Where’s Noah When You Need Him?

We need to build an ark. It’s been raining hard for several days and although our city sewer system is built to take a lot of water, there are some quite amazing puddles out there. Big enough for ducks! Good weather to stay inside methinks.

So what have I been up to? Not a lot actually. The usual walking, knitting, a wee bit of spinning and a whole lot of reading. I’m making some headway on my Little Black Cardi and the Emerald Socks for Thom are cruising down the feet. I only have 2 bobbins spun for the Sweater Project so far though and only enough fleece for maybe 2 or 3 more bobbins-worth. I see more teasing and carding in my future. I’m going to need maybe 7 skeins though it depends on the yardage I’m getting. I haven’t calculated that yet.

I haven’t done any sewing or weaving yet. However The Hand is finally starting to improve. It still looks somewhat lumpy and scarred but the extra-sensitivity is reduced quite a lot. I actually ironed a shirt and some table linens! Whoot! It’s been nearly 3 months since The Incident With The Bed Frame. Man, it feels like forever.

I know this is a short post but really there isn’t much exciting to discuss! I’ll leave you with an action photo of the Littlest Grandbeastie, age 4, who decided that granny’s rocks (the ones I use for pattern weights) were too plain and needed some decoration:


I think the electric tea lights are for creating an artistic ambiance? Anyway, I wasn’t sure I wanted my rocks coloured at first but they’re growing on me. Hopefully the pencil crayon doesn’t come off on anything! At least she hasn’t done the whole basket full. Yet. Obviously, encouraging creativity is an important priority.

awww, creativity in motion. Glad to hear your hand is healing. What an ordeal! Love the new name of your blog: Damsels Fly. Did you see that on the bloggers meet-up list? hee-hee. We've booked our flight and hotel. whoo-hoo.

Yay! So exciting, pao! And I asked Susanne to kindly correct the error. Though it is an amusing typo, huh?
