First Post of the New Year
I seem to have gone into a veg mode as I can not decide what I should do first....better make a list and prioritize. I have been doing things, when I really think about it besides laundry or cleaning and cooking, but of course a person does not count those things....do they? I had someone order a pair of alpaca/wool slipper socks so have them completed and RH dropped them off when he was in town just a bit ago and the guy just phoned and loved them, he got them made for his wife....and now he wants a pair for himself just a bit larger...then he says his daughter is coming to visit from down east and she will really like them....should I have asked her size too....better get a few pair made I guess. I had made some small quilted Christmas ornaments as gifts and as I still had the stuff out in the sewing area I thought I would make a few more to start next Christmas off. I did not want to prewash the fabric but I really should have as I am allergic to the sizing. Eye's were running so bad yesterday I finally put it all away until next year. I sent a couple to my sister and she said her husband could not figure out what they were???....could he not see it was an angel!! I have been knitting...mindless knitting of dishcloths...have eleven knit but better get onto more serious knitting. Started a adult hat with llamas on it last night but for some reason all the color changing was making me crazy, will try to get the color changing thing done tonight.
I think I have overtaxed my brain keeping the computer going, then the internet was down for a couple days grrrrrrr! I had a friend phone and ask me what my address was...and I could not remember it!! While I was madly looking for something that was addressed to me it popped into my head. It might be cabin fever too, it has been sooo cold and with the snow and blowing snow I have not got far from the house I tell you. RH keeps using the bobcat to move the snow from in front of the barn and the next day it is back, he got it cleaned up and the hay guy got in to deliver a load of hay for the goats thank-goodness as the next morning it was all blown back.
I also better get some llama and alpaca fibre sorted and off to the mills, the local mill does it's exotic run the first of Feb. so they want the fibre the middle of Jan. which is going to be pretty soon, so better get at it. I am off to make my list, wishing everyone a great New Year. Am so loving the poinsettia we got this year so have to post another picture, I have been practicing with the new camera.
