I haven't felt like blogging lately. I've been knitting, and spinning, but not in the mood for blogging it all. Maybe it's the big production I have to do to put in pictures. I think I need a better, less complicated way. I think I'll look into Flickr.
In spinning news: I've finished spinning up (on the spindle) some New Zealand wool that I bought off Etsy. My friends own the store and the service is great, so go buy from them. The big news on the New Zealand wool is that once it was plyed, it was a balanced yarn. I was very excited. Hubby saw me plying some other yarn the other day (some Finn) and he said, that's not going to be balanced is it? He saw that I was putting too much twist into the ply. I was slightly afraid that he was paying that close attention, but excited that he actually listens to me when I talk.
In knitting news, I have finished up a secret pal project. I have gotten to the calf shaping of the second knee high sock. And I finally ripped out the rows that I screwed up on the tea shawl and worked it correctly. I have about 10 rows left of the diamond madeira and then it's on to the edging. If I'm able to go to see the Harlot on Sat. night, I may bring that with me to work on. I'll have the knee highs with me in case I can't listen and do the shawl at the same time.
In reading news: At the beginning of the year, I set a goal for myself to read 100 books. I wanted them to be 100 new to me books. Nothing I'd read before. I'm not into the deep books; I like the fluff and a good murder mystery. I am currently on book #62, and I forsee being on #63 tomorrow. I'm still hoping I can make my goal, but I think I'll be cutting it close. My booklist, from myspace, is linked on the side for you to laugh at my reading selections. :)
Blogstalking: I apologize to you blogstalkers out there....I'll post pics this weekend.
