I will ramble to you. The other positive thing, is now I don't have to worry about blogging tomorrow. Generally my rule is to only post once in a day. So, this counts as my post for May 1st. Awesome
Fellow bloggers, I swear I have actually been knitting. Though my progress is slow going, mostly due to Lady A's distractions. Seriously, the only reason I'm not spinning now is I don't want to wake Mr. Shad. Who has to be to work in 4 hours. Is it strange that the exact time I looked at the clock was one a.m.?
The LYS sweater is making it's way around. It is huge! At some point I'll photograph
me wearing it. Really, it's not as big as I had thought, now that the sleeves are separated. It's just funny to see it on me. Loads of pictures from today. I got in my Loopy Ewe
sneak-up order. Sheri is awesome. If you love socks, check out The Loopy Ewe. She sends yarn samples and little extras, AND (my favorite) a handwritten note in EVERY package. Who does that? She takes time to write you a note. I look for that little note every time I order. And now I'm addicted to ordering from her. Which is kind of sad, because I love my Etsy
folks too! Speaking of...I ordered more fiber today. This is horrible. I need to ban myself from Etsy for awhile. Oh, I'm babbling. Back to my Loopy order. I got a printed version of the Twisted Flower Sock Pattern
, (finally!) some Yarn Pirate
sock yarn in Karma
, and in my goodies bag I got "Loopy's Red Sock Kit". With a baby yarn cake and everything!
I know, that looks just like the pics I posted earlier. Sorry. It's the first bobbin full of plied yarn! Now, the debate is...keep the small remaining bit (to be plied tomo...er today) for myself, or send it to it's intended recipient along with the first skein
? By the way, the difference between a hank
and a skein, since I have been wanting to know, is that a hank is a unit of measurement, while a skein is not (gotta love wikipedia). They look the same though and knitters, I believe, use them interchangeably. Just a thought.
