Up and Running Once More

A BUMP IN MY BLOG

We lost our internet Tuesday evening and all day yesterday.  Very frustrating.  I’m way more invested in the internet than I thought.  No e-mail, no google, no blog, no nothin’.  I see if I ever decide to go ‘net free, I’ll need to be weaned off, no way I’m going cold turkey!  It comforts me to know, though, that I’m in the same boat with probably a zillion others.  😉  Oh, I almost forget to tell you the reason.  Our neighbor was having fax issues, ATT came out, fixed his fax feed and didn’t bother reconnecting what he had to disconnect.  Jeez.

SOFT STUFF

The alpaca roving that I ordered from Dyeing for Color finally arrived and has exceeded all my expectations.  It’s like spinning a cloud.  I’ve knitted with alpaca yarn but have never actually seen and been able to fondle roving.  I keep petting it.

These babies are staying in their bags until two seconds before I spin so I can continue to marvel at how soft and clean they are!  I’m beginning to feel that their destiny is to be sock yarn.

ON THE NEEDLES

No knitting to post today.  Oh yeah, it’s out there, lots of WIPs, very few FOs, just not quite camera ready and besides that, I’d have to go through the house, gathering up each room’s project.  Yeah, I work on different projects in different rooms.  Don’t judge me 🙂

POT PROJECT

When we had that little snafu with the internet, I was in the middle of posting a pottery WIP so I had to postpone until today.  This is a molded bowl and I can’t wait to get it out of the damp box and get it out of the bowl mold.

It still needs some work, as you can tell.  That may be a good project for tomorrow.

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.  Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.  Gloria Steinem
