Wow. Summer. Busy. Super busy. Wow.
Summer vacation started one week and one day ago. I think I’ve lived 4 lifetimes since then. I’m going to borrow a trick from my bloggy pal Adrienne and give short updates.
~I have done very little actual knitting. Not nearly as much as I wanted.
~My wheel came back from being turned into a double treadle. The flier was missing. I still cannot spin. Dang.
~The Boy is on the local swim team this year. He keeps getting DQ’d by some crazy judges who need to get a life. Yes, I’m bitter. That’s my baby!
~I want/need to buy a new car this Summer, but I don’t want a new car payment. Heh.
~My 20th HS reunion is next month. Dang. Really?
~I am addicted to this swap group on Ravelry. My favorite is the “Yarn for Fiber” board. Yum!
~Took a dyeing class with Karida from Neighborhood Fiber last weekend. Made some yummy yarn. Two sock colorways, and one larger batch that will be for a shawl.
~The shawl quantity is being knit up into a prayer shawl for a co-worker. That’s going to be more praying than I’ve done in about 4-5 years!
~My sister has introduced us to Geocaching. Similar to Letterboxing (which we tried last Summer, briefly). We are WAAAAAYYYY to into it!
~I have way more planned for the summer than we will be able to get to.
~I just want to knit, knit, knit, and spin, spin, spin!
That’s all for now. I’ll give pics of the yarn I dyed in that class later, promise!
