of fun…maybe I can get a shot of a hawt fireman for you guys for next week.  hehehe


p.s.  I lowered shipping costs in the shop AND if you’re participating in Summer of Socks you can get a coupon code on the Rav group!

Three Days…

…I have been trying to think of how to post about Sunday for three whole days. Each day that has passed has made it that much harder to put into words the fun we had. I’ve decided, therefore, to just jump in headfirst and hope for the best…

There was fiber, there was fun, there were rides in ‘velocipedes’ to go get coffee (for those who were dirty stay-outs the night before *cough* Becky *cough*), there were wheels galore (okay there were five but that’s a lot, considering this wasn’t a ‘fiber’ event), there were spinners, there were knitters, and best of all, there were astonished muggles. Oh and a hailstorm, can’t forget that.

Pictures? I have a couple:

That’s Tina, the wheel to her Right is blog-free Becky’s and next to hers is Amelia – my Ashford is hiding on the left. Michelle was there late which is where I get the ‘five’ count of wheels. ;o)

My perspective for most of the day…

Tina – enabling.

My mother and my sister also put in a late showing – they arrived just in time to help us pack up as that dark cloud you see behind Tina and her victim er, student hit us with all of nature’s fury. I never thought you could throw four wheels, a table, four chairs, a buttload of fiber and three spinners into a Jeep in less than 30 seconds, but we did it.

There was quite a bit of interest in our booth, which was very cool. A few people have told me that we were the busiest one there. Yay spinners!
