It does feel good to finish something. Fueled by my recent Clapotis success, I've picked Lady E back up and started putting more squares onto her. I also cast on and am about 2/3 of the way through a scarf that I'm giving as a gift this holiday.
This is the first yarn I spun on my Kromski and so the scarf is a gift for my mom who bought me the wheel for my birthday last year. Got the idea to use the Yarn Harlot's One Row Handspun Scarf pattern from Cass, who was my downhill pal for the recent SP11, because she knit one up recently and it looked SO GOOD I knew it was the perfect pattern for Mom's scarf.
November's Funky Carolina roving of the month club "November Daze" - merino/bamboo top. Isn't it gorgeous? I can't wait to spin this one up and whatever I make with it is going to be MINE. I don't think I'll be gifting this yarn.
I really ought to get my arse in gear. I have so many plans for today. Alas, none of them involve actual yarn. All of them include things that will make my grotty apartment, er, less grotty!
Oh, and internet dating? I'm going on an actual internet date. Well, not a date on the internet, but, I'm meeting someone for lunch. Yes, in a well lit public place! I am cautiously optimistic! The emailing has been very nice.
I'm going on my first actual "date" with someone (virtually unknown to me, not a part of my tight knit group of friends/community or from the ren faire) for the first time in... oh bugger... *counts* well... at least 14 years.
Cue the panic. I wonder if I should wax my eyebrows.
