I have the barfing flu today, so I am home trying to not think about barfing. Bug made it extra hard this morning while he ate his banana slices. Bananas make me gag on a good day, but when I’m already feeling gross AND the bananas are in the hands of a toddler… oy.
I am feeling a tad better, though (woohoo, drank a whole glass of water without barfing) so at some point I imagine I will have time for fiberly pursuits.
This last weekend, we went to a little wool festival in Tucson. It was on one woman’s farm, and there were all of about ten vendors. It was fun, though, and Bug liked the animals. DH even got him to pet a freshly shorn lamb, but sadly, no pictures were had.
I only bought this:
Scratchy fluffy Shetland.
The spindle is an Ashford that Bug got me for my birthday a while ago. (Such a big boy – his 13 month old self got online and ordered it all the way from Montana.)
Anyway, I have yet to spin anything on it, since the only fiber I had before this weekend was silk, and I’d been warned that I should probably know what I’m doing before I tried to spin it.
Oh yeah, and Deb is doing that November calendar thing. I apologize for the glare on this picture – there was no way to position it that didn’t cause some, and this is the best.
The picture was from a calendar of all moose. A Year of Moose or some such. Given to me by the friend who gave me the moosey sweater for Bug. Mooses. Rock.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go recline on the couch with the back of one hand on my forehead. That water doesn’t seem to want to stay where it is.
