Or, Happy, Flippin Weekend. Finally. Even though the weather peoples are saying hateful things – like the “S” word, I still don’t care. It’s the weekend. I had the opportunity to sleep late – which, technically, I did – but if you subtract the time I was up from 3 am, then that tossy/turny thing I’ve been doing – I’d say I was up early anyways.
But who cares? Picked up College boy yesterday – who we haven’t seen since January 21st when we dropped him off because of the House of Mono that we became. It’s really good to see him – he’s funny as ever and now, after one trip to the Game store – catching up with his brother, playing Wii.
DH has been busy as well……
That’s his Fantabulous New, Upright Skeinwinder. I know I’m partial, but I love this more than his Portable Skeinwinder – it is awesome – I test drove one for him earlier today – and put on a skein of Silky Wool – wound it from the table top to my Jumbo Skeinwinder and it was amazing – doesn’t even need to be clamped down! It also folds up just as nicely. I totally broke down and requested one. This was a special request, but he made a few and has them up on Ebay right now – I think the price is incredible, too. If you pop on over don’t forget to tell him I sent you – that way, he can’t say I never talk about him! I’m pushing him to also make some more Nostepinne’s and Niddy Noddy’s – I love mine and I think other people would, too. I guess I’m pretty lucky that I have a talented woodworker who enjoys making fiber tools for me!
Thanks to a the encouragement of a few of my readers, I’ve cast on this morning for Marie Grace’s Lily Cardigan – I’m loving it so far and I think it’s going to be a quick knit. And perfect for the Spring Weather, since I’m using Silky Wool for it. I brought it along to Knitting Group today and it really is the perfect take along project – the raglan increases are ingenious – I don’t even need stitchmarkers to keep my place. I know that might seem like a small issue, but honestly – it took me a good few minutes to realize those “seam” stitches were obvious enough – I had gotten a bit panicky that the directions didn’t call for a “PM” here and there thing. Then I realized, there’s no need.
Here’s to everyone enjoying the weekend – and getting some good sleep!
