(sorry you will have to go over to ebay to see pics since im too lazy to convert them into jpeg files atm). And yes I did happenin to be listing stuff on ebay (and spinning( w o doing my hw.
What ive been up to the last week (or is it 2?):
Thanksgiving on my mom’s side of the family: really *not* interesting. Though I did teach (or rather emind) my cousin of how to knit- this seems to be a trend. Everywhere I go I seem to teach people how to knit (in the last week anyways). And while we are on the subject of knitting, check out: http://www.madewithlovebyaliberal.info/. This has the potential to be an awesome charity once it gets into full swing.
Thanksgiving- dad’s side. My aunt told my grandma that I was married. Multiple times *grandma has alz*. Quite hilarious. I started a pair of faireisle mittens there, and am done w one, 1/3 done with the other.
Gloves for ka (she saw them. Claimed them. ) They are in a pansy colred white/green/purple/red/etc colord sock weight handspun yarn. I strted them while at a basketball game on Sunday.
Scarf- orig for ka. Now for ??- cabled. Totallyl cool. But in acrylic, (shiny ply in it…white…umm yea)
Couple other pairs of gloves
Repair brbs gloves from her bday- the thumb of one got got on something easy to fix (so y don’t i? ill get to that in a sec).
The fun part w wip is that they are going to be wip for awhile- not bc I am unfaithful to them (as in evidenced by my laundry basket full of yarn…), but bc im not allowed to knit. For 2 weeks. I sat in class today, and I could not focus. At all. Turns out (ala a fun tripto the docs yesterday) that I have to have blood draws to make sure I don’t have r arthr. And that I DO have carpel tunnel and tendonitis (not caused by knitting but im not supposed to move my wrists at all). So , massive doses of antiinflamitory meds and wrist splints make life fun. And the wrist splints are for MONTHS. At least my fingers wont go numb I guess. *grumbles*
So yea. And now back to spinning. Or making chainmaile. Since I haven’t been banned from those.

Speaking of ebay, Ill be listing some more yarns- bulky and super bulky in a day or so, and will be opening a store as well (though that may take a bit longer…since I don’t have time to set one up right now.)
I’m finishing up a couple custom knit orders, and might start looking to do some consignment in the very near future.
So yea btwn selling and debate Im not really here mentally.

The only amusing thing today was this:http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=857&e=20&u=/nm/oukoe_odd_taiwan_lion . “jesus will save you” (chomp). Lol. It made me giggle, and even my dad (who has been gloating all say bc of the election) thought it was funny.
I have been add enough in the past week to finish both a hat AND a scarf. The hat, jut a standard st st w ribbing, is in the brown c is wool, which has firestar and purple merino, among some other stuff. The scarf is an angora/alpaca/merino/mohair blend that Is dk weight (Navajo plied), slightly textured, and dyed [Easter egg dyes} in orange, yellow, and bright pink.
I listed more stuff on ebay (thank you to all the people who bought my last stuff- you made it possible for me to buy more roving etc. I just ordered some from a company that was recommended by u=another spinner, that is decently priced. Im not sure how long it will take to get here though.) Other orders of the day: angora and alpaca fiber. A pound of both. I blame the election (since it’s a $$$ to but those fibers….but they are so soft…and warm…and since ill be hiding in a corner for the next 4 years…I fig what the hell. May as well).
