I’m so tired but I have these few pictures and I know you are all waiting with baited breath for the High School Musical ON ICE documentation. It was last night and we took Maggie and her best friend and also, of course, Ryan.
It was at the Palace in Auburn Hills where the Pistons play. When we got there the first thin g I noticed among the retired jersey numbers was this banner. Can’t read it?How about now? Bon Jovi had 10 sellouts. Crazy. I never even went to see him once -not even in Philadelphia. Yo.
So then the show started and it mostly looked like this. Sometimes there were more skaters and sometimes less. The kids all sang the songs and we bought popcorn for $7 each box and we did not buy the cotton candy for $12. Seriously. $12 for 30cents worth of sugar. Plenty of people got it though so…
So the next thing is this. I was talking to plenty of people this past week bemoaning the fact that I have become a sample spinner. So I got an assignment from Abby to spin about 12 ounces of merino/silk and make a lacey cardigan. I immediately started to argue with her because of that beautiful Polworth I got at SOAR. Then I remembered the wool I need to spin and knit for a swap and then I was looking at A Gathering of Lace and remembered that I wanted to make the Vine Lace Cardigan by Sally Melville. And this rambling is really about how I am a sample spinner because I have spinner ADD and can’t focus.
So, here is the goal. this week I will spin the yarn for the swap. It’s only like 8 ounces. I will spin it and find a pattern. Next week I will spin and swatch for the Vine Lace Cardigan.
Problem is I also need to be blending some dog hair with merino and spinning that….
I’m getting tired just thinking about it.
