It's cold and gray here, which puts us, once again, within the confines of the house. And, I know many of you are now getting snow or rain and we are all wishing, hoping and praying for spring. That is, with the exception of Cookie, and few of you others who do not care for warm weather.
Speaking of Cookie...she sent me the most beautiful handspun I have ever held in my hands.I cannot wait to knit with it (although I really must finish my sweater first). I'm searching for shawl patterns for this incredible blue (merino/bamboo/silk fiber from Cupcake Fiber Company) and the stunningly elegant red (cashmere/silk fiber from from Spirit Trail Fiberworks).
I am awed by the beauty of the yarn and by Cookie's ability to spin.
Speaking of shawls...I haven't touched my Quill for quite some time, as I'm trying to stay a monogamous and committed knitter in order to finish my sweater. I remain determined.
Speaking of knitting...I did not knit over my long weekend, except for Sunday afternoon while at SnB. Truthfully, I didn't really even think about knitting, except when dreaming about the above handspun.
Speaking of cupcakes...my needlepoint students brought cupcakes to our Saturday class, which was the only time I had cake for my birthday (yes they were GF). Only on rare occasions do I miss "real" cake, but this weekend was not one of those occasions, as I was just having too much fun in general.
Speaking of fun...part of my fun week included an ethereal visit with Laurie. She is here and then, in a flash, she is gone again and I am missing her before our visit is over.
Well, that might be random enough to be loosely interpreted to be a (not quite) Ten on Tuesday with Carole.
