The Race to Nowhere

I feel lately like I am on a race to nowhere in particular because there has been so much to do and so much going on from work deadlines to craft shows and needing to get things done. Since getting back from vacation, I want to run away on another one. I feel like I seriously need some time in a part to just sit and knit and listen to water crashing about and birds singing.

I have started to update Yarn a Day again. That blog is kind of my mojo to keep myself spinning, which I need to do a lot of because many people need yarn from me. So, I am working away on Mt. Yarnuvious! Lastnight I sat down and spun a yarn that I am so completely happy with. I am spinning a series of woodland yarns right now. I think that woodlands combined with kitsch is a decor that makes me really super happy. I wish I was more patient with sitting to felt little mushrooms and things. It’s just so much work and so time consuming to make certain kinds of supplies.

This yarn is called Autumnal Home for Birds and it has some black rubber grapes and those lovely little mushroom birds, orange ones.

I am also starting to do some early promotion for Worldwide Spin in Public day which is September 18, 2010.

In happy knitting news, I finished my Super Mario Bros. socks.

But, it is that nagging time of the morning where I need to get ready for work…so more, later.
