Now that RUM is over, I don’t quite know what to do with myself (I imagine this is short-lived).
I have done some more spinning, and am almost done with half of the 8 oz of vegetable-dyed roving. I’ve also started on the husband’s scratchy brown stuff from the Peachtree Handspinner’s Guild. I have a feeling that although it is scratchy now, if I wash it with a little soft soap (the kind with a bit of lanolin in it), it should be pretty cushy. Which is good, since I have a LOT of it. I will take photos over the weekend; this needs to be seen.
I killed a moth this evening, but I’m fairly certain now it was just a regular (non-wool) moth. You can never be too careful, though.
Lastly, Burt’s Bees deodorant does not work any better for me than the Tom’s of Maine. In fact, it works worse. I am going to test it again tomorrow. Woo! TMI!
It is also extremely difficult for me not to spend money on books. Perhaps this is also why it is extremely difficuly for me to save money. Hmmm…
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

I thought that we were gonna rock out with some Duck printing?
Oh! Yes. I was more referring to what I was doing in the next few days, but perhaps I will be gathering supplies for ducks, too. Yes.
Try Dessert Essence Tea Tree Oil Deodorant. It works better than my normal stuff (which I bought in bulk at Costco, so I still use it, but supplement with the Tea Tree Oil stuff later in the day, because I carry that around in my purse).
(you want TMI? I’ll give you TMI)
Love this random post. Do give a new deodorant review and post photos of the new wool!
