are we there yet?
should get up early more often! get stuff done!" i get home by 9:30a...do some stuff, check email, prep fiber...exhaustion overcomes me. i get a coffe and some cereal. i try to call pgh knit and bead to make sure that they hold a skein of yarn for someone who bought it. they don't open until 11:30. i fall asleep. exhausted like i haven't slept in a month and just ran a marathon. i didn't. run a marathon, i mean. i wake up and it is about 2. i had crazy dreams about getting heat stroke while in pittsburgh, getting a migraine, getting lost and not remembering any phone numbers to call. strange. when i wake, i call knit and bead and they tell me that moments before someone came in and bought 11 skeins of my yarn. including that one. moments before. sigh. i had emailed them a few days ago about holding it for me, but i don't know if they check their email. ah well. i was able to get enough of the fiber together to spin another and then threw in a matching skein of bordeaux ingeo that is super pretty. i would have taken photos of the ton of yarn i have spun somehow in the past few days despite my exhaustion, but it was dark and dismal save for about an hour this morning. hopefully to-morrow it will be better. i have had a migraine today, also, or i am just totally zonked and out of it. so much for getting up early, huh?
i also dyed some sock yarn, that looks amazing, a vibrant salmony orange with brown, gorgeous! it will be self striping for socks. also a big fatty skein of gorgeous mohair dyed in similar colors and a bunch of fiber. i still need to rinse it out. but it looks amazing. wooot wooot! i want to spin it to-morrow, so despite my exhaustion i am going to hang it up tonite.
someone emailed me interested in my wheel. i hope it comes through. i emailed her back and she hasn't replied. as soon as i know for sure, i will order my new wheel so as not to have no wheel for any length of time, g-d forbid. also, i am told by the woman that i get my yarns from that you need a skeiner and a swift to wind sock yarn from skein to smaller skein, so i will have to order a winder, also. ja wohl. that is what i thought. no big thang. i will get an umbrella swift so i can fold it down easily. photos to-morrow. i swear it.
the gloves in a bottle came today, and i dyed in my usual manner, but put the lotion on first, which doesn't feel like anything, and my hands didn't get stained except for a bit of my cuticle. as far as keeping my hands soft, we will see. i got a bottle for my mom in law, as well.
one of my bestest friends in the universe, john from pdx, is in town this week, so we will see him for dinner to-morrow and i hope to see him thursday, as well. wooot wooot! pray for me to feel awake and alert for the rest of this week. pray! also, my friend jade, on the other side of the earth has similar health problems to mine and has been feeling really shite lately, so put good thoughts in her direction, she could really use them! the lucky girl has an electric wheel so even when she is super tired she can spin! pretty cool!
