My hip has been bothering me...

Yes, I over did it a bit while I was in the big city, so my hip has been keeping me from my spinning wheel. That is why I haven't had anything to post for a while. I Know what your thinking, why didn't I use my spindles? Okay, it also doesn't explain why there hasn't been any knitting posted.

I don't know what is up with this sudden lack of interest in much of anything. I have no ambition. I haven't even logged into Ravelry for several days! I am hoping that I will get my mojo back soon. I have tried to spin for short times on my wheel and I have about half a drop spindle full, as well. Also, I have made a couple simple garter stitch dishcloths in medical waiting rooms. But, I must admit that most of my spare time lately, has been on Facebook, playing games. (Farmtown and Bejewelled Blitz are da bomb!)

Since I have been neglecting the blog so badly, I am going to borrow a list of questions from MsKnottyKnits blog to fill out this post. You will learn a little about me.

  1. Are you currently in a serious relationship? Yes, with a wonderful man.
  2. What was your dream growing up? To be a singer. (I sound like a frog)
  3. What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could play the guitar and piano.
  4. If I bought you a drink what would it be? A virgin frozen strawberry daiquiri.
  5. Favorite vegetable? Tomatoes, but are they a vegetable? Winter squash.
  6. What was the last book you read? Knitting Lessons: Tales From the Knitting Path

  10. If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? I don't drive anymore.
  11. What is your favorite sport? To watch, baseball. To participate in, swimming.
  12. Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? About others, I am optimistic, but about myself, I am pessimistic. (I am working on changing that)
  13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Knit, I always have at least a dishcloth with me to work on.
  14. Worst thing to ever happen to you? Wow, I am not sure that I can single out one worst thing...sorry.
  15. Tell me one weird fact about you. As much as I love to knit, crochet and spin, I can't coordinate colors. I usually need someone at the store to help me with it.

I won, I won, I won!

I am so grateful for the kindness of my friends. They voted for the yarn that I made in the CJ Kopec Creations June SAL and because of it I won a $10 gift certificate to CJ Kopec Creations! In all fairness, it is the beautiful fiber from there that makes it so easy to make an incredible yarn. Also, there were so many gorgeous entries that I think really deserved to win more than mine.

This is the original blog post of the yarn that I spun for the SAL, if you want to check out the pictures.

If you are a spinner, please check out the etsy store, and then come join in the fun of the SAL. Perhaps you will win too!
