Here I am! (I was lost, but found myself this morning under a pile of dirty laundry)
I learn so much from reading the other Fiberblogs…especially the more knitting-intensive ones. And now I’m inspired in time for the Sheepthrills lace doily exchange that Angi is putting together. Pretty cool. Now I just have to figure out if I’m talented enough to actually knit and block a circular doily.
I’m into another pair of Regia jacquard socks, and still love the self-patterning, instant gratification feeling. These are for DH Eric, who (bless his heart) had to leave the house this morning at 4:25 am to get to the local tv station for his morning Boy Scout interview. Public Relations work is fun, but the hours truly suck sometimes. But he was home in time to help me get the kids ready for school, so that’s a plus.
We’re taking off tomorrow night to drive to the Eastern Shore to go visit my ‘rents again. I’m still worried about my mother (amazing how some people never learn to take it easy when they’re injured). They’ll be doing another MRI on the 8th, and that’s when they’ll determine whether or not to do surgery to fuse the vertibrae. I’ve never heard anything good about spinal surgery, but if it’s going to stabilize her neck more, than I’m all for it.
The other thing I found under that same pile of dirty laundry was four ounces of rainbow-dyed silk in rich, dark colors. Don’t recall who dyed it off the top of my head, but it was one of the purchases I made from Greencastle in April.
WooHoo–exciting news that the Threadbear crew willl be moving to Columbus. I sense a SBSTT outing in my future!
