Gah. I hate not having my voice. I’ve sounded horrible the past two days, it gets better and then runs away again.

I had my “Aha!” moment with spinning this evening and got it down. I was so proud of myself. I could tell when I was starting to get tired when the fiber kept breaking and figured I better turn in. Then my lovely Pumpkin jumped up on my knee which would have been fine, had she not shocked herself from static in the process and then dug her back claws into my leg. She did nearly the same thing two nights ago when she cut my arm with her back claws. Bad Pumpkin.

We had a gorgeous snowfall this evening right after work for about an hour or two and then what sounded like an ice storm. Too bad by the afternoon all the pretty snow will be washed away by the coming rains. I’d like to enjoy it for more than a day. It doesn’t seem like it snows here like it used to just a few years ago. I hate driving in it, but I love looking at it and dealing with it minus the cars.

Weekend Full of Knitting (and some spinning)

Hello. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend (all zero of you since that’s how many read this). I’ve been working hard on a pair of socks and been attempting to do some spinning. I’m horrible at it so far and I really don’t want to frustrate myself to the point of not wanting to look at it again so I’ve been taking it slow. After my laundry is done I plan to give it another go for a few hours and hopefully things will start to click.

I’ve been sick for the past month or so with a sore throat. My doctor thought it was a virus and gave me some antibiotics which really didn’t do anything. He might be right and it could be allergies, but my voice has been slowly going the past week and it’s starting to scare me. I couldn’t yell at my cat to get her off the counter the other night. It was more of a hushed command and she could have cared less. So in hopes of regaining my voice for this weekend, I’ve stayed in as much as possible lately and rested to give it a chance to come back. Monday starts the busy season at work until June/July so I’m also enjoying having <b>nothing</b> to do.

Awaiting my new toy.

If I told you I would finally fix my problems in WordPress this weekend, that would be a total lie. Why would it be a lie? Because my new wheel is set to arrive today! After the disaster that turned into my Christmas wheel that my mom got me, we settled on a Louet S17 to replace it. It’s a good starting wheel so I think this will all work out well for me. Did I mention I’m excited?
