Still no pics

as there is nothing to take pics of. Well, maybe the cats, but as they keep sleeping 23 hours of the day, there is only so much cuteness there is to fetch from them. And this is not a cat picture blog!

I did fall off the wagon again and got me another roving from Mandie – so that I have at leats one not-so variegated roving too. And yesterday I discovered that my Joy has the different rations for a reason. Like, if I go to the second one, spinning lace weight yarn is so much easier, yay! I mean, I read about this already in the accompagning leaflert, but who am I to believe the written word? So now that goes pretty well, and fast, too … I tell you, I don’t know if it’s just another experience boost as I already spun up more than a full pound of roving with the Joy, or it’s the different ration, or just that 22 micron merino top, but I’m going way faster, the yarn comes out great, and the single seems to hold up pretty good, too. If I can perfect that a little more, I might even spin a single for knitting a stole or shawl from that latest acquisition, one day. We’ll see. I’m just so happy with that wheel.

Still didn’t get to sewing, though. But at least I’m spending less time at the computer, too. And I discovered one thing: even though it was great fun to be at the lake and write on paper, typing that up at the computer is taking a loooong time – and writing with pencil wasn’t so bright, either. That way I actually have to really read every line, then type, read on, you know the game. And that’s not so much fun. And I’m bursting with ideas. I think I’ve already got that first book thought through to the end. Or rather, I came up with enough ideas for the whole story. Kind of exciting, too. But I think I will resort to using my Palm organizer next time to write stuff, and just sync it with the ‘puter. As I won’t be spending so much time away from my bag during winter, that won’t be so much of an issue anyway. And that dreaded thing is so old – if someone really wants to steal it, be my guest. It came used from ebay, and was worth just about that. Now it might for once be used at all. I even have a small keyboard for the cutie.

Just came the saving email of the day, because I ran out of etsy stores, as in forgot to write to people before the weekend, but one of the new selected ones already answered, so I’m off the hook! Great, isn’t it? I so love that stuff. And I’d like to make a weekly column, too, but I don’t have any ideas at the moment. Hey folks, what do you want to read about on the Chum? Leave a comment, and you’ll even get featured as my muse 🙂 (if you want to. I mean I’m a attention whore, I want to get my blog URL all over the web, if you don’t, it’s okay, too. Just give me ideas!)

And I’m still out of tape measures. I just hope my bf will be true to his word, and probably get me one tomorrow. By then I should have found the two hiding from me at the moment. Worst spoilee ever, me.
