How's that for a picture.....LOL!!!!!
I promised pictures of the Lobster bake and what a time we had!! The hostess of the party is married to a huge Jimmy Buffet fan. A few years back, I mentioned how much I missed living on the ocean and eating lobster, so, for my birthday that year, they really did it up with lighted lobsters and lighted clamshells. Dinner consisted of lobster, mussels and lots of Jimmy Buffet music. Although John was not with us this year in person, as he is out at sea as a merchant marine, I am sure that he was with us in spirit, as we celebrated in the traditional Jimmy Buffet way.........Cheers John!!!
Wow...........posting 2 days in a row........whew! Actually, I have decided now that the kids are back in school, that I will try to post a little more regularly, so that I am not writing epithanys.
In the Mail
On Friday, I got 2 packages in the mail :-))). The larger package came to me from Margrett of Running Moon Farm and the bunch of rovings on the floor, came to me from Carole, of TBF fibers on Ebay. I knit hats with Cavaliers on them for our November show, out of handspun and angora, so I am gearing up for spinning time on the spinning wheel!
Friday was such a lovely, crisp day, that I hung some skein to dry. After the yarn is plied on the spinning wheel, I always wet them down to set the twist. The skeins to the left are going to be a vest for me.....(I will post pictures of the pattern from Knitter's soon) and the skeins to the right will be a neckerchief for the fairs. That is the llama, silk, angora blend that I had been spinning.
The Dancing Competition
Well, I am down 5 pounds since the first of September.......so I am polishing those dancing shoes. Of course, I still have 35 pounds to go, but we are moving in the right direction :-))). I have to figure out a way to make those knitting progress bars work for my weight loss progress. Keeping it online, helps to keep me honest and moving in that forward direction. Motivation, I tell ya, motivation.. :-)
Tomorrow, I will try to post some pictures of the puppies. They are getting soooooooo cute!!!!! I also hope to post pictures of the Flower Basket Shawl.........but we will see what tomorrow brings...Grin.
