black coffee in bed....with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cocoa...
i have a dr's appt today, and am supposed to meet heather for lunch or whatever, i guess. she has been having a really bad time of it, and i am really worried about her. when did i become the stable one? i am also going to stop at knitwits to get some yarn for my tivoli top, and i want to start a one skein wonder, as well, jump on the bandwagon. i have tons of stray skeins that would work nicely. also, i keep hearing things about "shine" from knitpicks, which is only $2.39 per skein and is supposed to knit beautifully. hmmf.
i spun a few hundred yards last night, that came out really pretty. i started blending the variegated, because i can't do anything plain. it drives me nuts. short attention span theatre. if i wanted plain, i could buy it. that is why i got a wheel. to make crazy stuff. i am working on thinner stuff for the people i promised yarn to...you all can keep posted to what i have made and make suggestions for what you would like if i have offered you something...
the baby sweater just needs to be blocked and put together, which i may do today, if i have time.
in other news, i am also spinning yarn for my secret pal, i need to start sending her stuff, although i may just send one big one. i am not sure. it is nice to get lots of stuff at once.
oh, i am not sure where to vaseline my louet, it is getting smoking hot when i spin, which is pretty cool, but i think i should be greeezin it, and i am not sure where. my teacher has an ashford that she oils every time she uses it, and i know that louets don't need oil, who knows? in my spinning book, it doesn't tell you for my sort.
i want the pluckyfluff book and i have no money on my credit card!! i need to figure something out. i neeeeeeeed it!! ok, gotta get up and go.
