Because of a sore wrist, I didn't play too much with fiber this weekend. I did spin a little bit of the fiber I won from the Virginia Fall Fiber Festival for my novice spinning, from the Bransonas. I've spun one ounce of their shetland top, and about two-thirds of an ounce of their silk top... both were really lovely. They'll be laceweight, and I'm quite enjoying them, although I don't know what they'll become - I assume a shawl of some kind, but what I don't know.

In small bursts so I don't wear out my wrist too much (which doesn't seem to be aggrevated by knitting as much as typing, because of the funky angle of my computer at work) I'm working on a few other little holiday things here and there, a simple garter stitch mohair scarf for my grandmother (finished one for the other grandmother a few months ago) that's going along quickly. The afghan project has stalled because when I decided to double up on the yarn, it shocked me to learn that would mean that I'd need twice as much yarn.

No one ever said I was smart.

Okay, they did, but what did they know?

So I went to my favorite LYS Saturday, but they didn't have the right color for the next section I'd need. I'll have to go to the other one, sometime this week. Not a problem. Once I get the mohair scarf done, I'll be able to pay more attention to the afghan, and I'm feeling fairly confident it will get done.

At work, we're the victims of some sick evil force in nature. Fax phone calls.

As soon as we moved in, we started getting phone calls to our third line that were faxes. We'd try to answer, and it would just be the steady "Booop" of a fax. We've called *69 about 47 times and gotten about 42 different numbers. We've contacted each of those numbers, all of whom claim they'll fix the problem right away. It keeps happening.

And when I say "keeps happening" what I mean is "THE BASTARD KEEPS CALLING EVERY THREE MINUTES"

We're getting a bit short tempered. I've tried knitting to sooth my nerves. It is not soothing my wrist to be knitting when I'm this ticked off.

I had really intended to respond to some comments I've heard all over about what liberals are - you know the ones, they suggest that to be liberal is to be unintelligent, non-religious, bad in general...

I struggled for a while with the issue.

What I finally came up with is that liberalism is like porn.

I may not know how to describe it, but it really pisses some conservatives off.


Okay, maybe it's more an "I'll know it when I see it" kind of a thing.

Sorry to hear about your wrist. Take good care of it. You don't want to end up in the OR and the doctors working on your wrist causing you to be a knitter-on-leave for a month or more. I was one of those on leave at 23 for carpal tunnel and it wasn't fun. And then again at 29 for a trigger thumb. Take care of your hands and wrists so you can keep knitting!

*giggling at your liberal/conservative comment* I think I piss some conservatives off around here just by living and breathing. And I mean around here as in the place where I live, not on line.

Take care of that wrist! You don't want to be "out for the season."

Hey, *I* didn't say it. :)
