i spun a lot today, i also took photos of some of it and added a few things to my etsy store, and will do more to-morrow. i did a few skeins in everyone's favorite pink and green, which i always call muffy's favorite "______", which are in with my photos. one of the skeins is pretty much all supercoiled. really pretty.
what else? i dyed this one roving a really nice bright lemon yellow with black sploches on it, and of course when black and yellow mix you get a grayish greenish color, so it looks amazing. angela would be sure to like it due to it's steeleresque look. anyway, i plan to make it a bee theme, when i ply it, it is still a single at the mo. i need to go to the crafty store and figure out what it wants to be. cute!
i also messed around with some of the brown sheep rovings i got and realized that i am so spoiled from using nice stuff all the time that i hate that stuff and it looks and feels yucko. so as you all know, i hate keeping things that i don't think i will use. i am a packrat for everything else, but i hate things sitting around that i don't want. why? i don't want them!
i mad a really cute little baby hat for one of the twins last night and started on another with the new cast on because a regular backward loop cast on with ribbing looks sloppy and crappy and is too lose and is why i had a problem with sizing hats and just tweaked the patterns to fit, instead. now i know. i had a strange fear of cast ons. dunno why. when i try to copy a book...hard. but knittinghelp.com, rocks. rock!
so i am trying to learn to be less critical. to accept people as they are. i do understand in some cases that i can't change them and i don't want to hurt them, it is best to just leave them alone. i am trying to learn to detach, i guess. which i am no good at. i try to just stay away, but it comes at me from other directions, because other people don't realize the stuff that they do, either.
there is a fiber fest in cleveland that i was invited to, and would have loved to go and see their snb posse, but we will be on our way back from vaca, and we all know that isn't going to happen. not. cool.
i have sock yarn ordered, so i am eager to get that going. i offered it to my lys, but not being sock knitters themselves, i don't think they are very interested. i wanted to give them first dibs for the greensburg locals before i ask another local shop.
i am super tired, and need to check emails before bed. i am way behind on blogs and email, i am in funk, so if you haven't gotten a comment or an email, i will...soon...i swear!
go look at new photos on flickr if you are interested...
