Waiting …………


I have an appointment in about an hour ………. lord I hate waiting around. I can’t start anything so you will be inflicted with my musings, just a warning.

I’ve hit a sock block. Not a second sock syndrome – just a why the hell did you do that syndrome. Last night I noticed some sort of boo in my sock I was working on. Being talented, I tried to fix it. My frustration caught up with me and I decided to RIP IT so I have to start over. Duh. Another problem – I have so much sock yarn I don’t know which end is up. Normally this would not be a problem but my new sweater is just waiting for me to come touch and love it and knit it so I think this is the problem. I want to do the sweater, not the socks. Hey guess what? I’m going to do the damn sweater!

I did highlight my hair this morning. I’d colored it a couple of days ago but my schedule made it impossible to do the highlighting until today. Turned out way cool. I have an under color of a coppery red and lighter copper highlights. Since my hair is all over very dark – the red is a dark brown/red. Love it.

Every joint in my body aches because we have all of this damp weather. Yoga for me this afternoon to stretch this old body out. I hope I don’t break anything.

I bought two mixed media sketchbooks with which to use my watercolor pencils I have had forever. Once I get inspired ……..

I dug out the quilt top and am going to work on it tonight in place of knitting. Just me, the top and a needle and thread – and oh yeah, a thimble. I need a new quilt for my bed so this top now has a purpose in life.

I’ve decided I AM going to get my spinning wheel for my birthday. I’m so nuts about yarn and yarny things that spinning is something I must do. Plus hey I live in Maine – we do everything here.

The first wheel I had was a beginner’s wheel which frankly was a POS. I sold it. I am getting this one.

Majacraft Aura. It must come home to me. I am in spinning wheel love. Wish it weren’t way over the top price wise, but hey I may not live long enough to spend all of my money so I’m not saving any ………….. but come January I’d better have enough.

Then I will need fiber but I have lots of sources for that. Then I will dye it – no problem – cabinet full of dye. I’m going to get all the accessories I need with the wheel this time. The other one was cheap, but everything else you needed was as much as the wheel! Horrors.

Doing a vegetarian meal tonight – Cream of  Cauliflower Soup from Laurel’s Kitchen. I’m going to make some biscuits to go along with it. I do these killer biscuits with cheese and Old Bay that make you want to eat a dozen all by yourself. Sounds like a grand dinner for a blah rainy day ……….

Time is not moving faster……….. think I’ll go to the kitchen and graze ………. MOO

    I want that wheel THIS bad. I can’t wait to spin again on something that works! It was just a mammogram – which I hate doing but we all have to. I’m sure it’s okay ………..


  2. Wow, there is a LOT spinning around in your head at the moment. Talking of spinning, I hope you get the new wheel. And I hope you post pictures of all the gorgeous yarn you dye and spin. Hope the appointment went well?

    Oh it was – I love this yarn! It’s really soft and nice to knit with – not scratchy at all. The Brooklyn Tweed Loft I’m using is Targee wool and it’s pretty scratchy.

    Spinning, another of your many talents. You never cease to amaze me.
    Glad you are going to start your sweater. It was obviously calling out to be started
