I hope everyone is as excited as I am to have a long weekend coming up! I have so very much to do – work on the website for my pottery guild, design and order new yarn labels and business cards, get some time to letterbox, knit, spin, get outside, go to The Black Lamb, etc. It is going to be a very fun but busy weekend! Phew!
Even Google is in a happy spirit today! To celebrate PAC-MAN’s 30th anniversary they have a playable PAC-MAN game as the header image above their searchbar. Check it out..today only – http://www.google.com
I have had a super busy work week but also managed to get quite a bit done around here. There are a few new skeins of art yarn hanging on the drying rack and I have finished dyeing the 2010 colourways of Bootsie sock yarn. Here’s a sneak peek:
Also, I have finished one of two of my Totem pole socks. They are my project to use up my leftover sock yarn mini skeins. I cast on sock 2 today and I plan to work on it at drunken knitting at the pub tonight.
Also, I received some incredible mail today. A friend of mine traded me some fiber and yarn for a beautiful shawl that was knit for her but unfortunately she has a mohair sensitivity and it is made from Schaefer yarn with mohair. I of course love mohair…so guess what! I have a new swallowtail shawl! Yum!
I have finished up spinning this palette today:
And, I am about to dig into this one:
I hope everyone has a fun, long weekend (if you are Canadian). I know I will. I am almost finished getting everything together to release episode 10 of the Muststashyo podcast and I have a whole bunch of new stuff going on over the next couple of months that I can’t wait to share…once I get a lot of it ready..ahem. Where does all the free time go?
I think Bettie White will be my next spinning inspiration. She is such a doll.
