An overdue update! (Loopy Ewe Club spoiler!)

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

Well, I've had lots of things to post pictures of, and not much time to do it! Ok well I've had bits of time, but I've been so busy listening to my newest audiobook. A few gals on plurk recommended it to me and I have barely taken the ear buds out of my ears to do much of anything that requires thinking. Like writing a blog post. The book is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and I'm 3/4 of the way through it already. I see another one of hers in my future after this one...

The other day, Sunday I think, the evening, I finished this little skein of yarn. My first skein of laceweight singles! It's pretty, shiny, soft, and I'm oh so proud of it. It'll be headed for it's bath after this post.
It's not by any means even, but I don't care a bit. I have no idea how much the yardage is, only that it's somewhere between 300-500 yards. I'll count it before I dunk it.
Yesterday I picked up my Loopy Ewe club package that was waiting for me at the post office. I could barely contain the excitement to get home and open it up! Inside was a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy. It's called Spicy Smooches.
The pattern is called Hugs and Chocolate Kisses, by Debbie O'Neill. It's a diamond lace sort of pattern, pretty!
There was a special loopy notebook and pen, and then this little thing. I had to go searching on Ravelry to find out what it was. Apparently it's supposed to decorate your Crocs.
Today I wove in the last end of the second nanner sock. They are done and ready to go. The hat is almost to the point to start decreasing. I hope to have it done and sent off soon to my aunt.
This beauty of a rose was blooming outside. We cut it to bring in, before the heat wilted it. I haven't seen a rose colored this way, though I knew there were some that did. It's sooo pretty!
Here's my little fairy princess, with her "magic wand". Don't worry, it's clean! (In case you can't tell, it's a fly swatter lol)
Well now, I'm off to watch the finale of the Bachelorette, and find out who she picks!

Regarding Outlander, can I just say I told you so and gloat for just 10 seconds? kthxbai. ;-) Seriously, I reread that series nearly every year. I love it that much!

I love your singles. I love that rose. I love all the eye candy you've offered in this post. :)

Gosh, that lace yarn you spun up is GORGEOUS! ACK, I'm so jealous of you spinning people!

Hi! I just found your blog off of Ravelry. Your lace singles are yummy. I wish there was a way to pet yarn through the computer. :) Great job spinning.

Very beautiful rose! Funny how little things amuse children, like the fly swatter! They have such big imaginations! Would love to be that young again and care free!
