Believe it or not, this is an action shot. It's Jenni's Princess Blue Merino/Silk that I was spinning more of this morning. And why not multi-task and play with the action shots feature on my camera, I ask you? So I did. Which resulted in a slight over-twisted section from my trying to spin one handed and hold the camera steady with the other. I got it worked out, and I'm back on track now.

Oh, and I was right - it's Meg Swansen's Knitting that has the special arch shaping for the sock. She says her mother (the illustrious Elizabeth Zimmerman, of course) never wrote it down really, so this is all she could glean from a few notes. I hope I didn't infringe on any copyrights there- I just wanted to show which arch thing I was talking about, and what book it's in.

Someone's at the door!

It turned out to be DHL, arriving with the software GB ordered Monday night... less than 48 hour delivery to get us our word processing system, and they can't get a radio show to us within a week down at the station. Hm..

Anyway, I'm fighting a sinus-y thing now (yes, to answer all your questions, I have called the doctor, and her next available appointment is March 18th. I made that appointment, figuring the way this winter has been going I'll have come down with seven or eight other ailments before then, and still have reason to go.) I also have an icky dentist's appointment for next week, which I'm not looking forward to at all. Anyone want to go for me? I'll give you handspun!

You reminded me that I need to go to the dentist's... bleh. I love the pictures of Oscar--he is so very photogenic!

Guess what? School is going to keep me away from the party this weekend--so we should meet sometime and talk about the library stuff, k? So sorry, I was really looking forward to it.

Take care, Amie!

Ick. I hate the dentist! But it is a necessary evil.

And you're right about the dr. appointment. You'll have a lovely list of symptoms to discuss when you arrive.

The spinning looks wonderful.

Your spinning loods much bettr than mine! BTW The lorna's laces is just the wool roving. I think so anyway, it has been a while since I bought it and of course I have no idea where the tag is.

So are you thinking about library work now, too?

Oh and thanks for reminding me to call the dentist. :)

Your spinning is beautiful. I'm so jealous. It will be a while before I get a wheel, but I'll live vicariously through you.

I hope the sinus headache isn't too bad.
I am now on antibotics... at least I am not too dizzy anymore
