Since Last Time

Here are just a few of the things that have happened since my last post. They are more or less chronological.

1. I went the the annual Newport Spin-In and made lots of progress on my spindle (from last year's Tour de Fleece).

2. And while I was there I bought a bit of fiber.

3. I wore a hole into a pair of my hand knit socks. I'm still deciding whether or not to darn them.

4. I made pecan & craisin granola and it's FANTASTIC!!! It's crunchy and it stays crunchy for a while in yogurt.

5. We had 11-12 inches of snow in 2 days, and it hung around for a while.

Poor tree couldn't take it

6. I hung up a bunch of my photographs finally (on two different walls)

Framed prints and vintage cameras
Canvas prints
7. I'm making wicked progress on all 3 of my WIP Dancing entries for the Ravellenic games. Here's my Pippin socks.

8. My truck broke and had to be towed to the mechanic.

9. The truck got fixed, but she didn't come home. Instead, I now drive this.

I'm so in love

10. There's a big surprise in store for Westley tomorrow. That will be the subject of my next post.

"You will pay attention to me. NOW!"
