Spinning and randomness


Miss Babs, merino and silk, singles….

DSC06985I’m actually done with it all, plied up and everything. It just needs a good soak and some better photos. The gray is flicked with pinks and blues along with the yellow nubs. It’s gorgeous and the best to date.


  • I have a new nephew!! That now makes five boy cousins on the Skeptic’s side of the family and my poor niece, the solo girl. I think though that she really loves all the boyishness when we are all together. Now to get knitting…my SIL and BIL wanted to be surprised with this one and I’m tired on knitting gender neutral.
  • Thanks to those of you who already posted a book review for the contest. Remember, you don’t need to write anything lengthy on your blog. A nice blurb will do! Let’s get some good book chatter going!
  • If I publically state that I’m giving up coffee, chocolate and sugar for awhile will I be able to do it? I’ve got some massive heartburn issues going on right now, bad enough that it is messing with my vocal chords and I’m having trouble singing (not good for a music teacher). I want to make one last ditch effort to squelch it before I give into to big pharma and take the Prilosec.
  • I’m getting a serger!! (Thanks, Grandma!)
  • When Knittykid is mad at you he calls you a “flutter!” I asked for clarification and he confirmed that yes, it is flutter as in butterfly. Not sure why that’s an insult but I guess it is. Too funny.

  1. Heh, esp since “flutter” sounds like it could be derived from something else…

    Ugh, good luck on the chocolate/sugar/caffeine thing….

  2. I’m burned out on gender neutral knitting, too. When I was pregnant I waited to find out the gender, too, but now when my friends are expecting I’m all for finding out ahead of time! I keep telling them that they will get a much better sweater if I know what to knit for, but they don’t seem to care!

  3. Love the randomness and any photos of spinning of course! Good luck with the coffee, I will be thinking of you as I am in the same boat.. actually the baby is in the boat 🙂 no coffee for me for 9 months, actually only 5 more to go.
    Green tea? Not even close, but I pretend. The no coffee thing is so very good for you stick to it! I am hoping not having it will soon become habit.

    When I was pregnant (no Prilosec then), I lived on Tums. Afterwards, acid reflux was a permanent gift from my second child. I found the only thing that really worked for me was to practically eliminate fat and acids from my diet (absolutely no cinnamon for me). My mom swears by Prilosec – it makes me feel unwell.

  5. I gave up caffeine for a while and it was so very hard. But once my system finally de-toxed, I felt so good. Steady moods, I didn’t crash in the afternoons. It was great. then one day last winter I just fell off the wagon and had a hot cup of coffee. Now I’m an addict once again. Good luck to you, though! 🙂

    PS: I don’t read books about knitting, but can i post a review of a book about other somewhat creative activities?

    Wow! We should all use such language when we’re angry.
    So precious. ;-D

  7. Can’t wait to see that spinning all plied up and in it’s final form.
