Sad Day

For so many reasons.
My ball winder fix didn't last. Things have gone all bad and pear shaped for me this last week and the winder was just one casualty. And somehow I don't feel I can get another one. Yet. Maybe. If ever.
I was so jazzed by fixing that, replacing my laptop screen! Loving yarn!
Ah yes, gentle reader. Pride goeth before a fall.  Be humble. Expect the worst!
Ah well. I am getting better, even on this windy ass day. Glad to cower in my bed with the scarf I am crocheting. It shall be called Silent Movie!
Hope I can make a hat with it.
Life wiggles on.

Badass Knitter

I love this hobby so much. It has taken the place of nearly everything else I used to like: sewing, online gaming, writing bad fiction.  What bliss and utter satisfaction to make something useful.
Of course I take it to crazy limits, as with everything I do. But that's part of the joy.
Knitting has saved me so many times. Dr. Offices, hospitals, long car rides, breaks at work, every day.
I'm not even sure why I wanted to learn in the first place. No one I knew knitted.
Happy accident!
I've been at it over ten years now and still not bored. Plus I finally learned to crochet. And I have made things for everyone I care about.
That is a great hobby.

Katrina and Jessica

Projects complete.
Two hats and booties and some boot cuffs. What next????

My ball winder. Ah, yes! I found a post and followed the instructions. Life is good. Phone and good yarn.
I finished Jessica's boot cuffs. Just messing with little projects. So glad to have the winder working again. It slipped off the gear doing the big yarn.
Raining and cold right now. Could go all icy. Nap time!!!!

After a week of horrible phonelessness I am once again part of the 21st century. I did get a lot of knitting done. Miranda's Thunder hat scarf and half hat. A pair of wrist warmers cabled for Janis. Two hats started for Katrina. On to booties!
Yesterday there was a school shooting in Florida and it really makes me wonder why these things are allowed to happen. Sick and sad.
Don't get me wrong. I love guns. For target practice. Not to hurt people. I'm not sure I could even defend myself. How does someone kill dozens of people?
There has to be an answer besides get rid of guns.

And down to one hat in my locker!
