What Happened?

Posted in Black Sheep Handspinners Guild, handspun, knitting, made with handspun, spinning by tchemgrrl on January 4, 2013

I blinked and suddenly hadn’t posted in 2 months. Partly working on holiday-related projects, partly the spate of birthdays and Hannukahs and Hogswatches and Festivuses, partly a family-wide cold that lasted approximately one geologic age.

(A conversation with the toddler’s pediatrician 3 weeks in, a point at which Theo got mildly wheezy:)

Me: “We all have that cold that lasts forever right now.”
Her: “Ugh, everyone has it. Nobody can kick it in less than a month. What’s up with that anyways?”
Me: “When the medical professional is talking like that, you know it’s a special virus.”)

Now that gifts have been given and wellness is returning, I may actually be able to post regularly, again. In the mean time, enjoy the gift of a 37.5 pound vegetable that volunteered in a friend’s garden, enjoying a sweater that a 35 pound toddler refuses to wear:

squash sweater

And enjoy the gift of shameless promotion.

Roc Day, our guild’s annual fiber festival, is happening next Saturday, Jan. 12th. Info here. I’m in charge of the committee this year, which means that if you go and see a wool-ensconced blur, it’ll probably be me running around to make sure everything’s running smoothly and everyone is happy and verifying that the vendors are not sharpening their knitting needles in preparation of a turf war. You should come! Just don’t take sides in the turf war.

    […] used navy Dale Falk left over from the toddler rainbow sweater, and bought a skein of gray Falk to coordinate. I knit it at a somewhat tighter gauge than listed […]
