when I have my unemployment appeal hearing. Send positive, righteous thoughts of justice throughout the afternoon.
Until then, I HAVE been knitting: A Wham Bam Thank You Lamb cowl for a present, made from my own handspun merino.
I've been spinning, too: Some fun, bulky thick-and-thin 2-ply (80 yards), also for a present, made from Traveling Rhinos batts. I've never spun from such an interesting mix of fibers (wool, locks, sparkle, silk, alpaca) and it was fun. I think the yarn will make a very cool hat or cowl.
I promise that there is awesome handspun for the etsy shop on the way!
Another recent project was a day-long baking bonanza with the Bergh family, resulting in lovely, individually-sized desserts for Easter dinner: Lemon chiffon and carrot cake shooters. You can see the complete photographic record of the project on Flickr.
I'll be trying to distract myself until Thursday, but I anticipate a lot of wandering around the house with a pail-sized cup of coffee and a lot of knitting round and round in the glow of bad TV. Good thoughts! Righteous thoughts!
