I feel too crappy to travel anywhere this weekend. Bummer since I had a few days off and they’re having record high temps here in sunny CA. Nicest weather, in fact, since I got here in December.
Left my camera at my folk’s house in MN. Will get mailed back next week. Still…I feel nervous as a Chihuaua in a room full of rambuncious kindergarteners without it. Dramatic, yes, but the point should be illustrated.
Instead of wandering through, say, Yosemite or Kings Canyon this weekend (which was what I had in mind before getting sick) I’m chilling, coffee-shop knitting/blogging, watching DVD’s.
Managed to start a little sewing project but it’s a gift so no more details until mailed. Sewing in a hotel room is a feat! Comical, really, had I the camera I’d document for you.
Started a sweater for moi! Moving along quite quickly. Have no camera so no pics but here’s a pilfered pic of the sweater pattern:
Mine is in an undyed, lovely chocolate brown wool called Shepherds Own by Fibranatura. Bought at Village Wools in Albuquerque, it’s a soft, smooshy steal at around $8 for 225 yards. Comes in all natural colors (grey, cream, browns). Again, a pilfered pic:
Mine is this color. Not dyed, it’s the actual color of the sheeps’ fleece! How cool is that! Instead of a dye lot on the label, it had a “FLOCK NUMBER.” Pics when the camera shows up.
