Mittens and Honey
are finally old enough to come and live with us! We are probably going to be getting them next week sometime. I have to drive up north a ways to get the. The children return from camp this weekend and I will be very happy to have them home. The house has been really empty and sad the last couple of days. I'm really happy the girl went back to camp after the funeral, but it was hard to have her here and then gone again. I figure we'll go get kittens when they are home, it'll be easier to have someone along to help with kitten tending on the long drive.
Last night I went off to the WeHo Stitch N Bitch at the Farmer's Market. I'd never been and when I met another local knitter on Ravelry who hadn't gone either, we decided to carpool up and check it out. Fun! We'll be heading back. If you're on Ravelry, look me up, I'm "rainwood" on the site!
I am thinking I need to attach a disclaimer to this blog that reads "not THAT Yarnpirate. The other one." When I set this blog up, there was not a yarnpirate out there that I could find and believe me, I googled. I know that there's lots of room for pirates on the high seas of yarn, but everytime someone confuses us, I feel bad.
I got a few more repeats done on That Damn Painter's Scarf. Yes, it is officially out of hibernation and I am trying to get the damn thing done once and for all.
Also been doing a bit more spinning. Merino/tencel blend from Chameleon Colorworks, acquired via A Mano Yarn Center months and months ago. They have the nicest spinning stuff over there and they are so nifty. I'm doing this one up as a 2 ply.
and so it goes...
