Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

Today is a shopping day. BH and I are going to Williamsburg; first to check out the new yarn shop and then to hit the outlet malls. I will have 16" size 4 and 7 and 24" size 5 Addi turbos by tonight. We tried to lure K into joining us but she suddenly had one of those weird family things crop up - the sort of thing I totally understand - and had to turn us down.

BH and I want to get to W’burg by 10 so it means me leaving at 8. Not much time to post here and probably not much going on in the brain either. But I do want to record that, while talking to Susan, who makes my hands look like a grown-up's, every other week, I suddenly realized I could do something with my blended merino that was leaving me feeling blah. Just before I plied up all the singles, I spun a little over the fold. That technique made all the colors display (I can't really say “pop out”, which I wish it had done) more distinctly. How I wished I’d begun spinning that way instead of remembering to do so half way through the entire bump. But there is no reason I can’t spin up the second half of this stuff using this technique and then knit some garment in subtle stripes. Two different yarns but a perfect match! Thank you Susan, for letting me ramble on.

Here’s a quiz, thanks to Annie - and though I wanted to be this:

turbo charged
You are "turbo" charged.
Fast moving and classy, you get things done with
power and grace. Your expensive tastes can be
deceiving, since what you really value is
quality and efficiency. As you're careening
around those corners in life, finishing a dozen
knitted objects each month, stop and smell the
roses. Don't miss the beauty of process!

Not only was this the result I got the first time through - this is who I really am!

You are interchangeable.
Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every
eventuality covered and every opportunity just
has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You are good at
so many things, it's amazing, but you can
easily lose your place and forget to show up.
They have row counters for people like you!
