Tuesday, Tuesday

I'm so glad it's election day. I'm so SICK of smeary ads. That's all I have to say on the political front.

First - I guess, pictures. I don't know who's reading my blog so they are knitting and crocheting ECU's (extreme close ups) and the like till after I mail stuff off for Christmas.

Here's an almost good picture of my son, Joel. He's looking pained because he didn't "want his picture taken. He really has a sunny dispostion - just not when I pushed the shutter.
His hair is now short after spending a week in Missouri this June. He came home and announced he wanted to cut his hair. His Dad cheered.
the facial hair is a new thing - just because he can, and it's not green like his Dad's. Seriously!

Jacy got new Skinny jeans last week. She LOVES them......( and the AD for them with the hot Emo guy, Mom...")

ECU of almost finished object. Brown Sheep mill end roving, hand spun, plied, designed, crocheted, and felted by me . The only thing left is to add an embellishment to the front. That'as all you get to see for now.

Another WIP. [maybe Christmas present] I'm using the Magic Stripes yarn from Lion Brand. A crocheted something.

Ok - this isn't all I wanted to say today, but it's enough for now.
Happy knitting and crocheting everyone.

Off to the Taos Wool Festival

I had such a hard day today. I can't believe I messed up my timesheet so badly. Long story short- I got about a quarter of what I should have gotten. I have to drop off paperwork at payroll today and maybe I'll get paid by next Friday.
In the meantime that just about ruins my trip to Taos. There's almost no point.

But I'm going - I've waited and planned a whole year and I'm not going to miss it. If I can take the camera, I'll get pictures.

More next week.
