I had a crazy busy weekend, but a good deal of it was spent sitting on my butt. Kind of sounds like an oxymoron, doesn't it? It's not. I went to a BB King concert on Saturday (it was awesome!) which involved sitting in the car for the 2 hour drive to the hotel, on my butt at dinner, on my butt in the hotel relaxing before it was time to go, on my butt at the concert, and more time on my butt in the car on Sunday morning to get home. Then it was right back into the car (and on my butt) for a 2 1/2 hour drive(which should have been 1 1/2 hours) to go to my niece's bridal shower, more butt sitting at the shower, and again on the way home. Man was I tired by the time I got home! Who would've thought you could get so damn tired sitting on your butt?!
I'll tell you all about the weekend in another post, but for now I'll update you on the other things I've been doing.
This beautiful Merino Silk fiber was hand dyed and gifted to me by the wonderful Gina. I truly enjoyed spinning this and am really going to enjoy knitting it - it is VERY soft and the colors are gorgeous! Thank you so much, Gina!
8 Ounces Alpaca/Merino/Silk roving purchased at the Spinning Bee back in June. I spun the singles a bit thicker than usual hoping for a dk or light worsted weight 2 ply. The singles are still on the bobbins so we'll have to wait to see if I was successful.
My current spinning project is the June installment of Spunky Club Fiber:
I finished the TOFUtsies ankle socks.
This is pair #6 for Summer of Socks '09 (apparently I can not count because I thought I've been working on pairs 7 and 8 but after going back and checking, I see it's only 6 & 7). This pair also counts as my August socks for SAM8.
Pair number 7 is nearing completion. I have no picture of the progress, but as you might expect, the second sock looks just like the first. Once this pair is complete, I'm going to get back to work on my long neglected sweater.
It seems Hubby has been getting a little nostalgic lately; look what he dug out the other day:
1986 and 1993

Sorry for the blurry picture; here's a better shot of one of the babies:
Cute, isn't it?
Have a great day!
