Well, I am smarter than (some, low-tech) cameras. So I figured out how to use the memory disk for the camera with my husband's computer, and that's how I've been able to continue the stirring and moving photographic essays you've seen here in the past months. (pardon the sarcasm)
Recently, however, my husband's computer has proven less then helpful with this.
I should probably mention that the cats get fed on top of the counter, because the freakishly picky dog likes their food better than his own.
And sometimes, when two cats don't get along, a tussle can occur around dinnertime.
And sometimes, when a tussle occurs, things can get knocked off the counter.
And sometimes, when things get knocked of the counter, they fall apart and roll away.
Things like mouse balls, for example (hi, you freaks who got here googling that expression! What a disappointment, huh? wanna learn to knit?)
So while I'm looking for the mouse ball for my husband's computer, there are varying states of guilty feelings in the house. (all from past photos, but appropriate none-the-less)
We have "I could never do anything wrong - I'm too cute"
We have "yeah, maybe I did, but if I look sorry, will you feed me?"
And we have "omigosh I'm so sorry, please forgive me I'll never ever ever do it again I swear - what was it again?" (aka "dog")
And all of this is a great shame, because I've really been quite productive lately.
So now it's time for a game of "Let's Pretend".
Oh, come on - be supportive - with the rainstorms flooding my home I've been more Queen Migraine than Princess Amie lately. Play the blasted game.
First we have this lovely sock yarn I spun up last week.
I know - it's gorgeous, isn't it? It's fiber from Spunky Eclectic that Shelia sent me from SPA last year. I think it was the Mermaid colorway? Or Waternymphs? Or something? Amy - can you tell from the photo? (thank you again for humoring me)
Next we have this tank top - observe how the striping looks completely random, and yet isn't.
And it's so soft, too...
There's more spinning - this gorgeous wool/angora blend.
I really love green and purple together (ha - like you couldn't tell that from the tank top!) and there's just a tiny bit of angelina in the blend that's always a little surprise when it comes up. It's spun so fine that the angelina is actually thicker than the single a lot of the time, so it's been a fun challenge. I haven't yet decided what to do with it - either socks or gloves, and I'm probably going to make it a three ply - two of those and then one pure angora (that of the drum carding adventure last week)
And finally, put on some sunglasses for this -
this sock toe is so much fun, bright colors like that, and with the fair isle all over - I'll probably write up the pattern when it's all done, but for now, isn't it pretty?
Thank you for humoring me. Should I find the mouse ball, I will fill in your imagination with actual photos, but in the meantime, you're my very favorite reader because you're so willing to play along. Good job.
