|shannon was teaching class and it was so hot in that joint that i felt like i would drop, so we left. which bummed me out. but i am seriously considering dropping by one of their meetings...you hear me girls? drop me a comment, don't keep lurking! tell me you love me, don't just think it! i love you! i said! and i mean it! you hear me?! (and you all think....craaaaaazy lady! and i have the cats and yarn and spinning wheel to prove it!) most of the vendors were local yarn shops, and i realized that a yarn shop in pittsburgh carries habu stuff, so that was really exciting. |
i spent a lot of time making mini skein samples to take with me to give shops that might be interested in carrying my work, and i gave a few to the snb girls and that was it. and it was like trying to get your senior thesis done delerious, can't walk, have a really bad headache, been spinning for 10 hours of the day maybe more...and i didn't need to. additionally, i don't know how much of my yarn sold, but it seemed that in general, if it wasn't cheap or boring, they weren't buying. and in case i thought it was just me, the snb table was loaded full of amazing stuff and they didn't have much luck, either, so. not cool. i will give their names and websites if they have em when i get em...k? oh, and photos of the yarn i got and gorgeous dyed roving.
we then went back to jason h's house, which is amazing, i gave amy the tour while jason and jake were messing with the motorcycle...and fixed it!...and amy flipped out. it has a back stairway for your servants and a huge finished attack that would make a great studio...hint, hint...super cool house. we then went for middle eastern food and headed home not too long after.
today, we went to meet my inlaw's new golden retriever, annie, who is adorable. i meant to bring the camera and totally forgot. i will take a photo of her soon. she is cute. i love dogs. i don't think the cats would dig them so much, though. i guess she had 10 puppies at one time...craziness. so i forecast some doggie knits in her future, although i was told they can't be too girly. sigh.
i am sure you remember how i always say that after i go through a busy busy period, or even finish a larger project, i get really bummed out and feel funky and out of sorts, well, today, i woke up totally out of sorts. i don't know what to do with myself. i need to start a project that isn't a skinny scarf for the "spring line". and i need to work on fine art things, because when i don't, i feel worthless. seriously. it is really really odd. or is it?
i have run across some awesome sites through the blogs i read...mini anyone? my favorite is the one with the sugar cubes. insanity. oh, on that note, the photostream bookmarklet on flickr has vanished, anyone know anything about it? it enabled you to take a photo from wherever by just clicking on it and it would put it onto your flickr account. i was sad that it was gone. sigh.
in reality tv news...i saw the new episode of project jay which was fantastic. i love that guy. so cute. and he cut his hair and it looks fantastic. and you all know that he loves knitting and crochet and quilts, right? right.
nextly, flavor of love. no link? well, the site sucks so much, i refuse! anyway, tonite, you meet the moms. and new york's mom...it all makes sense...her mom is such an asshole that and so nasty to everyone, including her daughter, that i even feel bad for her now. she probably kept her in a cage, made her fight for her food and beat her. and then called her names. and. her mom has the same mega long scary nails and when she smokes, she holds the cigarette just the same way. oh, also when the mom came to visit, in front of flav she called her fat. and on tv. and she said that she was so stunned that she was so fat that she couldn't hold it back. bitchface. evil, evil woman. and! ny didn't dress like a total whore. so i imagine that the way she acts on the show is not what she is really like. also, her dad seems really nice and really afraid of the bitchface. i still want to know ny's story. it is killing me. i feel for her. maybe it is the pschology gene that is rooted in me that makes me want to figure people out, know why they do what they do. and why i love reality tv. plus, i get to see the drama without being in the middle of it.
i got a bunch of dye in the mail...and by a bunch a mean...pounds! woooo hooo! anyway, i got some new colors that i have never used before, so i am really excited to try it out. i plan to do a little dyeing to-morrow. i used big oven bags last time for doing roving that is variegated in one color and it works so well. no mess, and then just throw it away.
i have a big order to send off, and then i will be updating the shop later in the week, i promise! i have been a bad, bad shopkeeper. bad!
