Second Year of College to begin

Well year number two is fast approaching.  I don't have the anxiety of last year, but I am stressing about getting everything up there again.  Best thing the girls did was rent a storage locker up the street from the college.  Not sure how we will get it all home after the last year, but I got it there, so I can car tetris it home!

Knitting, I have started another project and I have not finished anything currently on my needles.  MMMM I just get bored or the draw of a pattern is just to great.

Spinning, I did another braid and am going to leave it as singles.  I did wind off the alpaca and I think I will Navajo ply it.  I have another bump of alpaca in brown that I think I will try to match and knit some warm winter gear for Hubby and I.

Almost a year gone by...

Well I am definitely not a blogger.

Knitting, I am puttering along and finding tons I want to do with tons on the needles.  Nothing really accomplished.  I have one thing I want to do for an up coming wedding....

Spinning, I did spin another braid of fiber.  The picture is not the greatest.  It is really the colors of Neapolitan ice cream.  I will add it to my stash.
 I have some alpaca on the CPW right now.  I need to find more bobbins.  I only have one.  This means shipping parts to a wood smith and trusting USPS and the wood smith to get it back to me in one piece... I don't know if I have that kind of trust.  the wheel is over 100 years old ( I think).

Gardening, Love the rain, Hate the weeds.  I think I have poison ivy in my front bushes.  We have had strawberries and lettuce from our edible gardens.  I had to fence it this year.  The cats love the fresh dug dirt and the varmints love the tender veggies.

Family, the girls did amazing!  They made new friends, are more outgoing, and Both made Deans list.  DH found a more permanent job (although on nights) and we are finally getting some breathing room.

I hope to settle into our new routine and get some things done around the house.  Some new paint, a new carpet....

I guess that is all for now.  Until I think of posting again.
