Busy Weekend

I spun and spun and spun some more this weekend, I feel like I accomplished much! I also managed to get some yarns listed that have been sitting around the last week or so. I should list more often but by the time I get home in the evening I’m usually so tired it’s all I can do to keep myself from slipping into a coma whilst making dinner.

As much as I really don’t like to move my spinning wheel, I’m going to take it with me to Wyoming over the 4th of July so that I can spin during the days while Jacob plays outside at my mom and dad’s place. They have an area of their yard that is in shade for the majority of the day, last year it was the perfect place to set up a little spinning camp and do my thing while keeping an eye on Jacob. I know that if I don’t take it with me I’ll regret it later!

So, without anymore delay, the yarn updates!

Sooper Bedlam Smoosh-170 yards

Berries & Greens-170 yards

Skeinlet Sensation Lot 28 (Already sold by the time I am posting tonight, those things go like wildfire!)

AntiquedSmoosh-60 yards

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! Eat s’mores! And potato salad! And beer can chicken! And, and, and…

*Makes mental note to avoid dastardly scale next Monday morning* 😉


I live!!

Argh, poor husband. He’s got a wicked cold and has felt like stir fried ass all weekend.

He said “Is it just me or are summer colds worst than winter ones?”

Summer is much, much worse.

We did get out yesterday and go to the park and then went to dinner to celebrate Father’s Day a little early to avoid the rush today in addition to him not feeling well.

Otherwise, there’s been yarn and spinning and running through the sprinkler in the front yard.

BedlamSmoosh, 110 yards.

Boomdiada, 183 yards.

Cucumber Cool, 183 yards

Sockins-Pastel Rainbow Superwash Sock Yarn, 400 yards.

Wildflowers, 360 yards.

I think this is quite possibly one of the coolest things ever. I don’t know what makes me happier, Mike Rowe (for obvious reasons, my goodness) or the general coolness of Stephen Hawking saying “Boomdiyada”! 🙂

Also, I’d be willing to bet money that my kid is the only one in Montana with a Moxie t-shirt!

I guess that’s it, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!
