Fiber related

I;ve been spinning fiber i dyed with easter egg dyes, and have spun unough for a pain of single ply socks, plus lots of other random combos of sive/thinkneess.wpi. the cable knit socks im making atm are made in a raindow heel/toe with pastelish stripes (stripes are spun in liek that- its pretty cool), and it has cables up the top only. each toes neelde (using 2) hold 26, starts w 8 w fig 8 co. yarn = single ply, 20-24 wpi. I also finished a scarf using shredded linen (yellow) carded with wool, knit on size 17 needles. Spun a second batch of shredded yarn- in a light blue fabric and bright (read pink and neon green) wool. Even my mom liked that....it will become a scarf too. its kinda delicate though because it has a lot of short threads. ATM im spining some laceweight yarn (it will be thinker once plyed). It is being spun from a randomly carded wools in bright pinks, oranges, blues, and yellows, mixed w a pale green/blue/white/yellow background.

Saw A, went to see thewholetenyards. saw it twice during break actually. good movie. Cut my hair *shorter*- always good. the shorter the better imo.

Had a splitting headache today, so i really didnt do much. My mom did, however bitch at me for losing wieght- ok mom thats nice...i dont pay attn to that to begin w and she knows it! It's spring break so i spent the day (not getting to sleep in!) getting a yoga mat- mom says i have to cause of the side fx of acc., getting a voter rgistration paper, etc etc. boring stuff. and didnt do other stuff i needed to...apathetic all the way. and i didnt get to talk to alan :(, or see him this weekend (parents forced me to go on the boat...)

In the realm of fiber- while on the boat i started knitting cleo (from knittiy)- need to find a way to line it, spun a BUNCH on singles, navajo plied some of them. THey are a pretty water/sea colors, and are laceweight b4 i ply them, dk to worsted depending on wether i 2 ply (ply 2 singles) or navajo ply them. today i dyed several small batches of roving using easter egg dye, and got (obviously) light pastel shades. pretty cool, will make a nice light color pair of socks, or gloves...hmm... :)

My car will be in the shop for all of spring break cause of the old guy that hit my car (while i was in it). He did over $3000 worth of damage ty my car even though you can't really tell from the outside. They were afriad to open the trunk because they didnt think it would close again. It will take them over 40 hours to fix my car. Lucky them.

I have to drive down to __ with my mom to pick up 1/4 of a cow- my moms side of the ffamily all seems to raise (organic) beef cows. Its cool though cause i get to see my grandma, whom i havent seen since Thanksgiving.

I finally did order roving off of ebay- woohoo dad actually being cool for once. i also listed some stuff up for ebat etc etc. always good. Ive been dying wool again- in bright greens mostly. And i have almost finished a pair of FI socks i have been working on.

Gor barb to start a blog :)
