God, it's been a long time since I've been here. I mean really, I missed you. I did. I am trying to be a better person this year. But I think I am setting my standards too high. I am basically lazy and shiftless.
I'm back to the knitting thing again, not that I was actually gone long. But I did stop writing about it. It's like a gotta bunch a new responsibilities at work and I sort of fell apart keep up with my real life...writing, reading, walking, meditation and (naturally) knitting.
So let's pretend I never left and take off from oh, let's say...winter. My friend at work Marcia brought me a HUMONGOUS bag of fleece from her little lambies. Marcia lives on an island in the Delta where she has sheep..shearing was last week so now I have a wonderful garbage bag fulla dirty lamb's wool. The first night, of course, Melvin and Tommie found the bag and ripped an oh-so-tiny hole in it. They worried the hole until they could actually reach inside and paw scoops of wool out and scatter it around the living room. They are very bad cats.
My plan is to scour it, card it, roll my own, and spin....I have a great deal to learn but it is going to be SO great!
