So the past couple weeks have been crazy.

The topper is that my husband has finally brought one of my schemes to life and built me an electric spinner. Now the reason I even wanted one is because I don't have a lace flyer for my wheel and this way I can spin R.E.A.L.L.Y.F.A.S.T. (PUHLUS, it was all for a total of $25.) (Sorry, if you read my Rav post. i said $15, but in true John fashion, he reminded me of the $10.00 bag of hardware he bought. I feel like that doesn't count because money he paid is like free, but he disagrees)

Like a full bobbin of singles (for two ply sock yarn so pretty thin) in 65 minutes.

I'll be back with a lot of knitting and some spinning on the new wheel. Apparently i jumped the gun starting to blog without getting in the swing of doing it more like daily (or even weekly for the love of God).

School starts tomorrow which means I am already breathing a sigh of relief that we've finished getting ready and going through the first weeks of football practice. Someone made first string offensive guard (not me) and even though I would rather he do something safer like chess or something, this is really what he loves so I'm on it.

Hey! Remember when i dyed my hair red and John told me I looked like the bastard child of Bozo and Ronald McDonald? I did.


but then, it was mostly ok because he took a leftover burger, split it and stuffed it and cooked it for me again and it was amazing?


I remember that too. Life really is a trade off isn't it?

School starts tomorrow. I just needed to say it again so i could really start to believe it because I think this summer fell in a wormhole or something.


  1. I think the red looks great. I sometimes do red just to mix it up. Right now I'm white.

    Could you please post a pic of the electric spinner? I'm very curious how he did that. I'm thinking I should show your pic to my husband...
