WARNING: This product contains a high fiber content - proceed with caution.

Check out my new friends!

They've been showing up at my door step, begging to be let in. Some of them have mysteriously appeared at night. I think my wheel may have been producing yarn or some sort of stuff.

I'd go through and tell you what everything is, but I'm really lazy.


If you can name everything in the bowl, I'll send you something. Don't ask what it is. The only thing I can say is that it's pink. In honor of Team Cranky Pants. (I'm not linking - clickey teh button mkay?)

Opal, my dearest friend, I am sorry that you cannot play - you know too many secrets.

(Yes, I know that some of the tags are visible, but there are some with no tag, or no visible tag. I can't make things too easy or too hard, now can I? )

I don't know what is the deal with Blogger lately. When ya'll comment, it shows up in my mail box. It makes me happy. When I go to reply, the return address is whateveryournameis@do-not-reply@blogger.com. It's kinda sad, but please do know that I read your comments and love all of them dearly. Matter of fact, I keep them in a speshul folder. If any of you know how to overcome this unfortunate circumstance, please let me know, and I'll take action.

By the way, you'll notice that I have added a few new buttons to my blog. That's because, like the over-committed twit that I am, I decided to participate in the Tour de Fleece this year!

Ok, that's all I have to say for now. I've got to hurry up and spin to finish a special project prior to the 4th. Opal's spinning the same colorway, however, she has 1/2 a bobbin full and I have a full one already.

Hurry up spinner girl!

Seriously - to win the pink stuff, leave your comment by Saturday. That way you can procrastinate.

Top 10 Reasons For Not Blogging

1. I'm lazy. (Notice how I made this number 1 on the list - I am dealing with reality here, people.)

2. I've been to busy spinning to type.

3. Cabana Boy deserved my attention before he left town.

4. There was no Mini-Me in the house for two whole weeks, and so I had to do exactly what I wanted to do every single day. To include not blogging.

5. Nookie is more important than blogging. There - I said it.

6. I've got a boat load of projects I'm working on, and couldn't seem to get anything accomplished. Oh wait. Most of them are still not finished. /sigh

7. It's summer. Weekend blogging has been interrupted by beach trips and more laziness.

8. I've not had any good pictures. Mainly because I can't finish anything.

9. I'm going to admit that for the most part, I had nothing relevant to share.

10. Lately life has been so insane that anytime I've felt like blogging, it's been so that I can vent. Granted, I wear me some Cranky Pants, but ya'll don't want angry blog posts on a daily basis. That's no fun, and it gets boring.

Oh! By the way, I'm forging a head with continuing to have projects coming out my arse. If you haven't signed up for the Tour de Fleece yet on Ravelry, what the heck are you waiting for?? There are a bunch of superlicious teams out there that would love to have more spinners join up.

You can use the button on the upper left hand side of my blog to head on over to Ravelry and sign up. Whatcha waitin' on?

I have no patience.

I'd rather be doing nothing.

For the love of all that's holy, someone send me a new brain.

I Went To The Gun Show On Sunday...

But on Saturday, Zonda and Christine and little ole' me packed up and headed to Charlotte Yarn to take a class from Wendy Johnson of Wendy Knits!! (More on the gun show later.)

And yes, for all of you Plurkers, it was I who threw the straw wrapper at the other table. I was behaving badly - go figure! (I would like to add that I was encouraged by the other knitters at my table cough cough Zonda, cough, Christine)

Mum, by the way, should be happy she's not the only one who gives me the strong finger!

We had such a blast! Wendy taught an awesome class, and it was really neat to meet someone in person who I've only "met" electronically, and is the reason I knit toe up socks! If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from Wendy, I would highly suggest you take it, you'll have a great time and learn a lot along the way.

From the left: Zonda, Christine, Wendy and myself!

We even got to see some out of town friends, Dani and Corey. It's good to see faces and actually speak to people in person!!

I have a feeling that the six of us will be finding a little place between here and Charlotte to have a regular meet up.

Not that we will behave enough to be allowed back, hehehe..

In other news, I think someone may be getting a wheel soon.... But I don't know who that is, I swear. Well, maybe I do. Possibly.

And for your viewing pleasure, here's the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. God love the redneck who came up with this masterpiece. If Gun Shows are good for something, it's certainly a laugh!

PS - Thank you to Charlotte Yarn for putting up with the insanity! I would show my favorite readers what I'd bought, but I might spoil a swap surprise. So there.

Special thanks to Zonda, for sharing her pictures!
